This is probably for people with some knowledge of FrameMaker internals...

My clients have persistent issues saving FrameMaker binary files to Dropbox-synced filesystems (even local filesystems that are synced to Dropbox). FrameMaker presents a warning that it cannot save the file, and moves the file to a new copy with a random three-character extension.

Best workaround is to turn off Dropbox syncing when working with FrameMaker.

Question: Does the FrameMaker "Dropbox" feature (File>Utilities>Save to Dropbox folder) do anything special to mitigate this issue?
