I'm taking screenshots, but they're not appearing in Shotty. How do i fix this?

Do you have Dropbox configured to "Share screenshots using Dropbox"Turning on this setting in Dropbox causes Dropbox to quickly move your screenshots out of the designated folder and into the "Screenshots" folder in Dropbox before Shotty is able to detect them. Don't worry, we love Dropbox too, and there are a few ways to solve this issue:

Option 1: Give Shotty permission to access your 'Screenshots' folder in Dropbox.

In Shotty, click on the gear icon to open Preferences. Under preferences click "Allow" on the tile that says "Do you use Dropbox screenshot syncing?"

Option 2: Turn off "Share screenshots using Dropbox" in Dropbox's Preferences.

This will turn off the feature in Dropbox that automatically moves your screenshots into Dropbox. Dropbox will no longer automatically create links to your screenshots when this setting is turned off. If you'd like to continue using this feature in Dropbox, we'd recommend going with Option 1.
