Upload markdown file to Dropbox paper (and edit)

New member | Level 2

I have a local markdown file (file.md), but I'd like to upload this and share in a Dropbox folder, and be able to edit the file in my browser using Dropbox paper--is this possible?

 

Thank you!

Hey @mjfrigaard,

So you can type in Markdown in Paper. It will automatically convert it, but I don't think you are going to be able to actually edit the "code" in Paper if that makes sense. You can upload the .md files to Dropbox, but not open them in Paper (only .txt or .docx)

I just wanted to add that you should be able to upload, share and preview a markdown (.md) file via the website, but not edit it. However, you should be able to edit it via your mobile app
 
I hope this helps to some extent! grinning face with smiling eyes

Thank you @Lusil !

Will this functionality be added at some point? I'm just wondering because it's very helpful for those of us with a plain-text workflow slightly smiling face
