This is an addon for Simple Notepad (v1.6.4c+).

- Auto-uploads notes/checklists to your Dropbox account (Apps/simplenotepad) when you end editing.
- Syncs (pull) notes/checklists with Dropbox(Apps/simplenotepad) - in note/checklist, menu > More > Sync with Dropbox
- Imports text files as notes/checklists from Dropbox (Apps/simplenotepad) - menu > Settings/Toos > Tools > Import from Dropbox

[IMPORTANT] This addon doesn't maintain the revision information. Upload always overwrites Dropbox data and sync always overwrites local data. File encoding must be UTF-8.

How to setup:

[RECOMMENDED if you have the official Dropbox app installed and logged-in]
1. Install the add-on.
2. Open Simple Notepad and go to menu -> Settings/Tools -> Tools -> Import from Dropbox. You will be asked to give permission (1st screenshot). Just hit "Allow". You may have to repeat this step till Dropbox stops asking for the permission.

[if you DON'T have the official Dropbox app installed]
1. Install the add-on.
2. Open Simple Notepad and go to menu -> Settings/Tools -> Tools -> Import from Dropbox. Log in to your Dropbox account when the browser opens (2nd screenshot).
3. When you're asked to give permission (3rd screenshot), hit "Allow". Nothing happens, just dismiss the browser. You may have to repeat this step till Dropbox stops asking for the permission.

To test if the add-on is working or not, try this:
1. Open an existing note/checklist.
2. Exit the note/checklist.
3. Go to menu -> Settings/Tools -> Tools -> Import from Dropbox. You should see the note you just edited in the list. If you don't see it, try again (there might be some upload lag).

    Keeps overwriting newer local version with old from dropbox. Same problem on two devices.

    Sometimes this syncs a dropbox copy over a much newer live version in simple notes. This is very annoying. I just lost a bunch of text. If you cannot fix bug then please at least check if note being overwritten is bigger and offer an option to cancel

    Auto-upload to dropbox doesnt work, the option is checked. Sync Overwrites local note only. ★ "SYNC" SHOULD BE CALLED "COPY" OR "IMPORT" FOR BETTER USER UNDERSTANDING
