Edit a paper doc from another app

Edit a paper doc from another app

From the API docs, there doesn't seem to be a way to edit a Paper doc through another app. Just wanted to double check this isn't yet possible? We basically want to introduce rich notes for each project in our SaaS app and since we love the Paper interface, we'd prefer to use Paper instead of building our own, more limited version. Is there any alternative workaround to achieve this with Paper at this point? Thanks 🙂

The API unfortunately doesn't offer any way to upload or edit Paper documents yet, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request.

The Dropbox API now offers a way to create and update Paper documents programmatically:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#paper-docs-create
https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#paper-docs-update

If you're using an official SDK, there will also be corresponding methods for those endpoints.
Need more support?
