Can I delete Dropbox Paper history?

Can I delete Dropbox Paper history?

Hello,

I've done something a bit silly: while working at home on a Dropbox Paper file created by my boss, I attempted to paste in a link and instead accidentally pasted in part of a message I'd written to a friend.

I deleted it again instantly, but now it's visible in the edit history of the document.

 I've tried to find a way to erase that from the document history but I can't seem to. Does anyone know if you can wipe specific edits from Dropbox Paper history?

(The content isn't damaging per se -- just a little embarrassing to have a chunk of text written the way I speak to my friends visible in a document owned by my boss and coworkers...)

Hey there @ninren - sorry to hear about this.

While there's no way to permanently delete edits that already made it to a Paper doc's history, you could roll it back to previous version if you have edit rights; I'm not really sure if this works for your case though.

I wish I had a better answer than this and I remain at your disposal if you have any more questions!
