If I start a new Word document ("Document 1") and go to save it to a Dropbox folder with a new name ("The saved document"), the document window will have the new name across the top for a couple of seconds and then it goes back to 'Document 1'. The file will appear in the dropbox folder but it will be empty. Same thing happens saving other documents - I end up with empty docs. Sometimes it appears to work if I save it to another dropbox folder rather than the one I want to save it in, or perhaps it's just that it works after multiple attempts. But I'm finding it's easier to not save to dropbox at all, but save to my local drive then copy and paste it over. It's annoying. I have no problem saving to OneDrive or to the C drive so it seems to be a dropbox issue.
I have looked for solutions but can't find anything.
