Anyone found a Dropbox "open file" workaround?
I hate to bring this up again, but I have yet to find a solution, and was wondering if anyone has an elegant solution to this problem.

I love OO on the Mac, and the new iPad version looks nice, but I can't currently migrate my workflow away from Dropbox (nor do I have a reason to other than Omni's refusal to incorporate it.)

However, I find myself not using the desktop version as much since I can't get these files open from the Dropbox app on the iPad since they are package files (or something else) that won't allow me to open them in OO.

I would be happy to lose syncing, or emailing them back to myself or something so long as I could view my OO3 files on my iPad.

If people could reply with their workarounds to this problem, I would be grateful -- I have a new project starting that I will be using OO3 for, and would like to be able to view the outline on the iPad occasionally. I saw one posted below that had scripts for copying to webdav, but there must be a better way...

I realize this might all go away if iCloud is successful/incorporated/useful but I need a solution now.

Thanks so much for any help with this!

Me too - I love the iPad app, but find it much quicker to vlast an outline out on the mac, then refer to it off my iPad

it's relatively easy getting out, but getting in requires the iTunes sync. I tried WebDav, but can't get that sussed (it keeps zipping the file.

It's pretty frustrating!

I am using Otixo to provide a free WebDav into dropbox. So far it's working great.

I'm using DropDav to provide WebDAV access to my Dropbox for OO.
