Re: How to change owner on a folder in Paper?

Hey @Tim42c,

Ed again here. It looks like this is only available if you're signed in from a Business account. I tried to change ownership in a doc in my personal account and it's not available. 

Hope it sheds some light.

@Walterbased info provided by @Ed, seems this is case of the feature not being clearly documented as available only  to Business accounts. Bummer.

Just confirmed this @Tim42c - I sent the feedback to our content team to get the Help Center and other areas more clearly documented. Good catch.

Shame because I need this to transfer my Paper documents from my personal account to my Team account, otherwise I have to keep swapping profiles or share everything with the other, which is dumb. 
Transfer of ownership should be possible.

Let us know if you figure this out, I'm having the exact problem you are where I'm given "can edit" and "can comment" but no "make owner" in my paper docs. 

thank you!!
