Error 500 when trying to open Dropbox Paper - June 2018

Re: Paper beta having problems staying connected - losing data

Helpful | Level 6

I understand that people are annoyed about this, but there are a couple of points to bear in mind:

 

1. As far as I’m aware, Dropbox Paper is still in Beta. You can’t expect perfection. It shouldn’t be used for critical data without alternative backup.

 

2. If you have Dropbox Paper on your iPad or other device’s app, you can still use it. It just won’t reliably synchronise.

You Dropbox people claim that this issue is solved. Unfortunately I have to tell you that it ain’t. Still losing connection *all the time*. It’s impossible to work!

Receiving error 500 on Paper, when status page says fine

New member | Level 2

I am getting "Error 500: Something went wrong" on accessing anything in Paper. Even https://paper.dropbox.com/ is not working.

http://status.dropbox.com/ says everything is fine.

You are right about the Beta. But when DBP was rolled out there where long statements about how it has been tested for a long time. additionally the public Paper is not new anymore. And Dropbox is by far not a tiny little startup anymore where you could definitely bear with little hiccups for several days. Those things should not happen with such big companies.

Starting Tuesday, August 21 and continuing through Wednesday, August 22 I do not have connectivity to Dropbox paper. VERY frustrating and it happens frequently.  I do have an internet connection.  This is the message in the right top corner, "Still offline. You’ll be able to edit once you’re back online. Try now."
