Bulk Import Docs

Helpful | Level 6



I would like to be able to bulk import documents into dropbox paper.


Specifically markdown files and would be nice to maintain formatting. e.g ## Header would become a H2.


This is currently the only thing stopping me from moving over to paper and as there doesn't seem to be any easy way of moving over existing docs, I'm sure it is a problem for other people too.

Apologies for the duplication. There is another discussion on this at the URL below, but as it's a little old (from 2016) it would be great to know if the scope for Paper has evolved at all.

Am looking to find out if there is any scope for importing notebooks from OneNote or other services into Dropbox Paper? It would help keep data in a single location, rather than chopping and changing from one tool to another.


Hey @EddAshforthGV, the dev team is working on implementing additional improvements, but we don’t have a timeline to share yet. 
In any case, I’ve made sure to add your feedback to this as well and share your comments with them for review. 
If you have any other thoughts you’d like me to forward or questions you’d like to ask, don’t hesitate to give me a shout. grinning face with smiling eyes

Does this mean that the feature I asked about will be worked on and included in time, or that generally there are some improvements coming which not include this?

Hey again, @EddAshforthGV
In general, the dev team is working on and reviewing different features constantly in order to improve user experience. 
I can’t give a definitive timeline on when something like this will be worked on or, if it’s being worked on, when it’ll be released, but I’ve made sure to pass your comments along to them for future consideration. 
I hope this helps to some extent. nerd face

Has any progress been made with this?  I would like to import my OneNote notebooks into Paper, as well.

Would love to specify a "Notes" folder from DropBox as my Paper entry point. Either a folder of Markdown or plain text would be excellent.
