Copy Paper elements with comments

Level 2


I am currently trying to copy sections of one Dropbox Paper file to a new file and I would like to be able to copy the elements of the original file with their respective comments. This would be especially necessary for comments on parts of images.

Is there any way to enable this ?

Thank you in advance !

Hi there, currently it isn’t possible to copy comments from one Paper doc to another.
I can forward this idea to our dev team for their consideration in future to see if it can be implemented.
Have a great weekend ahead!

Hi Jay,

Thank you for your reply !

It would indeed been a significant improvement if it were possible to copy comments across files, I hope your dev team will be able to implement this soon!
