Resize images within Paper docs

New member | Level 2

Hello, 

I am posting to request image resizing abilities in Dropbox Paper. I love the app but images are so large (especially when they're in portrait orientation) and it makes my documents look strange when I export. I think this would be a really helpful tool for everyone using Paper. Thanks!

It's a nice program but there seems to be a lot of common sense stuff missing from Paper:

 

-Resize images

-Center text easily

-Linking files as just links and not completley showing them in the Paper document (like linking a .doc file).

-Different colors, etc.

 

I have to go back to Google Docs for now since they at least have some of those basic features. It's a shame because the Paper UI is so nice.

A hearty plus-one! I consistently run into this, especially the fact that I basically cannot use portrait-oriented images in files at all.

Just adding my voice to say that resizing images is a feature that would hopefully be relatively simple (it alreay happens as noted when doing other functions) and extremely helpful.

Thank you for your idea, this is not something the team is working on right now. 

While we can’t take every idea forward we do regularly re-review and will update you if anything changes!
