Can't export pdf to Gmail on Dropbox ios

Can't export pdf to Gmail on Dropbox ios

Dreamboxaholic
Helpful | Level 5

I can't export any pdf to Gmail on Dropbox ios. Both apps are latest versions as of 11/03/21. The Gmail option is not I'm the list of share options. When using the iOS Mail app, it switches to Gmail (my default mail choice) but the link is garbled and it doesn't export/attach the PDF.

This is only an issue with pdfs. All other file types show the Gmail option when exporting/sharing and work as normal.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Hello. I’ve found the issue: The problem was with my Gmail app and nothing to do with the Dropbox app.

I uninstalled/reinstalled the Gmail app and did a force restart to my iPhone and that fixed the problem.

Thanks.

Hello @Dreamboxaholic, let's see what we can do here. 

Out of curiosity, do you get the same experience when you try exporting .pdf files directly from your Dropbox mobile app and your Files app?

If you could send me a screenshot of any error messages, as well as the options you do get, that would be super helpful. 

Give me a shout whenever you have a moment to check this out, thanks!
