    I'm noticing that when I upload a file using the standard file uploader, it shows up in my dropbox fine. But when I use the image uploader preview (or the drag and drop file uploader), the files (images) don't show up. They are part of the pdf that shows up, but they aren't separate image files. Any suggestions?

    (I'm using the Chome OS on my Chromebook, if that matters)

    To be able to receive files at Dropbox you will need to use standard File Upload tool.

    That tool also supports the drag and drop functionality when switched into 'Allow Multiple' mode.

    The widget fields work a bit differently compared to the native fields, so unfortunately, upload widgets are not currently integrated with the Dropbox.

    I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread to see if we can improve the upload widgets integration with Dropbox at some point. There is no ETA, but we will let you know if we have any updates.

    I just noticed the drag and drop option with the standard file upload. It's great. Thanks.
