What's new in Dropbox - 5th Edition

What's new in Dropbox - 5th Edition

Ed
Dropboxer

Hi all

 

Welcome to another edition of our 'What's New in Dropbox'. If you missed any previous edition, you can read them all here

 

The goal of this edition is to give you a bit more insights on what's happening in Dropbox and Dropbox Paper. You're welcome to add comments and feedback!

 

Thanks and have a great read 🙂

Desktop IPv6

The Dropbox application now supports connecting on networks that utilize IPv6 addressing. Should your internal network operate with IPv6 addresses then the desktop application will recognize this and operate within this environment. If, for any reason, the network were to change to using IPv4 addressing then we would continue to operate.
 
In the event that you are running a dual-stack IP implementation and both IPv6 and IPv4 are available, Dropbox will take the IPv6 network by default but may take IPv4 in situations where IPv6 addresses are slow to resolve. 
 

Drag and Drop on Paper

We’ve recently released drag and drop features for columns and rows in Paper tables. Now you can reorganize your tables without having to copy/paste the content!  

Raw photo previews

Dropbox now previews raw photos on the web, iOS, and Android apps. We support previews for multiple file type extensions. You can see the full list here. There are some exceptions to which RAW file extensions are supported, and we will share more updates on this once we have more information. 
 

New Dropbox web with enhanced UI

To make dropbox.com even better and easier to use, we’re rolling out an updated design. A few things have changed with the redesigned version of dropbox.com. You can read them all in details on our Help Center:

 

Hope you enjoyed it!

With this new Dropbox web layout, the column on the right with the Share folder, Upload Files options takes away a lot of screen space. Now if you have files with long names, there is no way to view the whole name, and there is a huge column of blank space on the right. What a poor design change.

 

And you can no longer see the file size for each file, please add that feature back, that is very important!! How do I see the file size now??

I have to say that the changes look nice, but in the recent tab the updates have gone backwards as least as far as it applies to my work.  I need to have more, not less options to search for recent changes, particularly by others with access to my files.  IT was difficult before, not it is impossible.  Unless I am missing something.

The new Dropbox is awful. Why do I have to keep checking and unchecking folders every time I want to edit or do anything with files in the online version? It's a waste of time and serves no purpose.

Sorry if I missed it, but cannot find the Events menu any more. It is the absolute must have feature for me. Do you plan to reintroduce it?

Thanks
