Dropbox Paper update brings new customization options for PDF, PowerPoint, and Illustrator previews

Dropbox Paper is receiving an update today with new ways to customize the file preview embeds for a variety of file types.



Dropbox Paper is the company’s team-focused, collaborative software. This past spring we saw the software offer the ability to create custom document templates. Now, on the heels of Dropbox upgrading its storage tiers at no extra cost, Dropbox Paper has launched new customization options for PDF, PowerPoint, and Adobe Illustrator file preview embeds for even smoother team collaboration.

The update lets users select portions of content to highlight from multiple sources to help streamline their team’s work.

Here’s how Dropbox describes the new changes:

Collaborate in one place

Sometimes, it’s hard to present your ideas the way you want because your content—and all the conversations around it—can get scattered in different places. Now you and your team can seamlessly collect andcustomize the way you display content from different tools. So everyone can easily give and get feedback, all in one place, right within your Paper doc.

Keep linked files up to date

Exporting files and taking screenshots can be a grind when you need to make a little edit. That’s especially true for collaborative or iterative work, like a working doc, where an image can get outdated, irrelevant, and frustrating very quickly. But with Paper, you can link to files stored in your Dropbox, and the previews in Paper will always stay up to date.

Customize what you share

Now Paper makes it easy to display only the important parts of the files you add—whether it’s a page, slide, or artboard. When you paste a shared link into a Paper doc, you’ll see a new option that will let you select specific pages from that file. You can then zoom in on specific sections of those pages.
