First time using paper, images not showing with sharing link

New member | Level 2

Hi,

I was a user of hackpad, I love beacuse of its user experience for collaborative work. I tried paper and I honestly, deeply regret it. After working hours on articles, I share it to my peers realising that I'm the only one that can see the images and infographics. All the images are broken when they access it through sharing links.

Why is that? I think this is a very inconvenient issue. I'm deeply disapointed, it was a great product.

Could you first walk me through the steps you took to do this and forward me a screenshot of the exact error message they get? 

Also, is this affecting a specific Paper doc of yours, some or all? 

Let me know what you find and we'll take it from there. Thank you!

(1) Not one, but all my paper documents.
(2) I click on sharing icon on the top right side of the screen and send them to my colleges.
(3) Those who click the button can see all the text but not the images nor the link thumbnails which are broken.

I tried myself in incognito mode and I experience the same thing. I can only see them through my account.

Thanks for the additional information @noteimporta!

Could you also send me a screenshot of how this looks like for you and on of how it looks like for others so I can have a better look into this? 

Thanks so much!

Since the paper contains sensitive information I cannot. The error is just the images and thumbails NOT showing, like the url/hosting is broken.

I see; thanks for pointing this out @noteimporta.

Would you like me to reach out via your Dropbox email address to have a further look internally?

Thanks for providing me with a visual too @noteimporta!

As I'll need to investigate with all of our tools at my disposal, I'd suggest taking this to email. I can open up a ticket from my end for you if you like. Just let me know if I can use the email address that's associated with your Community's profile and we'll take it from there.
