I saw the thread on changing the location of Dropbox on iOS, but I can't figure out how to change the Dropbox ACCOUNT linked to my iOS Scrivener. I have two Dropbox accounts--one personal, one work. I want to change the location of my Scrivener files from one account to the other. But I can't see how to unlink the iOS app from the one account and then add it to another. Am I missing something obvious? Or is this not possible?

Thanks....

In Scrivener, unlink Dropbox.

Go to the Dropbox app on your iOS device.

Settings > sign out from the account you don't want to use.

Sign in to the account you do want to use.

Reconnect in Scrivener.

This is a limitation of Dropbox: one app, one device, one sign in at a time…unless you have a business account…

Or use shared folders…
