Use Special Mac and PC Features

Beyond the primary uses for the Mac and PC Dropbox app (such as syncing, sharing, and Camera Upload—all discussed elsewhere in this book), a number of special features have appeared that will appeal to certain users.

In this chapter, I describe the Dropbox badge (for Microsoft Office users) and integration with Adobe’s Acrobat products. Also, in Manage Desktop Notifications, I cover desktop notifications, which are perhaps less special (in that they’ve been around for quite some time) but still worth knowing about—especially if you find them excessively intrusive or annoying.

Later in the chapter, I talk about Finder integration for OS X users in Use or Disable OS X Finder Integration.
