    Yes you can. The trick is to use an app like QuickOfficeHD that has native Dropbox support so that you do not need to use the Open In... function from the Dropbox app. When you open and save directly to and from the Dropbox folder within QuickOffice, the documents are updated automatically.

    Cheers! I have enabled open office to accept the service from dropbox, all fine can see doc but can't seem to edit it. I have missed a setting? Checked not read only
