    Not sure what your question means.

    Why do you want to do this?

    You can create a symlink to your Documents folder in Dropbox

    Read option 2 of Synchronizing Existing Folders and Files

    As explained above. Simply create a symlink to your Documents folder.

    Are you referring to https://www.dropbox.com/ or to the Drop Box folder that is part of OS X? Your original post contains both "drop box" and "dropbox".

    You could simply move your Dropbox folder to within your Documents folder. Do this from from Drobox preferences and not by dragging the folder.

    You can also then change your Finder preferences so that new Finder windows open Dropbox instead of Documents.
