Notebooks allows you to selectively disable Dropbox sync for books or individual documents. You exclude an item from sync by turning off the Sync Dropbox switch in its info.

A possible scenario is when you have a huge collection of documents on Dropbox which you do not want to have in Notebooks on your iPad or iPhone. The best way to achieve that is this:

  • Disable automatic Dropbox sync in Notebooks.
  • Create a book in the location and with the title of the Dropbox folder you do not want to sync.
  • Open the book’s info and turn off Sync Dropbox.
  • Now you can enable Dropbox sync again.

From now on, manual and automatic Dropbox sync will ignore this book and its contents.
