Dropbox not updating files

After dealing with several other urgent family problems, I finally got back to looking for a solution to the Reunion touch problem described in my previous messages. I deleted the existing Reunion Touch family file (which had refused to update) from my i Pad. Checked that the Reunion file was still in the i Pad dropbox. Downloaded the file from the i Pad dropbox to Reunion Touch again. It seems that the file in the i Pad Dropbox had automatically updated all along, but the Reunion Touch file did not automatically update from it as I understood it would.

Im obviously doing something wrong but Ive run out of ideas. Thanks, Frank"Copied my Reunion family file from the i Mac to the i Pad via Dropbox with no problem." You should have Dropbox on the i Pad, then buy Reunion Touch (if not already).

Use the Dropbox's file on Reunion Touch."Copied my Reunion family file from the i Mac to the i Pad via Dropbox with no problem." You should have Dropbox on the i Pad, then buy Reunion Touch (if not already). Thanks, but that is exactly what I have and did to "copy" my family file from the Dropbox on the i Mac to Dropbox on my i Pad as described in my first paragraph.

Thanks When I open Sharing Status on the device (i Pad) there is no Reset button.

I think Sharing Status on the i Mac did have a Reset button which I pressed yesterday.

It is the only copy and there is ONLY an alias to it in my Documents/Reunion Files folder.

It would be simple to try deleting the alias if you think it might help.You do not want a copy of your family file in your Documents/Reunion Files folder.Hence, the reason for my reply -- just to make sure you're not doing that. I have MOVED my family file into the Dropbox folder.I have Reunion 11 (17,000 people) on my i Mac, Reunion Touch on my i Pad and Dropbox on both.My family file is in the Dropbox folder on the i Mac and I have an alias to it in my Reunion Files folder which I use to make any changes.My question is why don't *changes* to the former then automatically appear in the latter?
