Add Sync Status indication for sync via Dropbox Connection

I am using Dropbox Connection to keep MD sync'ed on my iMac while i do most of my MD work on my MacBookPro. When i open MD on iMac (after several days/weeks of not using it), I have to wait quite a while to let it sync, even though I have an 800+ Gbps Internet connection in my place. My only way to tell that sync is complete is by seeing older Reminders going away, or account values showing values which I recognize as being current...
It would be very nice to have a sync status message in the Status line at the bottom of the MD window, just as we see when we download transactions.

    There are already messages that pop up in the status bar when syncing is complete & when syncing & saving are taking place, they appear to the right of the 3 vertical lines.

    1. Finished syncing data
    2. Finished writing sync data
    3. Finished saving data

    Not sure, other than some sort of progress bar, you are requesting,

    Jeff, I see these sync messages when I use MD on my MacBook Pro and perform Downloads for accounts, but not on my iMac which syncs via Dropbox Connection.
    (btw, my internet connection is obviously 800+ Mbps, not Gbps)

    My iMac syncs with DropBox and definitely shows the sync messages in the status bar. Maybe the very bottom of your MD window is hidden?

    No, It is not hidden. It shows status messages when downloading accounts, but:
    For example, I am not using MD on iMac for 2 weeks, but I keep my accounts and spending up-to-date daily on my MacBookPro. Now I start up MD on iMac but do not see a message in the status bar, while I can see that it is updating for several minutes, like for example the overdue Reminders disappear one by one, totals in Bank and Inv Accounts on Home Screen update one by one - all quite slowly. but no message about ongoing updating in the Status line while it does this.
