Create Paper doc missing in Dropbox desktop app

Explorer | Level 3

In the Dropbox desktop app you can create folders/shortcuts/documents from a drop-down menu. However, I do not see the option to create a Paper doc there.  Anyone know why? Or if that is on the way?

Welcome to Community @Hjörtur

Thanks for the screenshot. 

From what I see there, Paper is cloud based at the time and so you cannot have Paper docs syncing locally, nor create them from your desktop. You will find a separate tab under the Files section online and you will be able to create you Papers from there. dividers

Paper is available on the desktop app and under Files online to new users only. For those users, Paper docs and Dropbox files will be accessible in the same place alongside all other Dropbox contentgrinning face
 
We don’t have a timeline for releasing it to our existing users just yet, but we’ll be rolling improvements out over the coming months
 
Wait for it. winking face

Looking forward to seeing this feature for existing users. Being able to centralise everything in a single app is simply awesome.

View Dropbox Paper inside new Dropbox Desktop App?

Explorer | Level 4

Is there a way to view Dropbox Paper documents within the new Dropbox Desktop App? Currently, I can only "connect" a Paper to a Space via pasting the Paper URL as a Shortcut which then opens the link in a new browser window.. 

Would love if there was a way to view a Paper doc within the Dropbox Desktop App itself  / connect a Paper to a specific Dropbox Space and recieve updates on Tasks! 

Thanks!
