    Good Morning
    In the iWorks app there is the option to add dropbox to the document picker.
    However, I have enabled it under the document picker more option but dropbox doesn't appear to link
    I am running iOS 8.1 and the latest dropbox
    Has anyone gotten this to work?

    Apple's Document Picker extension allows four different actions: import/export/open/move

    Dropbox currently only implements import/export, while iWork only seems to work with open/move. See https://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=122005 for more info.

    So, until Dropbox updates their app, it doesn't seem possible.

    This all seems rather overly complicated to me. During the last event, there was a screenshot in Craig's presentation that clearly showed Dropbox as a source available to Pages.

    I agree and it sounds like dropbox is the issue
    I don't like using the Dropbox open in feature to get a doc into pages or numbers. Maybe I will start using icloud more.

    If only something in ios open os x TextEdit docs I'd be set :)
