Dropbox Paper ideas
Have an idea about Dropbox Paper? Share it here with the other Community users like you.
It would be awesome if we could have some kind of simple template (header and footer, margins etc.) for exporting to PDF file and Word file.
Just set it up in preferences - simple header, footer, margins, breaklines as page breaks, width of images. Every export of PDF file will give a file with that prepared template.
Is it possible?
Hey there @zonaarchi - thanks for using Paper and sharing your thoughts on this!
While I'll make sure to pass your comments on to our Paper's dev team - and thank you for this feedback too- could you elaborate on how you'd like to use this feature within your Paper docs upon exporting them to another file-type?
Also, have you tried creating your own template on a sample Paper doc of yours and then export it to either a PDF or a .docx file?
To do this, you'll need to create a Paper doc with the format you'd like (using the current formatting options) and then templatize it (from the ellipsis button on the upper right corner of your doc). From there (after you copy the said template), you'll need to export it to the aforementioned formats (PDF or .docx) and you're good to go!
Let me know if this works for you!
PS: You can find a list of our pre-set templates in the following page - please feel free to take a look as you might find one that suits your needs!
Thanks for your quick response and providing additional information about what you initially had in mind @zonaarchi - it's most appreciated!
Our Paper team are always looking for our users' input regarding our website, current features and as we appreciate the time you take to provide us with your extensive feedback here on our Community, I will make sure your comments are passed along to our development team.
On a side note, I moved your post under the 'Paper Ideas' section so other similar minded users can chime in and upvote it too.
Let me know if you have anything else to add please.
I absolutely agree, and may help us shift from using Microsoft word to paper if possible with our business team.
This request is very important for our business account, and having a template set for the header and footer when exporting is a must if we plan to begin using Dropbox Hello Sign feature for eSignatures.
