Let us choose which item to show in the context menu

So this is what I see today right clicking a file... I've no idea how long have they been there and I, honestly, don't care. What I care about is that we, as a user, should be able to choose what we want to appears on that list of context menus associated with Dropbox. Because, honestly, 9 items is FAR to much. I can tolerate a few, and I could ignore a few more, but this is far too excessive and has become an annoyance.

 

If you ABSOLUTELY cannot add a feature to allows user to select what they see, then put all of them in a submenu. That way I can still ignore it to my heart content.

 

Thank you.

 

PS: No, I actually do want to use a few of those convenient options (e.g. Copy Dropbox Link), but I really don't care about all these sharing and signature nonsense.

Agreed.  It's quite rediculous. That's valuable real estate that messes with my workflow.  At times, depending on the file I click on, I have overflowing menu items that I have to scroll to at the top or end of the list.  A simple solution would be to have cascading sub-menus to group menu items in, like countless other apps do.  All we need is one or two discrete Dropbox top-level menu item lines, and sub-menus will take care of the rest.

 

Here's my menu (this one is a normal menu list for me, cause IDropbox in Context Menu.png can't seem to find the file type that triggers an extra long menu at the moment)
