Share page in presentation view mode

Helpful | Level 6

Hi Dropbox!
I think it can be cool if I can share doc such as page in presentation mode. Sometimes I want to share doc such as a note without interface. What do you think about it?

Hi there!

If I'm understanding correctly, is your request to share an element of Dropbox Paper in presentation mode? You're in luck! This feature is currently available. View instructions for using presentation mode in Paper here.

Please let us know if you have follow up questions.

Thanks,

Alexis

Hey @Artem F. - I see what you mean. You can't do that in Paper at the moment, but we offer a feature called Showcase that will allow you to share some beautiful pages with others who don't necessarily have a Dropbox account. Have a look here!

Ok, thank you. But can you consider to add this feature in the future?

Thank you for the suggestion, @Artem F.! We'll be happy to pass your feedback along.

With that, could you please elaborate on what you're specifically looking for that Showcase doesn't offer in the workaround Ed has listed above? The more you can share about your use case - industry, what you're hoping to achieve, how this might look for you and the team - the more we'll be able to help. slightly smiling face Thank you so much!

I run Paper Doc from a computer which doesn't have account on Dropbox. Although I can view content in the doc, I can't run it in the presentation mode. 

I'm using paper for making presentations for our team meetings so it would be cool to be able to start the presentation mode without loggin in on a guest comp

Hi @Artem F. - Thank you for elaborating! Good news. You do not need to be logged into Dropbox on your desktop in order to view Paper docs. In fact, at this time we only view Paper docs in the web browser and we do not access Paper docs on desktop. 

I see that you're hoping to not login on a guest computer, however in order to view Paper docs on any computer, you will need to login. In order to view and present a Paper doc on a guest computer, simply visit https://paper.dropbox.com/ and login with your Paper account. To confirm, you will need to use a web browser and you will need internet access. 

Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thanks!

Thank you, @AlexisL
I know that it's possible to view Paper docs in unlogged state. But I also want to be able to use a Paper doc in unlogged state on a guest computer. Do you plan to realize this feature in the nearest future?
