BibTeX libratry linking problem

I have my bibtex library stored on Dropbox (file name: references.bib). When i try to link to that library, it says "Waiting" under the file icon and the circling round indicator is on and it keeps going for a long time -- now it has been over an hour. I suspect I am doing something wrong. The file is perhaps a bit on the large side (~20MB) but I suspect it should not take this long.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.


  • We may need a fuller description of what you are trying to do. What software application(s) are you using?

  • A screencast explanation might help. :)

  • I was just about to get a screenshot and post it and then thought I should restart the iPad. And lo and behold it worked after the restart. I should have thought about it earlier. Thanks for jumping in to help.
