I installed DropBox on a new iMac. Initially, it allowed me to SHARE via AirDrop. Then, after making Gmail my default email and selecting "Open Folders in DropBox APP (not the Finder)" this option disappeared. Only Gmail sharing is now allowed, but not necessary for devices within my home. Help! How do I re-enable AirDrop sharing?
After installing DropBox I changed from "see in Finder View" to "see in App" and lost the option to share using AirDrop. All my searches on the help site and Google do not mention how to re-instate sharing via DropBox. Please advise. Do I need to set back to "Finder View"? I am reluctant to do that in order to send you a screenshot, because at least now, it is working properly with Gmail.
No worries, I can use the FINDER for AirDrop sharing. I have a screenshot, but this community app does not allow file attachments, just photos.
Originally, this appeared in the DropBox app menu using "view within iMac Finder" when I set up the app, and I successfully transferred one file using AirDrop, with the option appearing there to also use DropBox. This is before I nuked the annoying Apple MAIL program and replaced Gmail as my default email.
This seems to be available only through your Finder, as it's an option given by your OS. This might explain why you're able to see it when you navigate through your Finder and not the Dropbox desktop app.
If you want to share directly from your Gmail, you can have a look at this article which talks about the Gmail Chrome extensions and the Gmail Add-on.
Let me know if this helps or if you have any additional questions for me!
