Formatting and color coding in Dropbox Paper

New member | Level 2

I would really like to see color coding, underline and italicize available in dropbox paper.  I notice paper is getting updates but am hoping to find a place where upcoming updates are posted and/or add my suggestion somewhere.

Hey there Russ - thanks for using Paper!

The best section to post such queries is the 'Share an Idea' part of our Paper's section here on our forums. Here's a direct link for your convenience: 

https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Paper-Ideas/idb-p/101002012

In the meantime, I'm glad to let you know that these features are already live!

For color coding I'd need some clarifications but if you mean highlighting text it's already possible. Just mark the text you'd like to highlight and press Ctrl + E

Same goes for italicizing only this time use Ctrl+I while for underlining the keyboard shortcut would be Ctrl+U.  

Note that on Macs the Ctrl button is replaced by the Command button. 

I'm attaching the whole list below so you can visualize too! 

[Note that this list can be found on the lower right corner everywhere on your Paper section]

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any more feedback or questions; I'd be happy to assist @russstewart00!

I have a co-worker who I want to collaborate with using Paper.  His current process is to use color coding to indicate the status of task.

Eg..  Green means - actively working on it.... Red means "stopped/waiting" on something to move forward.... etc...

We can live without this, but it seems like something that has existed in text editors forever, so I'd think would be easy enough to implement.

Thanks for the additional info and showing your interest in this - I've passed your feedback on to the team and they liked the idea too, Russ!

I don't know if this will be implemented but make sure to keep an eye out as our Paper's dev team are constantly working on presenting new features and re-vamping our existing ones too 

If there's anything else I can help with in the meantime, please let me know @russstewart00 !
