Re: Api need to implement Evernote import to Paper

Paper API - Create Paper Document

So I've found your API for Paper, however it doesn't include the ability to create paper document. Specifically with content in it. 

 

I have a separate question/request around templates (https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-Paper/Customize-quot-Create-meeting-doc-quot-or-Custom-Templ...).

 

If we could have an API for creating documents with content in them, we could solve this problem ourselves, but unless I'm misssing it, I can't see anywhere in the API to create a Paper document.

@Greg-DB Is it possible using the Dropbox Paper API to create a document using an existing Dropbox Paper template?

@jondotcom No, unfortunately the Dropbox Paper API doesn't support creating new Paper documents from existing Paper templates, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.
