Dropbox Paper - Search within documents on iOS app

Explorer | Level 3

When using the Dropbox Paper iOS app, the search field doesn't seem to be searching within documents. It appears to only search document titles. This appears to be a pretty major limitation of the iOS app. I was looking to use Dropbox Paper to replace Google Keep but don't see how I could without this functionality.

Hey there @Adam E.1, I hope you're having a good start to your week!

 

Searching just within the Paper app itself does indeed just bring results for the doc names at the moment.

 

There is a function to search within a Paper doc for a specific word, which you can check out here.

 

I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but I hope this helps to some extent.

 

If you want, I can suggest posting a request for this feature in our dedicated area of the Community here. Others can upvote the post to show their support and interest too.

 

Sorry that I can't be of much more help with this, but please let me know if you have any questions!
