Comic Life 3 for iOS: How do I import files from Dropbox? The old method of clicking the + icon only shows iTunes and WebDAV options.

That is correct, the new way you have to do it is through the Dropbox app on your iPhone or iPad (device).
  1. Launch the Dropbox app on your device.
  2. Either navigate or search for your Comic Life file. (either a .cl2arc or .comiclife* file).
  3. Once found, click on the filename and then click the Action icon (square with upwards pointing arrow) then select Open In... 
  4. Finally, choose "Open in Comic Life 3" and your comic will be imported.

Please note: the file may fail to import if you are not on one of the Collections screen view mode (i.e., My Comics) in Comic Life 3 for iOS before performing the "Open in Comic Life 3" action in the Dropbox app.

* If your file is coming from Comic Life 3 for Mac, the file needs to be saved in the default save method.
If you have changed to "Save as package" in Comic Life > Preferences... then it will not work.
So go into Comic Life > Preferences... > and make sure "Save as package" does not have a tick placed next to it.
