Unable to save on Google Pixel XL - invalid parameter error

Helpful | Level 5
Recently switched to Google Pixel XL phone and the Dropbox app (android) keep giving this error whenever i edit a text file and try to save it:

"Invalid parameter: /filecache/<a bunch of numbers and letters>.txt (FILE)"

I have tried clearing cache/data and even uninstall and reinstall the app to no avail. Please help!

Is this from the official Dropbox app from the AppStore?

Ok so i find out that the default app i was using to edit text files was having this issue; once changed to dropbox file editor, it worked fine. The same app worked on other phones flawlessly though (Solid Explorer)
