How to turn off link previews on Paper?

Level 4

Hello everyone,

I created a doc called "links". When I copy my links to doc, I want to see only URLs, not thumbnails. Is this possible?dd.jpg

Hey there @monerap - thanks for using Paper!

You can achieve this by inputting a space prior to pasting your links in this case.

Let me know if you need anything else!

Is there a way to disable this feature permanently, or to click a link/preview and turn it into the other? These thumbnails appear randomly and it's a tad frustrating.

Not at the moment @Bradloff - I'll be passing this on to our team though for their consideration. Thanks so much for your valuable feedback and helping us improve Paper!

In the meantime, you can use a code block [by entering three backticks (```) to start, and then paste your URL into the block]  to paste your links into a Paper doc as text only. 

I know it's not optimal yet I sure hope it helps to some extent. 

Let me know if you have any more questions or feedback and happy new Year too!

Please ask the team to make this optional. Being forced to see the previews without using the hack is enough to make me use something else.

Just ran into this issue.
Could you please this feature off by default or at least make it clear how to remove the preview.?

It's really annoying and not obvious how to remove the preview.

Dropbox Paper links converted to images

Level 4

Hi everybody,

I've pasted a list (column, one above another) of urls into a Paper file (my way of storing large about of bookmarks - with my comments, in order to quickly look through them) - but some of the links automatically have converted into strange "Preview" images - half of which dont even have a picture on it, but they hide the initial link and make the whole file like 5 times longer, making it very hard to scroll through. I've managed to remove the images but "cutting" the whole thing, then pasting in - and as it converts to image pressing "Cmd+Z" - one by one. But it takes forever. Is there a way to prevent those preview-images from appearing from links?

So it should look like this

  • WebsiteName1
  • website.url
  • WebsiteName2
  • website.url2

But now it looks like this:

  • WebsiteName1
  • HUGE IMAGE WITH BAD PREVIEW
  • WebsiteName2
  • HUGE IMAGE WITH BAD PREVIEW

Thank you!
