Version 138.2

Time for some spring cleaning! It’s now springtime here in San Francisco, so we decided to freshen things up and clean up some old code. The app should feel a bit more responsive now.

*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.

What is going on here?

Not intuitive at all. I tried to emulate many of the features in the getting started doc but my iPad simply didn’t allow it. I then went to the web version and it told me if I wanted to edit I need to open in the app. Typing “:” is suppose to bring up emoji’s - it didn’t. Linking a document in my drop box would add it to the doc but when I selected it to view it was blank. Because it is so clunky, I wanted to duplicate a project but there is no way to duplicate. I archived the Getting Started doc to keep an original and it disappeared from Paper and Dropbox. Only after searching text within the document was I able to find it but had to move it to a new folder to actually see it again in the browser. As you can tell the team working on this did not think it out completely and left a lot of dead ends. Thank you for giving this out for free but I cannot trust my valuable time to work that might simple disappear if I hit the wrong key!
