    I can access files on my iPad that I placed in Dropbox on my Mac, but how can I edit those files with my iPad and sync the edits via Dropbox?

    I've been wondering this myself. I have a Word doc which is a holiday ideas/plans/packing list combination. I would like to be able to open it through Dropbox on my PC, iPad and Android phone, make any amendments and additions and then save it back to Dropbox. Is this possible please?

    Try Documents To Go. I just started using it, and I think it might be just what you're looking for.

    But can you then send it back to Dropbox from Quickoffice when you have finished editing?

    In quickoffice pro, there is a link with dropbox. You actually open it from dropbox with quickoffice allowing changes and the ability to save the changes.
