People having these two major issues using the Dropbox paper

Reason 1.
Like if you are writing something on Dropbox paper, and suddenly you faced a network interruption, or internet speed goes down, you can’t just keep continue write but wait till the network establishes again. And thoughts don’t stay they fades. Dropbox paper won’t allow writing in offline mode, that is okay, as they have some advanced features like collaborating a doc with other peoples and showing real-time changes to everyone who have access to the document.

But there are many other similar apps that let you write without the internet, and once the internet is back, unsaved changes will sync.

Meaning if you added them directly to Dropbox Paper, you have to reupload them somewhere else in order to use them in a blog post.

Even if you don’t have a blog, which is okay, not every single person out there has happens to run a goddamn blog. Sharing images may not sometimes work, outside the Dropbox paper.
