It would be super handy to edit txt files in the preview window that opens when you click a document in your dropbox in the browser. So I can quickly store some text without having the pain of downloading - editing-uploadingJust an idea
This would be super useful - it has been a long requested feature from many people, and would be great if it was implemented. It would save a large amount of time for many people.
Also, if it included markdown support, that would also be good.
Love the new ability to edit Office files, but I don't often work with Word if I can avoid it. How about letting us edit plain .txt files? Seems simpler than Office support.
Can we please add this feature? It is SO simple, and a fundamental component of the toolset that certain clients (I.E. me) use everytime they use Dropbox, as a tool. Please!
*Just an option when the User right-clicks for 'Edit' would be perfect! And dang easy to implement, relatively...
Indeed! They added it to the dropbox android app so it should isn't something they haven't done before...
Yes good one! Why isn't it possible to open and edit .txt files in Office Mobile through Dropbox?
I feel the same way. It has been three months. Is anyone there to answer the question?
I'd love to edit text files online. And not just files ending in .txt. I routinely edit txt, md, tex, etc.
Yes, please. It would be very useful to edit files directly on the dropbox space. This is needed, if you work on a computer, where there is no local mirror of the dropbox content. And, yes, please, allow to edit every file in text mode, regardless of the extension (e.g. .txt). With the risk to see garbage on the screen, .
Dropbox has a utility for editing Office files, for playing video, and editing text on Android. But it can't read a text file without an extension and can't make simple edits to text in browser. . This is the sort of indifference to feature requests keeps me from giving Dropbox money.
