Bug in iOS file multiselect

 I believe I found a bug on the iOS dropbox app. 

 

 In the files tab select multiple photos ( three dots menu, tap "select", tap on multiple photos to select them).

 

 Tap "move". Tap "select different folder". 

 

Say, you just realized, that you selected one photo which you do not want to move so you tap "cancel" and "cancel" again.

 

 Now you should be able to deselect one photo and then move all the rest. Instead you will find the app in a mode, in which you can still select and deselect photos, but the actions "delete", "copy", "move"  have disappeared.

 

You now have to cancel the whole selection process  and start all over again.

Re: Bug in iOS file multiselect

@Koenono, welcome to our forum! 

Hey, I have just tried to duplicate this on our iPhone 6 Plus, and did not get the same result as you described (awesome step-by-step, by the way!). I did this twice, and both times I still had the options at the bottom: Delete Copy Move. 

Our device is on Dropbox app version 58.2.4, with iOS version 10.3.2. Can you check to see what versions you’re running, and let me know?
 
Thanks, and have a great week slightly smiling face

Hi @Sanchez,

 

thanks for your picking this up.

 

I can only reproduce this Bug on the iPad not on the iPhone. There I am running Dropbox 58.2.4 on iOS 10.3.2

 

does this help?

 

cheers

Re: Bug in iOS file multiselect

Hey @Koenono

Thanks for clarifying. I have just tested this out on our 10.3.1 iPad, running our 58.2.4, and did not have the issue. We have a newer release available, v60.2. Mind giving this a try, and letting me know? 

Thanks, and have a great weekend smiling face with sunglasses

Re: Bug in iOS file multiselect

Hi,

I just updated to 60.2.4 and still have the problem. If you send me an email adress, I can send you a Video of the bug (it will show some pictures of mine, so I do not want it on the Internet).

Note that this only happens, when in the "files" mode, not in the "photos" mode.

The bug seems to happen, when I tap on "select different folder". In that moment the menu with "delete", "copy", "move" disappears and gets replaced with the main menu.
