What is Dropbox Paper?: It is a simple collaboration feature found in the left sidebar of your Dropbox dashboard.

Create a new doc and add just about anything to it and Share it with others. Nothing revolutionary really other than it’s done in that cool Dropbox way. Dropbox knows that we use a lot of different tools and programs to create and if you can store it on your Dropbox, you can share it on Paper.

Drop in videos with YouTube link. It is setup like Medium (maybe why I love it 🤓). Just look for the little + symbol and select what you want: Add tables, charts, code, Dropbox files or just write. Write some text and highlight for formatting (ya know, like Medium :D).

Collaboration: Share with anyone and comment in real time or export it. Markdown supported, too.

Dropbox Paper does what Google Docs and many other document sharing services does. But Dropbox does things in their own way and it always just seems to work a little better. Try it for yourself.

Where is it?: Simply open up your Dropbox on the web. Look in the left toolbar for Paper. Create a new doc. Name it and Go!

Simple is as simple does.

Enjoy!
