Ok, you need need to navigate

Ok, you need need to navigate to the Caustic song folder ( I presume you are talking about on your phone ) select the song you want to send, then in the options click share, and then a list of apps will pop up, then just hit on the Dropbox

Hmm, ok, so I take it these steps work. Navigate through the phone's folder structure to get to the Caustic folder. Drill down to the Caustic song folder, and select the song you want to share. So when you click on the Options menu there is no share. Do you see a symbol which looks like 3 dots, or something similar? This is the share symbol

You do have to have a Dropbox

You do have to have a Dropbox account first, though, don't you? and app on phone.

Yes pretty much, I was

Yes pretty much, I was assuming that Aphyllix had that fixed up, and it reads to me that he can't see the share, if he didn't have dropbox set up, he should still be able to see share or the share symbol...hmm

Maybe we should be more

Maybe we should be more explicit and point the finger on the fact that : when Andy (Wellsley) says "navigate to the Caustic song folder", he means, using your phone's explorer.. Not using Caustic "load file" browser..

Uploading a file to dropbox is as simple, and similar, to sending a picture to a friend.. The same "share" procedure.. But you can't do it "inside" Caustic.. You must do it "inside" your phone's Explorer..

That is a good point, to just

That is a good point, to just reiterate that this must be done through the phone's own filing system, and not through the Caustic App. Once again I presumed the above user would know and understand the difference, appollogies for not making it clear, but thanks Thierry for explaining the difference, hopefully that should do the trick

Thanks, but, how to I get to

Thanks, but, how to I get to the phones files? I'm on IOS 9.0 (My phone "Can't Handle" IOS 10), and I've never really known how to get in the files (preferably not using jailbreak or other probably-illegal hacks)

In iOS use the free app

In iOS use the free app Documents by Readdle and the built-in FTP server in Caustic. Documents will give you access to all of the Caustic folders and act as a gateway between Caustic and Dropbox or any other cloud storage.

It's in advanced settings. I don't have Caustic on my iPad right now or I'd send a screenshot. Check out the Caustic videos on YouTube.
