Hey there, I'm having an issue when uploading images from disk to a Paper: they break in a few seconds after I've uploaded them (see screenshot). Could you please advice? Cheers!

Been happening with to me (as well) since yesterday. Some images stay while others become broken. Doesn't matter if it's a jpeg or png.  Please help

Hello,

 

I am seeing the same issue on a dropbox paper document I've created.

 

I have a document with lots of images, and about half the images that say "User-uploaded-image" instead of showing the actual image.

 

Here's what the image looks like
Divi and VV one year in – Dropbox Paper 2017-09-02 13-13-20.png

 

How do I restore my original images?

 

Thanks,

Vaibhav

This is still an issue for me. I receive the "user-uploaded image: image.png" message intermittently. Then they come back, but this is not good when using Paper for presentations in my classes, even if the images come back later. It happens for images pasted from the web via links and images uploaded from my own computer.

 

unlike the OP, my messages just say genericaly "image.png." It doesn't say the actual filename of the image.

Hey there @KosK - Welcome to our Community!

 

Thanks for letting us know about this. Can you please let me know if this is persistent on other browsers as well? Have you tried clearing your browser's cache or an incognito window as a first step to see if this is a browser specific problem?

 

If you still get this error, send us a screenshot of it and we'll take it from there. 

 

Thanks in advance!
