Thought "Recents" would be a setting?

Explorer | Level 4

"Hide recent items". According to latest update (10/25/17) for iOS, there is supposed to be a setting for this. I cannot find it. Can anyone help?

Hi JeffCarlin,

The feature being in the release notes was a mistake and has been removed. It will be out soon (we are monitoring crashes as we release it to more people).

Yes, close the application and make sure to update. Once the app is updated, open it and it will do some housekeeping and open up. Then it will show the recents tab at the bottom left and you can see it.

According to Dropbox Support, the option to Hide Recents does exist within the app but has been disabled for some users while they investigate a crash. It should be re-enabled soon.

Here's a screenshot of my DB app after all updates.  I see nothing at the bottom that will allow me to prevent recent files from showing. The app "gear" settings icon also offers no choices. Thanks for answering.IMG_3017.PNG

Maybe. They told me that after the last update that also promised a "Recent files" change. Thanks for answering.
