How can I remove myself from a shared document in paper?

Level 4

It seems that only the creator a the document can archive or delete it.  Can I remove myself without contacting the owner?

Re: How can I remove myself from a shared document in paper?

I just gave it a shot myself, and I also did not find a way to remove myself from a document. 

 

Also, I did not find anything using the keyboard shortcuts. Seems to me like this is a huge spot for improvement. Though I could have missed it. 

 

I would not expect a answer from the Dropboxer's if its a yet to be implemented feature. Dropbox doesnt comment on upcoming features, nor do they give time lines for such enhancements.

This is not any sort of a solution, so I’m not sure why this has been marked as “solved”. I’ve got a couple of documents in my account that are other peoples’ documents which I cannot get rid of. I am never again going to view someone else’s Paper document because of this, which is a shame, because I am sure this is not the intended behavior. This is a bug, and should have been fixed long ago.

Has there been any progress on this? Definately not solved and don't want to continue looking at Paper files people have invited me to that I cannot get rid of!

You may keep in mind that I’ve recently discussed how you could go about Unfollowing Paper docs you no longer need here. Please have a look at this discussion at your earliest convenience & do let me know how you get on with this advice on this conversation.

Re: How can I remove myself from a shared document in paper?

No, that doesn't work.

I'm not following the document which is shared with me and it's still in my view.
It's a private document which is shared with me and I can only view it.

Please figure out a solution to opt-out from documents like this.

Thank you.

Re: How can I remove myself from a shared document in paper?

Jane,

As a paying Dropbox customer, please reiterate for I'm sure the thousandth time, to the people in charge of Paper that this issue is utterly ridiculous. I honestly can't believe that there is any solid customer research and feedback to support making shared items basically permanent. At the very least I should be able to hide these documents somehow. It's almost 2019 and I still cannot leave a shared document. Every other stranger who is shared on this document can also view my email address. I could go on extensively about my frustration but you get the idea. I'll just stop by saying I've even considered closing my Dropbox account because of this issue.
