Unable to open Dropbox folders using "Open..."

I'm currently unable to open Dropbox folders using the "Open..." Files app integration. If I tap "Select", select a folder full of text files, and then tap "Open", I get an error dialog saying the following:

> The plug-in returned an error.


> The file doesn't exist.

> The operation couldn't be completed.

> (NSURLErrorDomain error 404.)

Is there no support for this? I was able to get a folder from "Working Copy" open in this manner, which is nice, but I would also love Dropbox support for this.

Hello, you can only select files from Dropbox, not folders. Selecting folders only works if the files in the providing app are stored locally - like in Working Copy.

To download entire folders into Textastic, you can use Textastic's built-in Dropbox support: https://www.textasticapp.com/v6/manual/lessons/How_do_I_access_files_in_my_Dropbox_account.html
