What can be wrong since my Rootsmagic revisions/additions, after being updated on my desktop computer, are not being updated on Dropbox.

If you mean that you have used the File > Save to Dropbox function and the mobile RM app is not being updated, it is because Dropbox has changed its behaviour in response to that process. It no longer allows the cloud file to be overwritten and appends a serial number to the name of the fresh upload. Have a look at your Dropbox folder.


You can, however, copy your database file to the local Dropbox folder on your computer, overwriting the version there, and that will replace the cloud copy.
