Since Dropbox is unable to provide a working solution, here is one.
HOW TO STOP DROPBOX PAPER FROM ADDING LINK PREVIEWS
Is it possible to get this fixed? This is very annoying to work with, should be an option. Many other services that add link previews allow you to turn it off, eg Slack.
I'm trying to give Db paper a second change and moving my notes from apples notes app to paper but this really sucks a**
It messes up everything
I can just guess that it does so with every other document also
If this is still not have global disable option, it's a real fail.
have to look another solution.
I asked their support to make it optional as well -- but it seems a very low priority to them. I think they do understand that UX is bad. However, you will notice that they turned all links you pasted in as a redirection -- which means that Dropbox might track your clicks through that functionality. If you can switch it off by default, they can no longer track you.
