Word processor with dropbox

New member | Level 2

I've been using an old version of Microsoft Word, saving my docs to Dropbox automatically. Software has moved on so much in the meantime but now that i have a new laptop i'd like to download a free open source writer that will let me follow my old habits. as i understand it google docs uploads to its own cloud. i want to write on a programme that lets me stick to my existing files in dropbox. Sorry if this sounds simple-minded.

Re: Word processor with dropbox


Hey @Elsie2, thanks for checking in with us on the Dropbox Community!

You can continue to work with Microsoft Office and save your files to your Dropbox account, but if you're looking for another third party app, there's not much I can suggest. 

You can in the meantime have a look here at our current integrations. 

I'll also leave this thread open in case any other users have any recommendations. 

Let me know if you have any other questions!
