Can I add a link to a Dropbox file in my Dropbox comments?

Explorer | Level 4

I'd like to add a URL link or dropbox file link on the comments window.

But, I can just find the special function to mention a person like "@person" at comments.

Please let me know the way.

Hey there @bongjun, thanks for checking in with us! 

You should be able to add a URL or a shared link to a file in the comments section of a Paper doc. 

If you're not able to, could you give me some more info on exactly what you're seeing? Are any error messages popping up?

Let me know what you find!

I find out there are some different things between "paper comment window" and "pdf comment window".

As you mentioned, it's ok in the comments section of a Paper doc. 

Could I add a URL/dropbox file link on that of a pdf doc?

Of course, @bongjun

You can add a URL or a shared link as a comment on a file. Even if the hyperlink doesn't get applied, you can copy-paste it in your search bar and it will redirect you accordingly. 

I hope this helps!
