Paper dokument not deletable

Paper dokument not deletable

Explorer | Level 4

Hi,

 

it´s a pain in the ass. I can´t see any option to leave or delete the Paper dokument I´m member of. There are just two buttons (share and archived). Not three dots for dropdown like at the other files and folders. When I click on it, I have the three dots and a bunch of options... Deleting is greyed out and I can´t click it (I think because I´m not the owner). I also don´t see a button to "leave" the paper. User experience is horrible here. Is this normal or am I blind?

 

Thanks for your support!

 

Regards,

 

Artan

Hi @Artan Krasniqi; welcome to our Community and thanks for using Paper!

 

It's truth that you won't be able to delete a Paper doc unless you're the original creator/owner. You can archive it in this case though. 

 

The other way would be to have the original owner of the doc to remove your access from it following these steps

 

I hope this clears things up for you Artan and please let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi,

 

thanks for your reply. Perhaps it should be better in future to have the possibility to leave the Paper Dokument yourself. You kinda feel just trapped in it, not giving you the option to leave it. It´s my account so it feels just weird. I´m not quite sure what the sense behind this is!? Ok, then I will now contact the person who is the owner of the paper to ask if that person can remove me... Wow! :D

 

Still thanks for your reply. Please change this to easier steps.

 

Regards

Thanks for getting back to us here @Artan Krasniqi!

 

I understand how this would be a useful feature for you in addition to the workaround Walter mentioned for archiving the doc.

 

If you'd like to I can suggest sharing this as a feature request in our dedicated area of the Community here where others will also be able to upvote and share their interest in this too.

 

If there's anything else that we can help with, please don't hesitate to give us another nudge here.

 

I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
