I tried "Dropbox Connection" option in the Sync menu, and authorized Moneydance to connect my Dropbox. However I noticed that the Moneydance app has requested access to the entire contents of Dropbox and does not seem to offer the option to be restricted to one folder. Is there a way to restrict into Moneydance to one Dropbox folder?

I then went to Dropbox web site and un-authorized the Moneydance app for Dropbox. I then had a problem repeatedly where Moneydance hangs as soon as I clicked the "Sync..." menu item in Moneydance.

Fortunately I had made a backup copy of my Moneydance database before these experiments, so I could restore the original database, and then the Sync... menu didn't hang and I was back to the "Dropbox Folder" mode, where I will stay for now.
