Are Paper Templates available?

Quick question: when I first opened Dropbox Paper, I had templates visible at the top, under "CREATE." Now, the only option I have is "Create new Doc," which is a blank slate. Is there a way that I can make the "CREATE" field appear again, so that I can see templates?

Re: Paper Templates

I couldn't get the Create field to appear again, but I was able to get to the templates by going to the Dropbox Paper welcome page: https://paper.dropbox.com/welcome

Exactly! By going to https://paper.dropbox.com/welcome you can see the introduction page.

Re: Paper Templates

Great, thank you! And yes, please pass this on to the team--you guys already have some excellent templates ready to go (and a visually pleasing presentation for them), so it would be great to be able pull up that template option as an existing user without having to go to the welcome page.

 

Great job guys, and great product!

Paper Template

Can I creat my own template or at least copy and paste one paper doc to another?

Dropboxer

Re: Paper Template

Hey @JD3
 
You sure can! You can make up a template, set it up just as you want, then Select All, copy/paste into a new Paper document. You can do it with documents you already have too.
 
This will copy everything, including the title, so if you don’t change the title, you will have two Paper docs with the same name. 
 
I hope this helps! 
Cheers slightly smiling face
