    What's the little icon between the rubbish bin and the strange symbol with the plus sign on the top of the page?

    Looks like a rectangle with a downward arrow.

    I can't figure out what you are looking at; app, browser, site, etc. Nothing I check seems to fit.

    Perhaps a screenshot? The Annotable app is great for pointing out things and hiding private stuff. Or you can do basic annotation on pictures in the Photos app.

    In general, boxes with arrows in or out of them usually offer sharing, exporting, or saving options. But it varies a lot app from app. For example, Apple's standard share sheet is usually represented by a square with an arrow rising from it.

    If you tap that icon, your file will be available offline.

    Ahhh! I didn't actually select a file when looking at the DropBox app, so I did not see that group of icons. Just goes to show that even when you think you know what you're doing, there's always a bit more doing than you know. :oops:

    TP - did the same myself last night - :D Opened Dropbox on my iPad and saw nothing but my files on the left side of the app - did not think to 'open something' - DUH! Thus, did not respond but was thinking that a screen capture would help (which would have been true!) - Dave :)

    I took a couple of screen shots and the icons changed... sounds strange I know but I have a witness... LOL.
    So I thought, they will know what I'm talking about... and sure enough somebody did. ;)

    The third time it came out OK. :rolleyes:
