    Daedalus Touch would be magnitudes more useful to me if I could import more than one folder deep from within my synced Dropbox folder. As far as I can tell, this impossible as of right now. Ideally, I could select any item nested to any degree of depth, and Daedalus Touch would intelligently sync changes made to wherever the file originated, but just being able to import them would be great, even if I can't save them to their original location. I understand this would raise questions for the UI, since "stacks" and "pages" are never on the same screen, but I don't see a problem in just making all folders visible on the stacks page in Daedalus Touch regardless of where the files are nested in other folders.

    Theoretically, this would work. But only for imports, as we won't add per-stack sync-folder selection due to usability issues. So stacks created in Daedalus would always sync to the first level of your selected sync-folder, which may not be what you expect, especially if you have lots of subfolders as means of organizing your work.

    Anyway, what we definiteley don't want is to have sync or other apps determine Daedalus' "file" system, so this functionality will very likely never happen. What will happen, though, is import of arbitrary folders, not just those in your selected sync location.

    That would still be great for my purposes. If I need a particular folder to have the most recent files (so that I am able to play nicely with other syncing apps and computer programs), I can just switch that folder to my sync folder for the time being, on a project by project basis. Thanks!

    (I would humbly propose, however, that anyone who is privy enough to use Dropbox at all probably wouldn't be confused by an option to have sync preferences on a stack by stack basis; that said, I'm not going to begrudge a philosophy of simplicity. Also, I hope it won't be out of place in this forum if I point out that if one MUST have an app that syncs to arbitrary, user defined Dropbox locations for each file, they should check out another great writing app called "Nebulous." it is, admittedly, a less intuitive interface though, and it is only for Dropbox, as far as I'm aware. Thanks again.)
