It would be super handy to edit txt files in the preview window that opens when you click a document in your dropbox in the browser. So I can quickly store some text without having the pain of downloading - editing-uploadingJust an idea 🙂
is essential... please do it
Yes, we really need this feature, esp. since it's already available in the app!
Echoing what EVERYBODY before me has been asking - PLEASE add this! Just a simple 'Edit' button that will bring up raw Markdown/HTML/JSON/txt (any plaintext) file, very basic editing features, and 'Save' (or autosave). Right now, it's a painful workflow of having to download, edit, upload.
Please do this! Would eliminate need for a competition like google docs / drive
Just started using Dropbox--thinking about deploying for a team of 20.
First thing I did was create a simple .TXT to store my thoughts on folder organization and get others' input.
Can't believe that there is no way to edit the .TXT from the browser. Pretty close to a dealbreaker, since at least 20% of our documents are expected to be .TXT.
Please add this feature!
@Sanchezwrote:Hey everyone, Thank you all for posting your ideas about .txt file editing here. I’ve made sure to send your suggestion and comments to our team for review. Cheers!
Great to see this being forwarded to the team! It really should be something that could be implemented really easily, especially since it's already available on the mobile app.
I'd love to allso suggest adding similar text-based files like .html, .php, .css, .js files and so on 🙂
I'd love to also suggest adding similar text-based files like .html, .php, .css, .js files and so on 🙂
Please provide an online editor for files like TXT, MD etc.
Please also see:
Dropbox App for Android has a "Dropbox-Texteditor".
