Is there an easy way to get a Dropbox Paper Doc URL given its doc id? 

 

I'm hoping to navigate to a specific doc in my browser using the information returned from 

https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/paper/docs/search

It looks like the following works

 

https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/{{doc_id}}


I thought I tried that earlier but must have mistyped something. Apologies for the unnecessary ask.

While this works, note that it isn't officially documented with the API, so it may change and stop working in the future. I'll send this along as a feature request for an officially supported way to retrieve the URL via the API.
