Offline mode for Dropbox Paper web & native desktop app?

Offline mode for Dropbox Paper web & native desktop app?

Helpful | Level 5

Will Dropbox Paper for web consider support offline mode just like google docs in the future?

Hi,

In my company, we use Paper a lot to share ideas, write specs, take notes. We love the product, and honnestly, besides some formatting features lacking, there is nothing more to add... Except this offline mode (sames as GDrive provides).

I work a lot in trains, where internet connection is not perfect. Being interrupted every 3 minutes or so is a nightmare.

I know that the mobile apps provide the offline mode. But honnestly, writing or reating a long doc on a mobile app far from being an excellent experience. So the mobile app is not a solution.

Can you at least tell us if this is something you are really and serioulsy considering? Or are your "thank you" more like "thank you but, no, we will not really do it"? A clear answer to that question would help us a lot to know if we stick to Paper or not.

Best regards,

Michael.

We‘re asking for an offline Mac/PC App since July 2016.

So what‘s the matter?

Pleas guys, Dropbox Paper rocks!

I‘ve already tried Microsoft One Note. It sucks!

evernote? Sucks.

Apple notes? Sucks as hell!

Synology notes? Sucks.

 

 guys! Please bring that **bleep**!

And please feed Paper with some handwriting tools!

would be incredible!

Desktop client for Dropbox paper

Thanks for showing your interest in this @wesioros!

Note that I moved your post under this thread to keep things neat as it's practically the same feature request; a native client (desktop app) for Dropbox Paper on Mac or Windows computers that is. 

Let me know if you have anything else you'd like to add.

Yes, I really hope this is a priority. I’ve used paper since it rolled out, and the lack of offline editing on MacOS it the main thing preventing me from adopting it as my main notes app.

Paper was the final step for my leaving dropbox. It was bad enough there were no sensible storage plans (why is my smallest option double my actual hard drive space?!? I'm paying for space I can never use!) but the whole Paper debacle shows a company not driving its' core business and diluting a robust product into a mess of silos it had not integrated or planned for, and laying out a future pig's ear of a mess which will never be reconcilable without pain, as any solution will involve messing around with existing infrastructure. It's a real shame, but as a cloud storage provider, to release a new platform that doesn't quite build on the core offering was absolute insanity. I can't remember how many years ago this was flagged as a colossal oversight, but it's fairly moot now.
