A somewhat-recent version of Dropbox for macOS has added the new menu item "Send with Transfer..." when right-clicking any file on your Mac, not just files in Dropbox.
I know that Dropbox's Finder Extension can be disabled entirely. But this disables syncing badges and all Finder integration. I want to keep the Finder Extension enabled for the Dropbox folder itself... I just want to disable the global menu items when outside of the Dropbox.
The similar "Move to Dropbox" menu item can be disabled individually:
Is there a similar setting to hide the "Send with Transfer..." menu item individually?
Until this menu item is removed I will be forced to disable the entire Finder integration.
@Walter that thread was posted over 6 years ago and has 10k views, with no action.
Instead, I'll be disabling the the Dropbox Finder Extension integration entirely. That degrades my Dropbox experience (syncing icons, etc.) and will surely result in me considering other backup/sync solutions that respect their macOS users.
"Send with Transfer..." should have the same escape hatch to disable it as "Move to Dropbox" does.
That is like 3 lines of code in the app. A ticket should be created and prioritized.
These menu items appear in every single context menu on my Mac, not just the Dropbox folder. It's essential that "Send with Transfer..." can be removed from the right-click menu when outside of the Dropbox folder.
Same thing here. I use Dropbox to make my life easier, not add clutter. (This now-closed thread has it all; and please don't ask me to post another stupid screenshot.)
In short: I'd like to remove some of the Dropbox items I never use from the Context menu. They only add clutter.
I don't care about Dropbox Paper and other novelties, I care about the core functionality working for me.
There's a lack of consideration for the core service that's been consistently annoying the last 3-5 years. I keep thinking about switching.
It's the problem with these kind of "please vote for feature!" practice. You get all kind of stupid requests that would get massive votes, and none of the bug or QoL fixes, because people would just switch to different platform than be bothered with voting.
