Can I turn off Dropbox to be able to edit my photographs -- and then turn it back on?

New member | Level 2

For some reason my microscope photographic program will not allow me to edit images when I am around Dropbox.  It is apparently accessing the program so editing doesn't work.  I have tried to turn off my Wifi -- but there are so many wifi units in my area, even this doesn't allow me to edit the pictures.  Once I edit them, I want to transfer them with Dropbox --so  normally turn my wifi back on then.  But now, even that doesn't work.  Am I missing how to turn Dropbox off and on -- is there a method possible where I won't lose any of my data?

Hi there, you can either pause syncing in the app, or close it completely and reopen it when you need to sync files!

Thank you so much Jay -- it worked beautifully.  I have been suffering with this problem for a while so I am glad I finally asked the group.
