Attaching Dropbox files in Mail on iPhone works fine, but trying to attach them on iPad just hangs.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Install Dropbox for iPad
2. Open email on Mail (in iOS on iPad)
3. Tap screen in body of email and select 'Add Document'
4. Select Dropbox under Locations
5. Find and click on file you want to attach
6. FILE DOES NOT DOWNLOAD/ATTACH (it works on iPhone, though)
Several months ago, I read a post that recommended deleting the Dropbox app for iPad and re-installing it. I did that, and it worked for the subsequent attempt, but never again. I've deleted and re-downloaded Dropbox for iPad about 10 times in recent months and each time I was only able to attach the first file. Despite deleting and re-installing it again today, I can no longer even attach one file. (Again, Dropbox attachments in Mail on iPhone work perfectly fine.)
Hey there @jaychalnick,
I'd be more than happy to look into this with you!
At first, awesome work on the initial troubleshooting - definitely helps to narrow down our investigation.
Could you also check to see if there's a difference in behavior by clearing the mobile app's cache? Maybe that will do the trick.
Let me know how it goes!
Depending on the OS you have, you can clear the mobile app's cache by:
Once this is done, log out of the mobile app, restart your device and log back in again.
Let me know of any updates, @jaychalnick!
Thanks for getting back to me and for the screenshot! Definitely provides a better visual understanding of what you're seeing.

Moving on to your concern though, could you also let me know if you're experiencing the same behavior if you connect your iPad to a different WiFi network by any chance?
Thanks in advance, @jaychalnick!
Thanks for confirming that for me, @jaychalnick.
