I have an iPad Pro 11" iOS 12.1.1 and iPhone XS max iOS 12.1.2 and Dropbox version 124.2.2. I am trying to use the iOS Files app. When I select Dropbox in Browse view I am presented with an Authentication screen. I click Authenticate and I get the following error message on my iPad > Internal Error - Couldn't communicate with Helper application and and when I click Authenticate on my iPhone the Files app crashes. Is th is a Dropbox issue or Apple Files app issue?

Jay, Thanks for responding. This is very frustrating. I explained the issue and I provided steps to reproduce. This has happened before. I requested - please reread my initial issue. Very frustrating. I will pursue a non dropbox workaround. Pete

I need help. I submitted a support issue and the person assigned to it is incompetent. How do I get this issue assigned to someone who has a pulse?

Hi Pete, I hope my email finds you well. Thank you for getting back to me with that requested screenshot. After further investigating the issue at hand, it has come to my attention that the issue that you have in relation to recognition of your Smart Keyboard with entering a password into Dropbox is either a network or device issue. I understand that you have access to use the keyboard with other applications as you did mention this in your initial email, but from the screenshot you had sent I cannot see a connected device in the Bluetooth bar on your screen, and must inform you to take a look at the device settings and clarify that Dropbox is enabled for use. Furthermore, you can try and use a different network to see if that works out for you either, but due to the fact that this issue is not Dropbox related, I cannot offer precise troubleshooting steps, but merely suggestions to try and help you solve your issue. I hope that this helped, and if you have anymore Dropbox questions, feel free to email in! Regards, Jake

In order to open these docs I need to enter a password. However, I can't enter a password from the smart keyboard.

This is a Dropbox issue because smart keyboard works with all other apps. >

I would assert that the reason there are no changelogs is not a development decision but a marketing decision. I would recommend that NOBODY download and test beta releases thus providing ZERO feedback.
