Please don't use dropbox for attachments unless you intend to keep the

The GUI doesn't have this option. Just like it doesn't have 99% of the
options available on the command line.

You can use the command line, or stick the options in your per-user
xpra.conf. ie:
echo "ssh=ssh -x -i /path/to/keyfile" >> ~/.xpra/xpra.conf
