Re: Dropbox Paper leave a shared document or folder

This issue is making me not use Paper at all, as my organization is HUGE and I can't get rid of all the junk that is shared with me! I can't even choose to "unfollow" a folder. Gonna use a different platform. Too bad.

I'm really annoyed by this. People have been complaining forever. It's so infuriating that I'm in the process of abandoning Dropbox Paper, and Dropbox will be losing my paid subscription.

Here is one more trying-not-to-be-upset vote for fixing this. I was added to a number of DB Paper documents years ago as part of a consulting project. The owners and editors have since been "deleted" (see attached image). The lucky souls have been released from Paper Prison while I and the other poor "Viewer" were not so fortunate.

 

We were merely visiting - trying to help some people in a bind. But now the parole board, guards and warden have all left the facility. I know the key to this annoying Paper Box is just down the hall buried in a stack of Jira. Brave Jane comes by occasionally to patiently hear our pleas for parole. She even sometimes calls down the cell block to the product owner and dev team apparently preserving the Paper project prioritization pile as a pillow, perplexed as to Paper's plummeting praxis & profits. Pity.

Yeah, I was thinking about starting to use Paper, but couldn't clear out my workspace, came here to see this... No thanks, this is a minor thing to fix, and a huge annoyance to users. It's a red flag that Dropbox isn't serious about the product.

Hi there,

 

it´s now 2020 and I have completly the same problem. Clicked on an old Paper Dokument link to see if there are still important infos for me. After that I wanted to delete it from my list or leave it, so that I don´t have to see it in my list anymore. The answers are still the same like here. "Ask the owner to kick you out or "archive" it. Archiving doesn´t help, it just keeps being there. Absolutly useless and bad experience. I feel the same. I also will never click anymore on a paper dokument and I´m also thinking to leave Dropbox completly and go with another cloud system as I feel they are cutting my freedoms here. 2 years later and no solution. 😄 That´s insane. I think if the owner changed his email address or just don´t answer, you will be aaaaaaalways in that paper dokument. And yes. I also got pre prepared mails and stuff where they are ass friendly and talk about god and the world but the problem is still there. Also 2 years after.

 

Very satisfying.

 

Regards, the guy who´s stuck forever in a paper dokument. 🙂

Double that. 

 

This Issue and the fact that Dropbox and Papers Folder structures are seperated. 

And just to steal a march on the incoming auto-reply: Any hints to the „share idea“-Thread is unnecessary. This issues are years old, people are craving and tons of pro-users don't use paper because of these two inconsistent elements. 

 

I would never cancel my pro-account because dropbox has become essential for my daily life.

But no development on years old features, that seem to make a difference for a huge part of the community. And to be honest: this massive amount of just a few but heavily used textexpander-like sentences from the team - premade standard auto-replys – feel like an insult to any paying client .

 

Best regards

Benedikt

Can we please get a definitive answer to this problem. What's the plan of the Dropbox Team? if you are no longer interested in supporting the product then it's better to be upfront with users and let them know before they invest more time in it and add more documents which would make the migration more difficult down the line. 

Can you please be a little more transparent / responsible? 

 

Thank you
