Can I move Paper folders between personal and team/business accounts?

Helpful | Level 6

how to move paper folders between personal and business account?

i accidentally imported a hackpad workspace into my team/business dropbox paper account instead of my personal dropbox paper account -- and i cannot find a way to move paper folders between accounts as paper folders currently do not appear within my local dropbox accounts

i also cannot see a way to re-import this special hackpad workspace as it has already been marked as imported

furthermore i cannot see a way to change ownership of a dropbox paper folder or paper document file

 

thanx in advance

Currently, moving Paper folders between accounts isn’t an option, and a Hackpad workspace can only be imported once. 
 
To change the owner of a shared file or shared folder, the current owner must make another user the owner via the sharing properties. Here’s how https://www.dropbox.com/help/files-folders/change-shared-folder-owner
 
I am noting your comments on moving Paper folders, as feedback, and sending them over to our team so they’re aware. 
 
Thanks!

Yeah, sorry about that, I though the second part of your question was about regular folders. 
 
And no thanks are necessary. We very much appreciate your feedback, and we welcome your ideas and suggestions! 
 
Cheers

thanx @Sanchez for your quick reply
my understanding is that for now you cannot change the owner of a paper-folder or a paper-document, so https://www.dropbox.com/help/files-folders/change-shared-folder-owner does not apply
thanx for sending my comments over to your team

Any update on this? I have hundreds of Paper docs I want to move into my business account...

 

What's crazy is the export Paper doc feature is so incredibly slow... it looks like it literally takes ~30 seconds to "prepare for download" each Paper doc!!??
