Saving Paper docs to existing Dropbox folder structure/file-system.

Hi

A number of us have started using dropbox paper at work. We want to save documents that we create in paper to an existing Team folder but I can't see how to do this. Any ideas anyone?

I was expecting to be able to save Paper Documents on Dropbox, where I have my whole archive. I see Paper as a very cool editor (I used to be a Google Docs/ Sheets user, but Paper is do much cooler!!). 

So it only makes sense to link the notes editor with the filing system (archive). 

To me it is a big let down if they won’t be linked soon

This thread had been going on for 3 years. How many more years or votes does it need before it's assigned to a Release?

That is a great question. I've been a fan (and user) of Dropbox for years and have been convincing business associates and clients to use it as well for projects we collaborate on. Fewer and fewer of them think it's the best platform for collaboration for this very reason. If my clients won't use it there is less and less reason for me to stay on the platform. I really hope Dropbox takes some action soon.

Looking at alternatives like iA Writer, I quickly found out that Dropbox discontinued their sync API making it near impossible for other developers to solve this problem... This should be addressed immediately. Thanks.

Would love to be able to intergrate Dropbox paper onto my finder in mac! Thanks for considering it.

4 years later, how is this still not a thing?

Dropbox is great, my entire file structure is in it. It's crazy that I can drop docs or links from every competitor into the file structure, but not Dropbox's own product?

What happend with the Paper dashboard?

Still nothing?

We use a Dropbox folder for each project, and need to be able to organize our Dropbox Paper files in there.

I would love to be able to save Paper files anywhere in Dropbox instead of only on the Paper site. This is the way that Google Docs works.

When working in a project folder on my desktop it is inconvenient to open a browser, go to the Paper URL and search for a document that I would have naturally saved directly in my project folder.

Thanks for sharing this idea!

The team is currently working on this as part of the Paper 2020 release.

You can check out a little more info about this here.

I'll keep you all posted with any updates in the meantime!
