MacOS Sidebar icons removed when Dropbox backup enabled

MacOS Sidebar icons removed when Dropbox backup enabled

Explorer | Level 4

When I switched from iCloud to Dropbox, I noticed that the folders in the sidebar that have backup enabled no longer have the special icons that make them a little easier to recognize, they're replaced with the dropbox logo or the generic folder icon.

Is there any way to get these back while still using Dropbox, or do I just have to live with it?

Hey @jdeut, thanks for reaching out to our Community!

This is, as you already know, due to the computer backup feature, and I'm afraid it cannot be changed at the moment. 

There is an idea on our idea board though, which you can upvote, if you want.

Let me know if you have any questions!
