How to add (upload/ add Media button) into a table? - Dropbox Paper

Explorer | Level 3

Hey Everyone,

 

I know there is a button I can upload media from. But I'm trying to make a paper template for my designer and have him click on a (+) button in that table cell to directly browse his pc to add media in that required cell.
The reason I'm asking is I've seen a similar table before and I can't seem to figure how to add that button.

 

Thank you.

Hi @ahmadaladham, let's see what we can find here. 

 

I tried this out as well by creating a Paper template and adding a table in the main body. 

 

I was able to add an image by clicking on one of the table's cells, and choosing the first option that came up on the menu bar at the bottom of the screen:

Is that the option you're looking for by any chance?

 

Give me a nudge whenever you get a moment to check this out. Thanks!

Hey, I know about this button. 
I meant to add a big button in different tables cells that look like a big +. So my employee knows in which cells they have to add the media exactly. 
I've seen a template before but I can't seem to find it. otherwise, I would have shown you a screenshot of what I mean.

Off the top of my head, plus (+) icons do appear at the top or the left of a table if you hover over the grid, which give you the option to add a column or a row, respectively. 

 

However, there isn't currently such a template that I can find that gives the + option on every cell of a table to add media. 

 

Is that a feature that you'd be interested in seeing in the future?

Yes I'd like to have a button feature that we can add to table cells
