Export from Dropbox to Books on iPad

Explorer | Level 3

On my iPad, I have routinely exported files in Dropbox to Books (iBooks) to read offline.  In iOS 13.3, Books is no longer an export option.  The only option I see is to open in Acrobat.  How can I export to Books?

Hey there @AlanHartley, thanks for reaching out to us here!

When you tap the export option, from the app options along the top of the pop up please scroll to the right and tap on "More".

From here, do you see an option to "Copy to Books"?

If not, can you just makes sure that you have the most up to date versions of the Dropbox mobile app and the Books app?

Also, please let me know what file type you're trying to export (eg. PDF).

Let me know what you find!

Thanks, Daphne!  You solved it.  I updated the Dropbox app and, presto, all of my Export --> More options reappeared.  I think the problem was a disconnect between the newest iOS and an older version of Dropbox.
