Marvin and dropbox

I just purchased and installed Marvin on my wife's new iPad Mini and wanted to load books on using dropbox. I currently have a huge collection of ebooks in Calibre and lately started to add a bunch of woodworking books for my persona use. In my dropbox I created a folder for my wife and I have several other folders that contain various epub books that are of no interest to my wife. I've started to upload books for my wife by placing them in the dropbox folder I created for her. When I have Marvin go to the dropbox I see all of the epub books. How can I get Marvin to look only in the folder I created for her?

Go to the settings in Marvin, to Services where you originally set up Dropbox connectivity, then tap "Tap here to set a custom search directory".

@visor - If you're referring to the place where Marvin stores location data (to sync locations), that folder is always <dropbox root>/Apps/com.marvinapp
