View org-mode / Orgzly files as text

Requesting a feature update that would allow org-mode /Orgzly files with the extension ".org" to be viewed as text files in Dropbox.

Orgzly for Android allows for creation and editing of org-mode files in Android, and syncing with Dropbox. Being able to view the files would useful, without having to open them in a text editor (e.g. Emacs).

I absolutely agree with this suggestion. The Emacs community would be very happy with this implementation.

This now has significantly more support than a numbe of recently delivered improvements. @dropboxers can you kindly take another look?

Echoing others here, simply having the ability to treat .org files as plain text, and edit them like plain text if possible, would be a huge quality of life improvement.

Yes please!

 

It would also allow full text searching across all your org files, for which there's no option on mobile that I know of, since Dropbox dropped the sync API.

 

This basically boils down to adding ".org" to your list of text file extensions, it can't be that hard

Dear Dropbox Development Team,

 

This issue remains in the "needs more votes" category even though it has more votes than almost all delivered ideas. To add to this it sounds like it would be an extremely small change (allow .org file format to be treated like plain text).

 

Kindly take another look at this. Thank you.
