Connecting to Dropbox

You must have a Dropbox account. A free account is fine for this purpose.

First use the Import AC Charts button to establish a connection to your Dropbox.

Due to changes in the Dropbox api from Sept 2021 you may have to disconnect from Dropbox and then connect to Dropbox to (re)establish a connection more frequently than previously. Long-term Dropbox connections via AC are no longer allowed by Dropbox – this change was made to increases your Dropbox security. Once connected all AC Import/Export procedures should work correctly.

You may see that this:
