Dropbox on Android suddenly unable to open Text / .MD file

Dropbox on Android suddenly unable to open Text / .MD file

Helpful | Level 5

I ve a shared folder on my android 11 (kernel 4.4.177) in there ive a text file FILE.txt , which i renamed File.MD (markdown) so i can share with my usual note editor on MAC. it has been working perfectly for months. The first time i opened it, i was asked the default app, i set Dropbox and everything was fine.

 

then suddently a week or so ago, when i click on the file it just open "my garmin connect"  which is not a text editor. I checked and the setting was "open with dropbox" - i deleted the preferred APP, hoping I would have been asked again ... to no avail.

if i go to default app there are none now

dropbox version on Android is 320.2.10

 

Can you help me?

 

Thanks

 

Manolo

This isn't helpful. You merge me into a thread with 50 replies, most of which are DB staff saying how important this issue is, that they're aware of it, and yet it's a thread from 8 months ago with no resolution. So much for importance or doing something about it. And I'm not the only one. You (or some DB staff) merged others into this and also complained that's the only help they get.

IF there's a solution why not simply reply to the original post (meaning my original or the others so merged) with a link to the answer. Instead, I have to scroll through 50 replies in hopes of finding the answer that, if there is one, would be a lot easier to just point that ONE answer out. Instead, now you've dropped me here, there are 51 comments. 

 

Customer service is a lost art. I have to wonder, due to the lack of usefulness, if all these mergings/oh-it's-so-important-to-us's are just autobots.

 

Wow.
