thanks so much for taking our use case into consideration. In the meantime, we've tried many workarounds, none of which can support live updates.
I've discovered that Paper automatically unfurls pasted links from anywhere which is nice, so I've tried publishing a link from Lucidchart, and pasting it there. Although it does set the image, it seems to cache it, and not update its contents as the diagram lives on in Lucidchart.
We're huge fans of Paper, as it's like a marriage between Google Docs and Medium, so it's perfect for internal and external knowledge sharing and collaboration. And as for diagramming, we've recently signed up for Lucidchart's trial as it seems to be the only service out there which supports cross-platform collaboration (desktop, tablet, mobile), in-context commenting (much like Paper's comments work, but on shapes) and a vast library of shapes. The only thing missing are these live embeds into our knowledge base.
Should you require any additional info in regards to our workflow or use-cases, please just let me know!

We've been trying out Paper for a while now, and are absolutely loving it. With the new mobile apps, we're ready to migrate our entire knowledge base over to Paper.
As many of our documents consist of diagrams, it would be so great if we could directly embed the Lucidchart diagrams in Paper documents, much like Youtube or any other direct media embeds work.
Currently, we're exporting static images, but then we lose live updates, and diagram interactivity (which is quite useful in large and complex diagrams). Since Lucidchart natively supports embeddable exports, an integration of this kind seems natural.
I'm sure we're not the only ones with such use-cases so I thought a feature request is appropriate.
There are many wikis out there which support these embeds, most notable of which is Notion, but we prefer immediacy of input we find in Paper's web and mobile apps over the usual wiki's formality and complexity. In an ever-evolving environment, everything's chronically out-of-date if the knowledge base itself isn't a place of in-context collaboration and content creation by both desktop and mobile users.
Thanks so much for hearing us out!

we've been hopelessly searching for an intra-company knowledge sharing platform suitable for a startup environment (i.e. immediacy and practicality over formality). I guess the best way to describe it is like Medium for internal use. We've dumped formal Wikis for Evernote Business because of its focus on immediacy and ease of input from wherever, then had no choice but to transition from Evernote to Quip as we couldn't live without actual collaboration on documents and in-line commenting. As a previous commenter posted, the *only* reason we're using Quip over Paper is the support for mobile apps. We can absolutely use Paper through the existing web app on desktops, but for practical and immediate mobile use a dedicated native app (or a well-designed integration with the current Dropbox mobile app) is an absolute requirement (for direct mobile notifications, document reviews as well as inputs of both comments and actual content).
Overall, we love Paper's UX, and with the recent addition of support for in-line LaTex Math, mobile support is literally the only thing stopping us to jump ship from Quip over to Paper.
Thanks for taking the time to hear us out!
