File change notifications from Dropbox

Version control pane showing
file change notifications from Dropbox
If you set up Dropbox Sync for your project, you will recieve notifications when files are changed on Dropbox externally. For instance, you may upload a new version of the paper text to Dropbox through their web interface or edit files on Dropbox folder mounted to your computer using your favorite text editor.

Notifications are shown in the Version contol pane. Red dot indicates that there are some changes and the list of changed files is shown in the Cloud Storage Sync section.

Pay attention that you may need to re-authorize to Dropbox in the settings page to switch notifications on.
