    I posted this and then realised that I had only read the last query on page 1 of the thread. Ah well to hasty too help isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Peter which app are you trying to sync from as it will need to support copying back to dropbox.
    If it supports WebDAV then Dropdav will let you write back to dropbox.

    Don't expect a smooth transition from PowerPoint to Keynote unless your slides are nothing but text. Even with text Keynote made a mess of a two-level bulleted list. It also misplaces figures that I carefully placed beside the relevant points. If you prepare the initial presentation in Keynote you can get an excellent result -- it's the compatibility that never works smoothly across platforms.

    Did you ever get an answer to your question about using DropBox to pass text between Apps?
    How do you tell e.g. Pages to upload to Dropbox and vice versa? I can't get Pages, Keynote etc to send anywhere other than iTunes on my desktop via Sync. May be missing something simple.

    GoodReader had a great update this morning that addresses some questions in this thread.

    A great product just got better.

    Changes doesn´t “re-sync†to the dropbox

    Hi, Learned how to 2-way sync pdf-files between dropbox and PDF Expert.
    But the changes – highlighting, underlining - I done on my iPad will not shows on the file that is â€re-synced†to dropbox.
    Shouldn’t it?

    Yes it should.

    The fact it doesn't is the reason I use iAnnotate which does.
    First download using iAnnotate, markup, sync back to DropBox using iAnnotate to do file transfer for you.
    View file in Windows, annotations are there,
    view file on Mac, annotations are there, that is all I want bi directional syncing of annotated PDFs.
