No way to select folder to save viewed PDF in, or to rename PDF before saving, in Android DropBox.

Level 2

So I've just moved from iOS (where such simple tasks were possible with Dropbox for iOS) to Android (a Pixel 2 - fully updated), and set DropBox as my PDF viewer, since that's where I save all my web receipts.

I tap on the PDF in Gmail app, it opens in Dropbox, my only option for saving is "Save to my Dropbox" at the bottom of the screen. I tap that. I'm taken to the very same seemingly randomly chosen folder every time - one nested three levels deep, for a certain collection of files), with no option to switch folders, only to "add" bottom right, or create a new folder top right.

Surely Dropbox for Android cannot be so profoundly poorly designed, that I must save a file to a random location before I can move or rename it? Right??? But it seems this is actually the case. I am stunned.

Hi there, you should be able to view the parent folders of the existing folder you’re in by swiping to the right, which will bring up those folders.
 
If you’re not experiencing this behavior, please let me know!
