A little help please

Have some pdf files in Dropbox and am trying to use 'open with' on iPad (8.1.1) to get them into handbase.
They will not come down. Tried reinstalling handbase app and also putting replacement files back up into
Dropbox but to no avail. Anyone with some ideas as to what I am doing wrong.

Thanks for your post. Something for you to try- double click the home button on the iPad and find and close HanDBase if it's already open. Now try the Open in.. in Dropbox again. Does it now work? If not, please describe what happens (ie, do you not see a HanDBase choice, do you see one but it does nothing when you tap it, etc).

Thanks in advance.

Just out of curiosity: What would you be able to do with a PDF file in HanDBase?

I think Tim made a typo, referring to PDB files as PDF, mistakenly. PDF files cannot actually be integrated with HanDBase databases at this time.
Kind Regards,
