Hey @Kris89, while we’re gathering all the relevant feedback internally, kindly note that it’s possible to be removed from a shared Paper doc by contacting the Owner. Have you asked them to remove your access by any chance? Please let me know & I’ll do my best to further advise. Thanks!

The issue here is you're not listening to what we're saying Jane – we don't want to reach out to owners to have ourselves removed. We should have the ability to remove ourselves without needing to contact the author.

Jane,  Are you kidding us? It takes your developers several hours to implement this functionality.
Have you asked them to add this functionality by any chance? Please let me know & I’ll do my best to further advise. Thanks!

Hi Jane,
Thank you for your feedback. As a business owner, we use Dropbox professionally to share files. The very basic of it without fireworks. It works great!

Paper, is more like a collaborative tool. So we tried it a couple weeks when it launched but realized its not adapted to our reality. So we completely stop using it and now we have a better way to collaborate with documents even with our clients.

When a company like Dropbox do not seems to care about people’s need, cause we really need to be able to remove ourself from a document, they will see their clients jump off the ship.

Regards,

I think I should be able to remove myself no matter what permissions I have on a document. I really don't want to have a bunch of Paper documents that someone has shared with me and I no longer wish to be a part of stuck with me. 

I've already got documents and templates colleagues have shared with me that do not understand how or have the desire to take the time to remove me. Therefore, I want to be able to get out of those documents.

I don't think you guys are understanding how important this is to solve.

I viewed a doc someone shared with me. The fact there is no way to remove myself from that doc so it doesn't appear in my account is a huge fail.

To work on complex projects I need to keep my space organized. If you don't allow me to unfollow or delete docs I previewed just doesn't make sense for me to use your tool.

I'm facing the same issue as many others, where I'm unable to remove myself from documents I have viewed. I should not have to contact the document owner to remove me, I should be able to just remove myself. I have a paid subscription with dropbox for more than 2 years now. If this issue does not get solved and I continue to see poorly support that dropbox gives I'll definetly cancel my subscription and move to some other cloud storage provider.

Amazingly this is the very reason I no longer pay Dropbox for a premium account and NO longer use Paper. If a company cannot resolve something so simple and dont want to lissen to their paying users then I dont want to be associated with them.
