  1. 3D/CAD File preview zoom function

    <improvement>
    Improve zoom/enlargement in 3D file preview function

    With the current 3D file preview function of Box, the display of the 3D model is small, and there is a limit to the distance that can be brought close to the 3D model even when zooming, so I would like to improve.

    <Use case>
    - BIM/CIM-based 3D CAD data can be easily displayed on a browser, which can be expected to improve communication with relevant parties and productivity.
    - The viewer of a CAD maker has high performance and high affinity with CAD data, but it has a large burden such…

  2. Support more preview fonts

    Zinc Group uses fonts that are currently not supported for Box web UI preview, Klavika and Stag. Since these fonts are used extensively in the company's approved document templates, they wish to have them added to the list of supported fonts for preview.

  3. I want the ability to add comments to the version history

    Now in the version history you will find the version number (for example: V1,V2...) is currently listed in the version history, the version number (for example: V1, V2...).
    We check the contents of V1, V2... in the preview and restore the version.

    However, as the number of versions increases, it is difficult to find the exact version you need, so please add the ability to add a simple note in addition to the version number.

    【日本語】------------------------------------------------------------
    現在バージョン履歴では、バージョンナンバー(for example:V1,V2...)が記載されています。
    私たちは、V1、V2...の内容をプレビューで都度確認し、バージョンを復元しています。

    しかし、バージョン数が多くなってくると、必要なバージョンを的確に見つけるのは難しいため、バージョン番号のほかに簡易なメモを併記できる機能を追加してください。

  4. Preview files about xdw, xbd and xct in Box for iOS.

    Please support xdw, xbd and xct files in Box for iOS.

    Box for iOS can preview files supported by Box, such as PDF.
    However, Box for iOS can not preview xdw, xbd and xct files (*1) for the following reasons.

    DocuWorks Viewer Light (iOS) (*2) implements Quick Look Preview Extension.
    Thus, an app can preview xdw, xbd and xct files if the app implements QLPreviewController.
    Although Box for iOS has already implemented QLPreviewController, previewing xdw, xbd and xct files are not supported by Box.

    a) DocuWorks Document
    extension : xdw
    MIME type : application/vnd.fujixerox.docuworks
    b) DocuWorks Binder

  6. Thumbnail previews of documents should show file type: docx vs pdf

    The new BOX.Com format no longer shows Word Docs with a Symbol vs PDF with
    a different symbol.

    i.e. they have removed the prior, very visual, cues as to document type.
    We can still see EXCEL symbol, but hopefully that will not be lost

    This is a problem for us since we have many documents with long names, and
    can't always see the final extension
    Not to mention visual cues are exceedingly useful and helpful.

  7. Default PDF Preview Size

    Can we please set the default zoom percentage on a PDF that is being shared and viewed using Box? When you view a PDF, it would be great to be able set it so each page or spread fills the viewable screen.

  10. I would really love to be able to see and use my PDF bookmarks from within the Box preview service

    I have large PDF files that are stored on Box. Rather than having to always download the files I would like to use the bookmarks within the PDF to navigate even if I am in the Box Preview function.

    Thank you for considering this enhancement

  11. enlargement of previewer movie over 100%

    Though Box previewer has the full screen mode, further enlargement beyond the screen size cannot be realized.

    Share screens of Zoom can be enlarged up to 300% by participant's manipulation. This function is convenient to selectively read a document written in small texts.

    I wish the legibility when a recorded movie of Zoom is redistributed via the Box viewer.

  12. open a file in a defined app in a folder

    i store files in a folder that are simple text files that can be viewed by any text editor. your preview option will not allow me to view them online simply because the extension is not txt.

    sometimes its ".dat" or something else, but its still plain text. I should be able to select the viewer in the preview option and not have to download a text file to view it. your ms office word viewer would even allow me to see it.

    thanks

  13. convert

    Is there a way to convert the documents to pdf files in Box instead of downloading them and convert them manually to PDF file? If no, can you consider adding it to a setting where this option is available?

  15. I want to name or add descriptions to the different versions of a file

    I have some documents with hundreds of versions. Right now, though, the only versions I would ever refer to are those uploaded in the past few weeks, when I remember the changes made and have context for why the file was updated. Looking back on new versions a year ago, I have no way of knowing what changes were made, what versions were major changes and what were marginal. The ability to preview prior versions is nice, but without the ability to review changes to the text, I would spend hours trying to understand what was different about a prior…

  16. Preview Fortran file extensions such as .f

    Would like to preview Fortran file extensions such as .f even if they were simply treated in the same manner as a .txt extension.

  17. permanently purge file version history

    Hello,

    We have a use case that we use box as a temporary storage location in a workflow. But once the workflow is finished, we would like to purge the information but "keep" the same boxfileid. We thought by deleting the version history, we would have achieved this. But it turns out the deleted version history is restorable.

    I am wondering if it is possible to
    (1) optionally make a file "not" able to store version history
    (2) or optionally permanently delete a version

  18. Box Preview should not show hidden layers in PDFs

    When PDFs have a hidden layer, Box currently still shows the hidden layer in the Box Preview.

    We provide people with Box Links that only allow them preview abilities. This means that people could be making business decisions based on invalid preview content. We need to have the preview show the same contents (although they can be rendered differently) as the download contents.

  19. Option to disable thumbnail preview entirely or for certain file types

    Thumbnail previews of text based documents are not useful. I had a user reach out about this. they would rather have the icon preview for docx/pdf since the thumbnail is too small to give any info.

  20. SVG thumbnails corrupted

    Hi,

    We are using box to store loads of SVG images of apartment floor plans.
    When looking at a folder containing these images, the thumbnails are filled with large black areas, making it impossible to make out anything.

    From what I can see, the svg image preview is a .jpg image, so when the thumbnail is generated it probably fills some transparent areas with black.

    Would it be possible to just use the SVG as a thumbnail instead? in our case all the generated jpg thumbnails are actually larger than the original svg.

    I would provide an image / example…
