2 problems with offline use on Android

I use Mindjet for Android on phone (Droid X) & table (Iconia A200) and love it... normally.

Some other notes...
- I store all maps in Dropbox.
- I have the local storage tab and Connect tab disabled on both devices.
- I have tried to fix my problem with the "wifi sync" button checked and unchecked.
- I do most of my map modifying on my desktop PC (MindManager 2012, with the lastest update as of today)
- both Android app instances have the most recent update of Mindjet for Android

Here are the two problems:
1. On both devices, I change my mindmap folder of Dropbox to "cache for offline" use. But then I will come back later (at seemingly random times) and find that the setting has slipped back to no local caching.

2. When I try to pull up a map on the tablet and am not within wifi range, the mindjet dropbox folder will spin and spin but no files will come up.

Note this is a different problem than was experienced in this helpful thread: https://community.mindjet.com/mindjet....

And another note: after the recent updates from Mindjet and Dropbox, I have given up trying to open files from the Dropbox folder and now exclusively open from the MIndjet app.

I'd love some help. Thanks to anyone with some ideas.

Hi Jon,

We have heard another report of issue #1--I'm going to ask the QE team to see if they can reproduce it

For #2, the newest update--2.1-- which posted the day before yesterday, should resolve this problem. It should also resolve the problem of not being able to launch maps outside of the Mindjet app--we had a compatibility issue such that when trying to launch a map via Dropbox, or an email attachment, the Android OS wouldn't recognize the app was installed. I encourage to install the latest update, it really does have some substantive fixes in it, including performance enhancements when switching from the mapping canvas back to the file system. Thanks.
