Published on April 25, 2017
Sometimes you need more than text to tell your story. Whether you’re illustrating your point with colorful graphs or using pictures to personalize your presentation, there are many ways to bring your doc to life. But adding photos, videos, audio files, and social media posts shouldn’t slow your creative flow.
That’s why we made it easy to embed all kinds of rich media into your Dropbox Paper docs. All you have to do is copy the URL and paste the link into your doc, and the content automatically appears on the page. Here are 8 ways to include movies, music, and movement in your Paper doc.
Paper makes it easy to view videos inline and place comments right next to the embed.
Paper can also automatically embed video content from Vimeo. Just copy the URL, paste the link into Paper, press play, and watch it right inside of your Paper doc.
SoundCloudWant to add songs or background sounds to make your storytelling more compelling? Go to your SoundCloud account, search for audio ideas, then paste the link into your Paper doc. Your team can easily add feedback about the SoundCloud link with a comment or sticker.
SpotifyPaper lets you link to songs from Spotify directly within a doc. It’s a great way for video production teams to suggest tracks for their clips, and for teams to add notes right next to the embedded clips.
