Today my Dropbox has been updated (v104.4.175). This update introduced new context menu (this one: https://i.imgur.com/5Ua5d8v.png). It looks great -BUT- it is very limited. Previously I could click on 'temporary pause synchronization' menu item. There is no such item in the new menu and I don't know how to do it otherwise. I don't like these trends to achieve simplicity by cutting functionality. Please return it back!
Same issue, I really need this "paus sync" functionality in my workflow for processing photos : I have many duplicates because i use bracketing extensively and I need to to sort my pictures from their ultimate dropbox folder to eliminate the duplicates before they get synced
Yes, please bring back Pause Syncing! There are so many times I want to control what is using my bandwidth. At least create a preference to reveal the functionality if it isn't in the menu by default.
We also have a user who needs to use a mobile hotspot right now and can't have Dropbox eat up all of her data because there's no way to pause without quitting.
I use the Pause Sync feature dozens of times a day - just clicking on the dropbox icon and clicking on the Pause Sync button. Nice and simple.
As of yesterday, my dropbox app now requires an additional click to confirm pausing, which is COMPLETELY unnecessary. Now i have to choose a duration of time for how long I want the sync paused?! It isn't intuitive at all. Please change it back to a single-click action.
Actually - it looks like this functionality is still there, it's just been removed from the menu where it used to be.
If you click the Dropbox icon in the system tray or menu bar and then hover mouse over the sync status at the bottom of the Dropbox menu, you still have the option to pause it!
The fact that I had to carefully review the new UI and then do a search of Dropbox support and then come to the community to find the answers shows that the UI has issues. Moving the mouse over the "up to date" to get the pause option is in no way intuitive. An easy fix would be to put the dropdown arrow next to the "up to date" check mark. This at least indicates that going there would expose more.
