Dropbox: don't interfere with my MacOS sidebar!!

Dropbox: don't interfere with my MacOS sidebar!!

Helpful | Level 6

I have a specific way that I organize all the shortcuts on my sidebar, and I heavily rely on its layout for my every day use.

The MacOS sidebar is already frustratingly limited with how it works, the only thing that I can do with it is set the order of the shortcuts. I use additional separators which help me, but that's as far as I can push it.

 

Considering that the ORDER of the shortcuts is the ONLY thing WE as users can control of the sidebar, it's pretty frustrating that now all of a sudden the Dropbox shortcut forces its way to the very top. I can temporarily move it back down in its place, but when I restart the computer it's at the top again.

 

Going by all of Dropbox's recent updates, I'm guessing this is on purpose.

 

This is similar to Adobe forcing me to have their dumb Creative Cloud Files shortcut in there. No matter what I do, I can't remove it. Yet I'm forced to have it because I use Adobe's software - I don't use adobe cloud!

 

It is infuriating to have these companies interfere with my personal desktop space, my personal workflow. 

Day after day Dropbox is getting closer to the likes of Adobe and other crappy mega softwares that overstep the boundaries in user experience.

 

The sidebar is OUTSIDE of the scope that dropbox should be controlling.

This is my personal space, my personal desktop, my personal operating system. 

 

Anyone else feeling similarly annoyed with this?
