InDesign place files from Dropbox

Nov 25, 2013 12:10 PM

Tags: #file #indesign #dropbox #cc #mavericks #open-dialog

I have updated to Mavericks and have also the newest version of Dropbox.

However, I simply cannot place documents (PSDs, JPGs etc.) from Dropbox into an InDesign CC Document.

I can only drag and drop files from finder. The saved files (for example from Photoshop)

are there, but they are simply not shown in the place dialog in InDesign. When I save the files at the hard disk

everything works fine.

 

Any solutions?

    Dropbox files are on your harddrive or should be if you've synched those

    folders to your computer.

     

    I work almost exclusively in a dropbox folder and have had no issues

    doing so.

     

    Can you give us more specific info on this?

    You're putting these JPGs into a Dropbox folder on your local hard drive?

    Can you open them from other apps such as Photoshop?

    When you got File>Place is the drop down list set to "Importable Files" or "All Files"

     

    or is it set to something else, like PDF only.

    That's a Windows only thing, Eugene.

     

    This is very strange. About the only thing I can think to do is trash

    your preferences and see if that shakes things up a bit.
