LARGE THUMBNAIL VIEW IN "FILES"

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE enable a larger thumbnail view when in "files" folders. We have pix we need to be able to see more clearly!!!!!!

I don't know about the OP, but this is still a problem for me!

When I am in a folder, the pictures display in a file name list format which I like except that the thumbnails are 1x1cm - too small for reviewing. (Interestingly, if I send a link to a shared folder, that person has options for the display of the thumbnails - between file list (tiny thumbs like I have) and a grid display (like my 'Photos', but still inside the shared folder.)

I can get larger thumbnails if I go to "Photos" but there are several problems that make this NOT the solution to the problem:

a) I wish to be able to see the thumbnails INSIDE the folder in question - and not have to go to "photos" because this displays a mix of all my pictures and not just the ones in the shared folder in question.

b) "Photos" displays the photos in reverse order which is, well, stupid. While I'm asking questions, how do I change how the pictures in "Photos" display - ie how do I make them display in increasing order instead of the reverse?

Thanks.

YES WE ARE STILL HAVING ISSUES!! THUMBNAILS ARE STILL TOO SMALL

everyone who needs larger thumbnails search for "large thumbnail" in the forums and then upvote every single comment on every single thread and maybe they will pay attention to this topic!!!

an option for larger image views within the folder view is sincerely needed!

I seriously can't see my files with the tiny thumbnails. I have a paid account. Thinking I need to drop DropBox all together if this doesn't get fixed.

I agree.

Hey Dropbox.

My first post on this was over a year ago (14.5 months to be slightly more precise). I've never had a response, nor has anyone that has posted following me.

Does anyone from Dropbox even read these discussions? What happened to 'Ed, the Dropboxer'?

No doubt you'd agree, this has gotten to be quite ridiculous.

Hello? Dropbox? Anyone home?

I've just upgraded to the paid version ans want to sort/delete photos and i'm looking everywhere for the button to change view size but it seems according to this thread that you cannot?

I CANNOT BELIEVE It!!! I haven't come across this situation with any other program.

Dropbox is great overall but this is a HUGE LET DOWN making Dropbox just a storage facility but not a file management system which it could so easily be.

I really can't believe it, it's just so stupid.
