that's the way to do it. you select the file in your dropbox\public folder and press the alt+f key to bring up the files menu and down arrow to dropbox and press enter. arrow down to copy public link and then you can then paste the link in to an email message.

If anyone on the list has dropbox, can you tell me how to get the link to a file in the public folder? I tried highlighting the file, going to the dropbox submenu, and selecting the "copy public link" option, but this didn't work. In the documentation, they say to "right click" or "control/click" the file, but this didn't work either.

Can someone help?

Thank you.
