Hey @Idiotnerd

This sounds like it’s a function of the browser. I have just replicated this with Puffin, but using other browsers, I got different save options on every one! 

I don’t know if our team has any control over this, but I’d like to make them aware in any case. Can you tell me what version of iOS your device is on, and what version of our app and Puffin you’re using?

For Puffin I'm using version 5.2.2 and for IOS I'm using 10.0.1. Dropbox is 68.2


Hopefully this can be figured out soon, thanks!

It’s January 2019 on latest Puffin and it still doesn’t work on iOS12!

It never provides a path to save to within Dropbox. Puffin states the preferred save mode is Dropbox. Dropbox has Puffin as a linked app.

Save as should provide an option to save the file to Dropbox.

Send to would be ok though cumbersome.
