  1. transferring annotations

    Hi. I'm a professor and I created a BoxNote with a text I want my students to annotate collaboratively. I added some annotations, comments, and hyperlinks to get them started. Then I copied this BoxNote to another folder for a second section of the class. The hyperlinks transferred, but the annotations and comments did not. It would be cool if BoxNote supported the total transfer of material in a text, not just the hyperlinks. AND I can't copy and paste all those annotations so now I have to type it all up from scratch. That's a drag. Please design a…

  2. Using number formatting breaks if you don't want an inserted space or image to be numbered

    When I try to format a document using numbering, the sequence breaks if you don't continue the format. In Word, you can restart at 1 or continue numbering if you have a new section of numbers. This forces us to use bullets instead. Sometimes, we'd actually like to use the option of numbering when we are numbering steps.

  3. Copy button in Box Notes Shared Link

    When you get a shared link in Box, it automatically copies it and has a "copy" button front and center - would love the same thing for Box Notes.

  4. Ability to attach a metadata template to a note template

    We would like a way of creating a note template bound to a metadata template. I’ve followed the instructions to create the template and to attach metadata. However, when creating a note using that custom template, there are no metadata attached by default. I want to avoid having to add the metadata template each time after creating a note.

  5. Rethink Box Notes as a Collaborative Tool

    Many of the comments about Box Notes, and the shortcomings that make them seem only marginally useful to me, arise from them being treated/implemented as something totally "other", compared to other file types that one might load into Box.

    Unlike other files, Box acts as if Notes all belong together rather than in the user's folder structure, and they have their own type of page or tab that is confusingly different from the standard Box interface, rather than simply opening up in an editing window if the user wants to make changes. An editing window would be much more intuitive,…

  6. Fix the copy/paste feature so that random spaces are not removed from the pasted content

    When copying from one Box Note to another (and probably from other rich text sources also), numerous spaces are removed from the pasted text. Often times, spaces are removed immediately following hyperlinks, but also from between random words throughout the text, requiring a complete, time-consuming review and cleanup of the new content.

  7. Windows App Custom Disctionary for Spell Check

    Using the Box Notes Windows desktop app is awesome. A huge pain point is the spell-check feature because it lacks a custom dictionary feature. In many cases, my notes are riddled with little red spelling error-underlines because the application doesn't allow me to accept and remember frequently used words. Examples include names, places, people, companies, products, etc. The list could go on but I fell I've effectively communicated my concern.

  8. Add justify alignment option to Box Notes

    It is possible to align content to the left, right and centre but there is no ability to justify content which is very common for many types of documents.

  10. Customize location of new Box Note upon creation

    Users shall be able to create a new box note while navigating through folders and have this note save back to the current location within their account.

    User shall be able to create a new note from a template, and have it save back to the folder they are navigating in.

    Currently, when notes are created via web app, they are saved back to a "My Box Notes" folder. This is not always useful, especially when using templates. Templates are likely to be reused by users and saved in multiple folders, not in a single Box Notes folder.

  11. Ability to add attachments to Box Notes

    As a collaborative editing tool, attaching related materials would be useful in many situations (today, we upload the attachments & link to them, but this presents access limitations & additional steps.)

    This is essentially already allowed with the upload ability of image types, but given file level collaboration, having attachments would solve numerous issues our teams are starting to encounter.
