I am using Dropbox Paper.

I have a question about one of the features.

When you paste a link from your desktop, a link preview is automatically created.

However, when I paste the link on mobile (Android), the link preview does not seem to be created. Is there a way to make it?
Is the feature not there yet?

Hey there @dodorian, let's jump right into this! 

 

Could you please provide me with an example of a URL that you're having issues with? Have you also tried adding any other link to see if you are able to have the preview appear?

 

 Furthermore, could you check that you don't have any space added before embedding the link into the Paper doc?

 

Let me know what you find!

Not all links I paste into the Dropbox app on my phone are generated automatically (tried about 20+ times) They are generated fine on my windows desktop. (There are some sites I've tested that don't generate well. I would rather have the ability to drag the link and add a button to convert it.

Hey @dodorian, would you mind clarifying your device's exact OS at the moment? 

 

Also, do you use the Paper app or the Dropbox app when creating Paper files on your mobile?
