Dropbox API Support & Feedback
Find help with the Dropbox API from other developers.
I'd love to be able to use Dropbox Paper for our Standard Operating Procedures, but Paper docs are isolationist in that they can't be embedded elsewhere, like Google Docs. We want to embed them in our Project Management software so the Paper doc is in context with the tasks, without forcing our admin to open up separate links.
What's required is for Paper docs to be able to be displayed in an iframe. Is this functionality possible or on your roadmap?
Appreciate the reply, Greg. Am surprised by this news, since the embed functionality is crucial if Paper expects to be an alternative to Google Docs. I would have expected feature parity on this point.
Is there a public roadmap where users can upvote features?
We're currently in the process of migrating Paper documents to live in the Dropbox file system like other Dropbox files. You can find more information on that migration here.
While Dropbox still doesn't offer a way to embed arbitrary Paper docs in an iframe directly, for Paper docs as files in the Dropbox file system, you can use the Dropbox Embedder to embed them. To do so, you would get a shared link for the .paper file, and then use that as the shared link in the Embedder.
