Dropbox issue: TeXstudio cannot save tex files

Postby WanSuhana » Thu Nov 10, 2016 12:35 am

Hello everybody.

I have used my TeXstudio a few months ago & previously my works were running smoothly.
Suddenly, a few days ago, the TeXstudio having problem.

When I do editing my file, and then compile it, it doesn't acknowledge the new work I've added. If I try and edit what was previously compiling it doesn't recognize the changes but just compiles the old stuff. It's like it's 'stuck' on the old version. However, no error messages are appeared.

I trying so many time, an I found that, the results of my editing only can be appeared after I save the file before compile it. But, in order to save the file, I need to click the button save, for many times. And another thing is, when I save, there exist some files in the same folder (please find in the attachment).

I am really curious what happen to my TeXstudio. Do I have to reinstall the software?

Thank you in advance for your attention.

The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

I summarize what doncherry said (link is above):

It's a dropbox issue.

On way is not using dropbox and saving your file on your computer. You still could copy the files from and to the dropbox folder, just not directly compiling.

The other way: Downgrade to TeXstudio 2.10.8, it doesn't have this issue.
See also the bug report. I assume it will be fixed in a later version of TeXstudio.
