Love and Hate

I’ve been using Paper since Dropbox first released it. I’ve loved the simplicity of it, great interface, easy to share, etc. It’s great for documents I need to share with clients or keeping notes, and planning. I want to use this all the time, but sadly, there have been too many little bugs to use it for anything too serious. I have written project proposals in Paper in the past without much issue, but these days, a long document with copy, pasting and other editing, it’s super inconsistent and erratic. I would think that basic undo/redo would be a no-brainer but, unfortunately, it doesn’t work in Paper. I will have made 5 changes, hit undo, and it undoes something I did 8 steps ago. Content that I copied a while ago gets pasted randomly in the document, content shifts, I touch the screen to edit specific text and it jumps to the bottom of the document, it’s crazy and sometimes impossible to recover from. Too much time spent dealing with the bugs and not enough time just writing and knowing it’s reliable. Again, I want to love it and use it more, but I had to give up on the app with document I’m currently working on.

*The* Best Cloud Word Processing/Notetaking Application Available

Dropbox Paper is the most profound single productivity tool I’ve ever added to my life. It’s so incredibly rare to encounter software to which I would not recommend a single change! I’d managed to integrate it so seamlessly into my daily work since its launch that it hadn’t occurred to me for far too long to write a review.

I can’t stand clutter or Google properties, and Evernote has been showing its age for years, so I was extremely excited when Dropbox Paper was announced. I’ve used it heavily and almost daily since its release in both my writing job and elsewhere. You would not believe how handy it is to have a clean, smooth, and live-synced word entry space so close at hand. I don’t see much reason to complain about what it *can’t* do considering that the alternative clumsy, feature-pumped legacy notetaking services will always be available should you need them, but you won’t.

I can only hope that Dropbox won’t feel the need to add more features.

Very promising

Paper seems to have a lot of potential (and on my devices anyway, hasn't yet crashed), and it's great to have the potential for this kind of thing built into Dropbox too. That said, Paper has what's to me an annoying way of presenting folders and documents. As far as I can tell, it doesn't want to show you the actual folder structure that you've set up, it does that thing of showing a list of ALL your folders at one time, whether or not you've nested them inside each other, and it orders folders and/or documents by Recently Viewed -- with no option to have them displayed alphabetically by name instead. I hate that. My brain wants to see and work with the folder structure that I've set up, and wants the folders and documents listed alphabetically by name. So until those options are offered in Paper I won't be using it. But otherwise it seems like a nice app, and if you aren't bugged by the All Folders (and listed by Recently Viewed) thang, maybe it's for you.
