This seems logical to me and a solid miss by Dropbox

Hey guys, out of interest, what platform to you use Paper on the most? Mobile app or web interface?

I really like Grammarly, but the browser feature doesn't work well with Dropbox. and the Grammarly keyboard is disastrous. Is there a way to make nice with them, or are they google exclusively?

Just to chime in here, I'm amazed that a spell check functionality isn't included in Paper by now. I didn't bother to check/test spell check before changing from Google Docs, because I assumed it would have been a default feature. Web browsers/operating systems do have their own built-in spell check, but it doesn't work well with Paper at all. For the record, I'm using macOS + Safari. Are there any plans for implementing this feature? If so, when?

This is mind-boggeling.  The fact that "Present this Doc" is a headline feature presumes that Paper files will be presented to people in senior positions, or worse, customers.  How can a product ship without spellcheck but include a presentation feature first?  Please expedite this feature or we will need to migrate...thank you!

The chrome browser seems to support a built-in spell check. Grammarly support would be awesome

Hi there! I am a Dropbox Plus user and uses Dropbox Paper on a regular basis, and like its simplicity over MS Word or Google Docs for casual composition. However, having Grammarly support is crucial as the text that I wrote usually gets finalised while I'm working on Paper.

 

As a limping Grammarly Premium user, not having support for it on this platform matters to me most. I am curious what causes this incompatibility and will there be support eventually. Either way, I'm prepared to put pressure on Grammarly to push this feature.

Seems like such an obvious and necessary feature -- please implement!

OMG. I opened my paper docs into browser after desktop application. It's terrible!

As not-native speaker I must have spelling checker. Removed application till it doesn't have spelling...
