What Happened to Link Previews?

What Happened to Link Previews?

There used to be this nice thing where if you dopped a link into a Paper document, it would turn into a rectangle with an image, some text, etc. Did they stop doing that, or do I need to activate is somehow?

Hi there @Somak, thanks for reaching out to us here!

This should still be the case, if you're posting a link to a file that's supported for previewing in Paper. 

Are you not seeing any preview box being generated at all, or is it perhaps showing an error?

Also, what are you trying to add a link to? Is it a website link, or a link to a file?

Let me know and we can go from there!
