Merging Dropbox and Dropbox Paper

Merging Dropbox and Dropbox Paper

So, apparently the new version of Dropbox erased the ability to keep Paper files and standard files (Word, Excel, PDF, etc.) in the same location. The incompetency here is unreal. I'm an architect and project manager, so I create a folder for each project I design and manage. Prior to the update, for Project A, I was able to put all of my contracts and blueprints in the Project A folder alongside my Paper files. These paper files were things such as Project Notes, Project Checklists, Project To-Do's, and so forth. That way, if one of my team members needed direction on a given day, I could give them the direction via Paper files (by tagging them in the Paper document, giving them checklists, reminders, timelines, etc.) and simultaneously they could open up a PDF of my blueprints right there in the same folder. Now, no more. Any suggestions on how to deal with this? This was a crucial part of my workflow that's now been completely erased.

Hey @caseyoutdoorobsessions, and welcome to our Community!

When did this issue start happening? If you could also let me know which platform you use to access your Paper files, that'd be amazing. 

Have you recently upgraded or downgraded your Dropbox account?

Keep me posted, and we'll take it from there.
