Create files (text and markdown) in Dropbox via web interface

Helpful | Level 6

Why Dropbox web interface allows only to create folders?

Most of other cloud storages allow to create simple files (text, link, markdown) via web browser, and some alsow allow to create office files via MS Office online, Libreoffice or Onlyoffice instances.

Please make ability to create at least simple files (text, links, markdown) via web browser in Dropbox website directly, without using desktop client.

At now Office 365 Online allow to create and edit documents directly in Dropbox storage.

 

But why Dropbox web interface don't provide same feature - open office file for editing via Office 365 Online directly from Dropbox website? This is not too hard to implement, but will be very usefulf for users.

On occasion, I desire to simply create and edit a basic text (.txt) file. I don't require any complex formatting, I'm just trying to save an unformatted note, in file form. 

This can be done on my iPhone or IPad Dropbox app - happy days. However, to my bewilderment, such a fundamental task can't be completed on dropbox.com. On the browser, I can't write a text (.txt) file. There is functionality to write in the 'overview' section, and also create and write word online or google sheets - but alas, not the humble .txt file. Though dropbox.com polietely opens and displays .txt splendidly, it seems to have left out the ability to oversee their genesis.

Dropbox, could you please no discard the basics, such as writing text files on dropbox.com. It causes a woebegone weariness in us humble dropbox users.
