    Greetings
    How do I drop a Quickoffice Doc Into Dropbox in my iPad 4 send it to my imac, modify it on my iMac, then send it back to my ipad and open it back up in dropbox? I am running Lion and I just want the easiest way to do this because I OFTEN work on the same doc and need to send between my ipad and imac. Do I need to have Quickoffice on my iMac too? I also want to mention that I have MS Office 2011 on my iMac. God bless you if you can follow this! Me, I am a mite confused! Many thanks, :O)

    First off, get the free Dropbox App on both your Mac and your iPad. On your iPad you will need to set up Quickoffice to work with Dropbox like so.......

    When you place the file into Dropbox on your iPad it will magically appear in Dropbox on your Mac. On your Mac, you will be able to open the file and edit from MS Office.
