Hi! I had to create a new Dropbox account and I'd like the Scriviner app to use this new one, but I can't figure out how to get the app to use a different Dropbox login. It just automatically syncs to the old one. Is it possible to change Dropbox accounts in the app?

I think you need to actively log out of the old Db account, which can be done from inside the Db app (under Account, at the bottom). In Scrivener you have to disconnect completely from the Dropbox syncing (under Edit and the gear wheel at the bottom in the Projects screen) and then re-connect to Dropbox and use the new account.
