[IDV #ONX-380426]: how to use Dropbox for my history, favorites, custom color tables, etc.


This sounds like a good idea. I would suggest accomplishing this with symbolic 
link from the file system. Also see the -userpath IDV command line option to 
change the location of the of the .unidata directory. There may be problems we 
have not anticipated, but it is still worth a shot.

On a somewhat related note, I wrote an IDV dropbox plugin 
https://github.com/julienchastang/idvbox that allows you to publish bundles to 
dropbox (just like you do with RAMADDA). If interested, I can give you more 

Best Wishes,
