Dropbox Logo on Dropbox Folder

Dropbox Logo on Dropbox Folder

Helpful | Level 5

In earlier versions of Dropbox for Mac I could tweak the Dropbox folder by adding the Dropbox logo as the folder icon. That meant that in my Mac's dock, Dropbox stood out (it's the item I use most often in my dock).

 

That's no longer possible after the latest update, and the Dropbox folder now blends in with all the other standard blue, rectangular Mac folders. (Yes, I know it has a faint image of the Dropbox logo...but not something one can see at-a-glance.)

Since users can no longer alter the folder appearance, I recommend that Dropbox consider changing the look of the Dropbox folder—perhaps by using its logo as the folder icon—so that we can swiftly and easily spot the Dropbox folder among all our other folders.

Just wanted to provide another data point. I have also kept a custom icon for Dropbox in the Dock for years. I even made a bash script and LaunchAgent to make sure it sticks (and fix a weird issue with the "Icon?" file).

I would absolutely love for this option to be restored.
