I would like to write, draw, erase on files in Dropbox. Unfortunately, iCloud is miles ahead, but I can't blame them, both iCloud and the Pencil are made by Apple. I would love to know if Dropbox can pour some love into iPad and make better integration of the Pencil with Dropbox files. Thanks!

Hi @ChristopherLee, thanks for posting today!

 

Could you let us know more about exactly how it would be used in your workflow? Which files would you like to see this feature available?

 

Any further details you can provide would be great!

 

Additionally, Dropbox Paper on iOS devices now allows the use of the Apple Pencil

Hi! Say I'm editing something with a friend and I have my Apple Pencil handy. I can right away highlight something they said, and write a little asterisk with a comment right under it.

 

Or I might be making a table on my iPad by drawing six boxes and writing them numbers in. Then my friend can come later and draw a frequency histogram of the data. He finds a mistake in my data, so hewith his own Apple Pencilerases the numbers in question and writes the correct ones.

 

Mainly I would like to see it working with Dropbox Paper as well as PDF files. They are perfect for retaining data. DOCX files might work, but compatibility issues can arise.

 

Apple Pencil should work with Dropbox Paper like, well, pencil and paper.

Hello everybody,

Is there a possibility in Paper for iPad to scribble on pictures, pdf files, screenshots etc. with the Apple Pencil? That would be very helpful for quickly capturing corrections and scribbles on drafts and ideas.
