As this topic still gets at least sporadic activity, I thought it was worth mentioning that the Dropbox Paper help guides still say that you can export Paper docs to .docx or markdown format: https://help.dropbox.com/da-dk/files-folders/paper/export-docs

Yes it's possible to export Dropbox Paper documents to Markdown using the web interface, but unfortunately it's still not in the new API.. The conversion itself works great, and it would be extremely helpful if this functionality could be implemented in the API.

I think that you have missed something during magiration. You can check document and save name in lower case.

Yes, to clarify, as linked above, exporting a Paper doc as Markdown from an account with the new Paper setup is possible manually via the web site. The original request here is for the ability to do so programmatically, via the API, which is not currently possible.

I'll add a +1 to this feature request. We need an option to export as markdown via the API! Thank you

At our company we use the current /paper/ endpoint to extract papers in markdown format.

I have been trying to migrate to the Dropbox API, but as mentioned, it only returns HTML. Since the exported HTML does not have semantics included (No <h1>...<h6>), lists items are all wrapped in <ul>'s seperatly, I can not transform the exported HTML back to markdown.

 

We would love to have the ability to export to markdown, to use Dropbox Paper as a CMS like we described in this blog post: Dropbox Paper as a headless CMS

+1. Markdown-exporting helps us when backup documents.
