Introducing note boxes: A quick way to add important notes to your Paper docs

Hi Paper pals 👋
 
I just wanted to pop in to let you know about a new shortcut we released in Dropbox Paper today. 
 
On a new line, type /note and press Enter. You’ll get a colored note box that you can use to add important notes in your doc. 
 
Here’s how it looks in action:

You can use note boxes to create summaries at the top of your doc, insert examples into your documentation, or add important tips for your readers. You can even create different colored boxes by typing /note red, /note green, and so on.
 
We hope you’ll give it a try, and if you have any feedback—good or bad, please feel free to post here anytime.
 
Thanks!
John (from the Paper Design team)

How is this different from a table?

In its current implementation, a note box basically is a 1-cell table. It's just a quick way to create a colored 1-cell table.

Without this shortcut, you'd have to delete a bunch or rows and columns manually, which can be a pain if you do this often.

The problem of being a 1 cell table is that the note is not responsive.

On these days and age applications should be designed mobile (or tablet) first.

Re. Dropbox Android app.

Is it best to use Dropbox Paper as a Quick Note facility, or is there a slicker way to quickly capture notes?

Need more support?
