@whell00s try typing command+/ in a Paper doc to view a full list of shortcuts 🙂

Hey @Rich 

 

It’s a common request and something we’re investigating. We would really love to know more about why it’s particularly important for you and how exactly you’d use this capability?

@whell00s you can find a list of all shortcuts by pressing command+? on Mac or control+? on Windows  or by clicking on the keyboard icon in the bottom left of the page 🙂

Hi @RichardDBX!

A few from me (sorry....!). This is as somebody who loves Paper now that I know what it actually does..... I needed showing ha!

 

  1. Is there any chance of being able to do things offline in an app on desktop? Still not totally sold on web page client stuff only
  2. When can we get folders to sort things (my Papers set up now is simply put a mess and I cannot cope!) and structure stuff better (Paper in to a structure, linked to Dropbox?). I want to have a Paper eco-system relating to my files
  3. As a feature element when can we start putting folders etc 
  4. Can we please have a way of dragging/dropping files other than just images please? Its a pain to click +
  5. When using tables can we PLEASE have a way of changing colum/row size thats not a PITA
  6. Justification is needed in tables.

Ok, going to stop for a bit as I can smell my tea burning, sorry, and thanks for that - and to @Ed for sorting!! 


Thanks for the great questions and feedback, @Mark

 

We can't get too specific about our product roadmap with respect to your feature requests, but these are all awesome ideas and we really appreciate the suggestions! 

 

Regarding #1, #2, and #3, we'd love to hear more about how you would use these features and why they'd be useful to you. #4, #5 and #6 are common feature requests as well, and we'll be sure to take note of them.

Offline organization and access to the files would be my primary interest. Ability to work on a document on the web or my mobile device, then come back to the office and open the file locally, for instsance.

One of our newest features is the ability to comment on a specific part of an image. Just click on an image in Paper and click the "Add annotation" icon (the circle with the plus sign in the corner). Check it out!

Cheers @RichardDBX

 

  1. I often work on the go on laptops etc. and so do not always have access to internet. That way I want to be able to work on something, it sit and wait in a pending state and then upload to Dropbox once I get a network connection again - I suppose like the current desktop client does, and, the new Paper mobile app does. 
  2. Dropbox, literally, has my life in it. But my life has many different 'fronts' to it. For example I'm Mark the 'person', Mark the 'teacher', Mark the 'company director' x 2 etc. Each of these strands to my life are in Dropbox in a simple folder structure, but, it doesnt work like that with Paper. 
  3. I want files in Paper to link to whats in my Dropbox. So, we are currently doing some work around our training PowerPoints. I'd love to be able to add those files to the Paper document as a download / peview window and then build up comments around it - preferably linking directly to the file in my Dropbox
