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?

Explorer | Level 4

there were mobile and desktop apps.

Apple notes is ugly, too simple and featureless.

OneNote is a data hog, ugly as hell, takes hours to sync, has too many customisations and is ugly as hell.

Evernote just seems like a joke I don't get. I don't understand why people are paying for it . I mean, use OneNote if you want a cumbersome's free.

Paper could use some improvements that I'm sure are on the way but I would definitely be happy to switch all my notes over as is...if it wasn't only available in browser.

The UX is great. It's soooo purrty to look at. You have nailed the font, It's so nice and clean to type with. Oh and those tables...oh, oh, oh and them code blocks. mmmmmm *nerdgasm*

Give me apps please!

Please, please, please create a native mac application for Dropbox Paper that lets me view and access all my docs from some sort of sidebar navigation. Also, while you're at it, add offline support. This would make Dropbox Paper killer

A couple other questions:

- Are you planning on adding support for font colors?

- Are you planning on adding a linking functionality to allow linking to different parts in a document, or to a different document altogether?

Agreed RE please make a native Mac App for Dropbox paper, something that stores notes offline and make it quick to search and edit notes

I use Evernote all day, every day and Paper seems like it would be a great (possibly better) alternative.  But I need a Mac version that can run offline (planes, client sites without internet access, etc.).

We can start from here:


But, an officially supported cross-platform client would be nice.

I often end up with 6 or 7 tabs of Paper, and soon it's a whole browser window ... Wish it was just a separate app so I could CMD-TAB to switch between paper and other applications.

No - this is the wrong approach.


Please make Paper use document standards (eg, Markdown or a variant), and let *me* dictate the tools I use for it offline. Make Paper documents appear in my Dropbox folder tree, not force me to have to use another system, and generate exports to get to my data.


I do not want *another* desktop application locking me into *another* proprietary system. 


Do not reinvent Microsoft Word, Badly.

I've been using dropbox and dropbox paper for quite a while now...however one very useful thing would be offline usage! It's the only crippling feature that I feel would make the apps awesome!
