Errors saving when documents stored in Dropbox

When my documents are stored in dropbox, almost every time I save or try to exit, I get "Error saving document 'Name' to 'filepath'. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Seems like Royal TS changes the file several times while saving, without holding the file open, so dropbox tries syncing it and the the save fails.

The worst part is the only way I can actually exit Royal TS is by killing it in task manager, because clicking cancel to that error cancels closing it.

Hi Grant,

Can you please let me know if this helps in your case? Thanks!

Thank you! Turning off backups seems to have fixed it, no more errors while saving!
