Choose the default language for code blocks

New member | Level 2

I am a computer science student and use dropbox paper for my developer notes. Most of the time, my documents are centered around a specific coding language. Although the "Auto" language detection for code blocks works well for larger sections of code, it is not that accurate for smaller sections. It would be super helpful to choose the default coding language for the document.

As an example, if I have a document for Linear Recursion in C, I would like to be able to set the documents default coding language as C/C++. Every time I create a code block in that document, it would be set to C/C++ automatically. This would be a super helpful quality-fo-life addition to Dropbox Paper.
