Wrapping text around tables in Paper

Wrapping text around tables in Paper

Explorer | Level 4

I'm trying to decide if Dropbox Paper could meet our needs for collaborating on technical reports. I like the ease of use and sharing, but have been unable to do a couple things that would be helpful / important. The idea is to collaborate as much as possible in Paper, and then export to PDF and perform final formatting in a more full-featured editor.


First is having a table that is less than the width of the page. Is this possible? I can't seem to find anything on this.


Second is wrapping the text around a table. For example, a half-page table with the text flowing around it on the other side. Would like to use this to do callouts as well, basically a 1x1 table with the text wrapping round.


Are these possible in Paper?  Thank for you any insight.

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


Wrapping text around tables and narrowing tables less than the page width isn't currently possible within Paper I'm afraid.


As this isn't currently a feature, I can suggest sharing this as an idea in our dedicated area of the Community here. Others can show their support for the ideas shared here by upvoting the posts.


Sorry that I can't be more helpful with this, but please let me know if you have any questions.
