Can I prevent the toolbar from appearing on the bottom of the page on my Paper docs?

Helpful | Level 6

an annoying toolbar started to appear on all my documents today, on the bottom of all pages. anyone knows how to fix it and set it how it was? i have no idea how i chaged it. the toolbar was running perfecly until yesterday, now it's a mess -- it's far and always on screen.

it's this thing!

it was supposed to appear next to the mouse when i click in a page, but now it's stuck below the page always there. it's quite distractive when i'm writing and i can't find any way to remove it while writing or put it up. it's really weird.

Hey there @Paulgi, sorry for the tardy response.

As there isn't an option to disable the toolbar from your Paper docs, I'll log this as a feature request - thank you for your feedback on this one. 

Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to add.

the toolbar was running perfectly until about 2 days ago, now it seems bugged. when i select a word it still appears correctly next to my mouse pointer, but then when i'm writing the thing doesn't disappear and goes to the bottom of the page.

Yes, this sounds correct as this is the way the toolbar behaves since 2 days ago.

In any case, I'll make sure your comments are transferred to the relevant team to inform the ongoing development of Paper. Once again, thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback about this - it's pretty much appreciated. 

If there's anything else you'd like to add, don't hesitate to let me know; I'm only a post away @Paulgi!

really? why did they destroy something that was working great? i really don't get. O_o

well... i'll try to block it uBlock or something. the new tool is extremelly intrusive and the main reason i picked paper was because there wasn't much trash on screen, unline the other collaborative tools. looks like developers are changing that.

Good Morning Dropbox community,

This Toolbar on the documents is extremely annoying. It's coming up on my ipad. I can't contioulsy read my documents due to this toolbar on the bottom left of all my documents. Is there really no way to disable this?
