Where EXACTLY is the Marvin 3 sync file in Dropbox?

I have linked Dropbox and got sync set up in Marvin 3, and it works great.

I'd like to know exactly where the Marvin 3 sandbox file is, but I cannot find it anywhere in my Dropbox. My Dropbox is practically empty, so I'm surprised I can't see it anywhere. It's not in the Apps folder so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Where the heck is it?

I think I figured out the issue. Marvin 2 used Dropbox for its sync location, but Marvin 3 uses iCloud for this. I think, anyway.

Yep, this. Marvin 3 sync is iCloud-based. Probably easier for majority of Apple users since that eliminates the need to sign up for a separate Dropbox account.

Iirc, Dropbox changed its API in 2017 breaking compatibility in older apps so I'm surprised people can still use syncing via Dropbox in Marvin 2.

I seem to recall that's why I switched from Marvin 2 to Marvin 3 (because the Dropbox integration was broken).

I broke my iPad Pro a month ago. My permanent replacement hasn't come in, so I haven't been able to access my iCloud files. Will all my Marvin 3 books along with their highlights and annotations be accessible once again? I backed my iPad regularly to the cloud, but I didn't use any in-app backup methods for Marvin3 specifically. I can access my "files" folder from my iPhone, but I don't see anything there.

iCloud backup is actually more complete than in-app Marvin backup. Marvin in-app backup only restores database, books, annotations, etc. iCloud backup restores pretty much everything including settings.
