Description:
Drobpox is a very popular cloud storage service. Dropbox recently added a way to handle documents (Paper) that are beginning to be used as alternative cloud office suits.

Are you looking for full integration as LibreOffice Online (LOOL) provides? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZpYXUD1ZVM
Or do you just want to access the shared file via CMIS, which should also work. Remote files not only support GDrive, you can select a plenty of alternatives from the 'Type' dropdown.

This, but... Dropbox support CMIS? 
I have not found anything says that

So, use GDrive and other services via CMIS, FTP and WebDAV, however, Dropbox does not allow such connections and only offers an alternative method.

GDrive or work is being done with OneDrive make me think that is good idea to add popular services.

Thanks for clarification. I guess dropbox has means to deal with simple http connections (other cmis). But better the experts help in this case.
