Dropbox integration allows you to connect to your cloud storage to view, modify & save the files directly from within Xodo PDF Studio. Once done you can save it back to the Dropbox if needed.

Note: A Dropbox account is required. Files are not edited directly on the server but instead a temporary local file is stored during editing. Once saved, the file is sent back to the server and the temp file is removed.
