Custom document dimension?

Hello, this is a very basic question but I can't seem to find any related information. I was just wondering if it's possible to customize the document dimension in Dropbox Paper? For example, I'd like to create a landscape document at the dimension of 9x7 inches. Is this possible? Thanks!

Hey @lanlanonearth, you may keep in mind that it’s not currently possible to adjust/expand your Paper doc's width & height, though this would be a great idea 💡 & thanks a lot for expressing your interest on this functionality here. 
 
Please do let me know here in case I’ve misunderstood your inquiry in any way & we’re always just a post away if you’d like to share your thoughts in the future, so feel free to drop us a line here. Happy Paper-editing & take care until we talk again!

Hi Jane,

Thank you for the quick response and attending to our need as Paper users  Yes, it would be great if this feature can be offered to us in the near future (if possible, also with the added bonus of defining our own margin size for each page). I just discovered Dropbox Paper today and I am enjoying every bit of it. Thank you!

Hi all,

Currently the line width is defined to 84 characters, which might be way to narrow if for example multi-layered lists are used.

Could you please add the option for a 'wide layout', that definves significantly wider lines?

Optimally, in this mode the user chooses when to break lines, and if the line is wider than the screen then a horizontal scroll-bar appears.

Thanks for the great tool!

Hi All,

It seems that there is no way to place a checkbox inside a list, escecially needed for nested lists of tasks (see example below).

The desired behavior:

======= Example:   =============

My jobs for today:

* [x] first big job
    * [x] subpart 1
    * [x] subpart 2
    * [ ] subpart 3 - skipped for now...
* [ ] second job...

=============================

 

Moreover, sometimes I would like to put few checkboxes in one sentance:

===== Example: =======

Points discussed: [x] first point, [x] second point, [ ] third point

==================

Thanks,
Alex

Hey there Alex - thanks for using Paper and providing us with those awesome ideas 

As our dev team aims to collect and track all feedback requests to inform the ongoing development of Paper, I've gone ahead and put your requests for a wide layout view when viewing your Paper docs on the website and for additional options within checklists such as tasks (to-dos) and so on, on our list - thanks so much for your valuable input on this. 

Feel free to let us know if you have any more feedback or questions.

PS: I've merged and moved your threads under one place to keep things neat around our Community - I hope you don't mind. Also note that I've moved it here so other users can find your feature requests and upvote them too!
