Download button for assets in Paper

Download button for assets in Paper

There is no download button for assets. Images are easy to drag and drop, but videos and audios?  You need a downloader extension to download audio and video assets. Not very elegant. Please add one and KEEP THE ORIGINAL FILENAME.

Hey there @walterknussen; welcome to our Community and thanks for using Dropbox!

 

I'm sorry to ask, but I see you posted this under the Paper ideas and, to be honest, I'm not quite sure what exactly you are referring to.

 

Could you let us know some additional information or even send us a screenshot of what's troubling you so we can advise further?

 

Thanks!

There is no way to download videos from Dropbox Paper. There is no way to download audio from Dropbox Paper. You can download images and gifs by cmd-click "Save As", but the original filename is modified by Paper. I'm recommending that you add a simple download button to all assets in Paper and that the original filename is preserved.

I was very surprised when I came across this feature gap yesterday - it cause a big disruption for us. We moved to using Dropbox Paper from Dropbox Showcase and being able to download videos is a feature that seems to have been missed on Dropbox Paper. Also, adding a feature where you can 'Download all' (files, powerpoints, videos in one go) is another feature that we had with Showcase and is now not available on Dropbox Paper.

Are you serious Dropbox? No download button ?!!!!

There is still no way to download videos nor audio from Dropbox Paper, right? I think this issue should definitely be fixed sooner rather than later as it is very important for their users. 

 

Thumbs up for a change!

I found a workaround:

1. Export -> Microsoft Word (.docx)

2. Open the docx file. You can find downloadable dropbox URLs for the videos.

 

I think this is silly but it worked for me.
