Paper – footnotes, captions & anchors; oh my!

New member | Level 1

Hey guys,

Love the product. Few ideas whilst using it with colleagues:

Footnotes/references
It’d be great to be able to add footnotes, citations or references inline or at the bottom of a Paper document. Idea: dotted underline, click to go to citation—alt, number[1] in brackets, link colour and smaller than body text.

Captions
Add captions to attached media—opaque or smaller text for context/so they’re not part of the body copy

Anchors
Obviously these exist. Can be flaky, i.e. sometimes the plus sign appears instead of an anchor, and no matter where you click or highlight you can’t see the anchor unless you refresh. It’d be great to anchor to anchors/headings on other pages with custom link text, not just the text it auto generates.

…Oh my!
Really frustrating that follow edited docs is turned on by default when I invite people to collaborate. Nobody wants more emails than they already receive. Off by default in my opinion, except for comments. I feel users also need finer control over notifications e.g. only be notified of comments with mentions and so forth. Slack and other collab. chat platform integration would be incredible—to continue slowing the influx of emails.

But seriously, nice product guys
