Purpose of icons: star and circle and down arrow

Explorer | Level 4

I'm using the DropBox app for the Ipad.

1.) What is the purpose of the Star icon/button?  Is it to mark favorite files or images?

2.) What does the Circle with the Down Arrow icon/button do? I pressed it, but nothing happens...no dialog box pops up.  However, after pushing that button, the same icon but in green color (circle and down arrow) appears next to the image's data on the Home section, on the left side of the screen. 

Thanks!

Hey @RST1851,  

Yeah, the star icon is to mark favorites, that will then appear in the Starred section of your Home page. 

If you’re referring to a green circle with a down-arrow, this means that the file has been offlined. These files can be accessed even if you’re not connected to the internet! 

I hope this helps. 
Cheers!
