View Documents in full Screen on Dropbox for iPad

View Documents in full Screen on Dropbox for iPad

Apologies if this has been asked previously.

When I open a document in Dropbox on iPad, the menu bar stays and I can't find any way of getting the document into full screen mode. Great if you could assist with this.

I had the same question. Easily enough, you just tap on the open document. Hope that helps 🙂

Not terribly discoverable. Seems a simple usability test would've identified this as a problem.

Dropbox for iPad Mini

I want to see the Filenames full screen and cannot do so. They appear on the left side of a split screen and they are truncated

On the iPhone, I just turn the device in Landscape mode and the Filenames appear full screen

This does not work on my iPad Mini

The single tap doesn't work on my iPad. Any other suggestions?

Hi, I recently loaded some excel files in the Dropbox app in my iPad. 

 

Single tapping the excel file doesn't seem to close the menu bar unlike other documents like pdf and photos. 

 

Does anyone else have such a problem? Is there a way around it?
