Hi all,

I wanted to update you all that the team are looking into this idea for Dropbox Paper on desktop. I'll let you know as soon as I've more information. 

We really appreciate your suggestions - thank you and keep them coming!

And don't forget the Linux version.  I think we are at a "Tipping Point" (see news on China) where Linux will finally be more popular as a desktop OS.

+1 +1 +1 I need to open the dropbox paper documents when I am in a plane, or a place where there is no internet. This inability is prohibiting me to read my important documents when I need them most (in fields with no internet). I am not sure why would you release offline version on iphone and android but not on PC and mac (and linux). Can't you just open the app using the project catalyst?

+1  With a desktop version, I would drop all other word processors in favor of Paper.

This is a no brainer, especially with DropBox already having a desktop app for DropBox files, Paper users should have access to their documents from the same desktop app and should be able to view/edit loaded versions of the documents.

I'm currently exploring if Dropbox paper can be used in Buidling Construction industry (with forms, construction monitoring, recurring reports, etc.). But with the lack of desktop offline, documentation will be a problem.

On the flip side, imagine if Dropbox Paper suddenly enters into a bigger industry and not just about sharing ideas, but ultimately, a new Document Editor in a different format. That is a game changer right there!

I was thinking: “This is going to be my go-to note and task management app” until my Internet connection got cut out, which happens quite randomly.

 

Anyway, Paper is such a pleasure to look at that I can't give up on it.

Still not useable. No desktop offline feature, no Apple Pencil support, no clear interaction Dropbox ...

I'm done with it.

Could be absolutely awesome, but just in my dreams...

The offline mode for Mac is in private beta right now. It's amazing, and I can't wait for the Windows version!
