yes but to share any file as a link (which is only way to share read only) i have to put them all in the Public folder, right? that means anyone who guesses it, gets it. that i dont like.
of course i guess i could save them all as PDFs & just share other folders ... no that wont work either b/c the full sharing = add/remove the files too. i dont think dropbox has a view only sharing option for a file or folder. its all or nothing unless u use the link feature but that makes it open to anyone who guesses the link. their own site warns about that.
crazy that gdrive didnt have a linux version already. sigh.
