Oh yes, revelation:  Dropbox sent me an email with the link I can copy into emails to others.

When I point to a file or folder and open the context menu, there is no choice L.  Get error sound.  There is a choice "send with transfer" which brings up a dropbox dialog.  I made that one work once but I don't know what I did.  Can't make it work again.

I select the file I want to share,
Open the context menu and press  the letter "l".
Then I pastethat   link into  a email message.
Lastly, I go to the end of the link, backspace once to remove the zero at the end of the file name and   press the number 1 key.
With a 1 at the end of the file name, instead of a zero,  the recipient just has to click on the link and the file will download automaticly.

Subject: [TechTalk] sharing a link to a dropbox file

Hi all,


How do I share a link to a file that I put in my dropbox? I highlighted the file and hit the context key but none of the options mentioned anything about copying a link to the clipboard. I'm pretty sure that's how I did it in the past.


Thanks.
