  1. Being able to preview PPTs in notes view

    Currently, when you click on a PPT document in box, the preview only shows slide view but it would be super helpful to be able to see it in notes view in the preview so that we don't have to fully open the document or download it to see all the content within the PPT

  2. Support preview for macro enabled MS Office files. Also add preview support for .jcl files for z/OS.

    Many types of MS Office files are already supported by Box Preview. Not sure why adding the macro-enabled file support has not been done.

    JCL (Job Control Language) files are used extensively in z/OS for many different types of work. It would be nice to store them in Box with the .jcl suffix to distinguish them from run of the mill .txt files.

  3. Links on PowerPoint slides are shown with yellow overlay. Want to change this setting

    Would like the ability to change the way linked objects on PowerPoint slides are shown in Box.com. Currently, hover on a linked object displays a transparent yellow overlay. Suggest this is changed to darken or lighten content, or outline. Best case: let the content creator determine the best method to display their linked content.

  5. Make PDF preview show more accurate - Better contrast & saturation

    A better representation of the PDF preview would be helpful for designers when sending files for clients to preview.

    Clients often just look at the preview and have questions about the color when the download has the correct representation.

  6. support the preview of other types of compressed files such as .7z, .TAR, and .XIP

    It's very helpful that Box now supports previewing Zip Files as noted at https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044196713-Previewing-Zip-Files, and we would like to know if there are plans to support the preview of other types of compressed files such as .7z, .TAR, and .XIP?

  8. High quality watermarked PDF downloads.

    I'm not sure where this should go, but the current feature that allows downloads to be watermarked is great, except the quality of the downloaded document is not great. It is very difficult to read because the resolution changes when the watermark is applied. In fact, it's so bad in our case that the service is not usable and we have to find a different service to watermark PDFs for our downloaders. It would be great if you could find a way to improve the quality of the PDF when a watermark is applied. Thank you.

  9. Get the possibility to translate previewed document

    My company is landed in many countries and by the way have several languages.
    In Google Drive there is an option which let the viewer to translate the previewed document.
    It might be cool to get a similar functionality to help with specifics languages like Russian, Chinese ans so on...
    Thank You to consider this helpful functionality.

  10. New Preview Font Request : Eisai

    We adopt the "HGP Soei Kaku Gothic UB" as a template font of Powerpoint in our enterprise.
    Since the font above can not be displayed in the Box online preview, many dissatisfied voices are heard from users.
    Because of this situation, we cannot expand the use of Box at this time.
    We strongly request to add Japanese fonts included with MS Office (Windows), including the above font("HGP Soei Kaku Gothic UB"), to Box Powerpoint online preview.

  13. make the current page more obvious in the ppt preview panel

    In the (ppt) preview the current page in the left panel has a rather innocuous grey border that is difficult to spot, so it's too easy to loose track of which page I'm looking at in the overall document.

    It would be better if it used a brighter accent colour, or maybe change the colour of the entire whitespace around the current page.

  14. 0 Second .mov files do not preview

    If a .mov file is 0 seconds in length, it fails to preview on Box.com and mobile applications. iOS for new versions defaults pictures to this file format. Therefore, many pictures taken on newer iPhones do not preview in Box.

  15. Display the contents of plain text files in monospaced font

    Display (or give the option to display) the contents of plain text files in a monospaced font. The content preview used to do this, but it doesn't anymore. All plain text file contents are being converted to a sans serif font for display in Content Preview. This makes it difficult to read code files, for example, because serif and sans serif fonts are proportional and the text does not line up properly.

  16. I would like the kind of functionality in BOX that I get with GoogleDocs

    My main input is that I would like the kind of functionality in BOX that I get with GoogleDocs – in particular the ability to work in a document at the same time, see who is editing the document at a time, track their changes, revert to newer versions. In box, the work is linear and when you are working at the same time and save (if you haven’t lockd people out), it makes another copy. Seems so slow compared to GoogleDoc speed.

  17. Improve annotations for Box Previewer UI element

    One of the main feature of our proof-of-concept utilizes Box’s concept of collaborations. We want to demonstrate beyond the capability of the basic file/folder sharing by utilizing the Box Previewer UI element and enabling the annotation feature. The annotation is such a great feature to enhance business and client relationship in the digital space. We implemented this feature however we found there are some challenges and we are hoping Box can help us find a solution to create a better experience.


    1. We were able to activate the annotation but only within app users. Both our employee entities and customer entities…

  18. View only share link to have a print option

    When you give someone a share link to view only, it would be really useful if there was a print option as is available for normal previews.

  19. A method/feature to be able to preview each version on wide screen

    Regarding versioning – We can preview each old version but it reverted to the current version once we click Hide Sidebar ([>]).

  20. Treat .todo files as plain text

    There is a plugin for Sublime Text that lets you create .todo files for task lists. These are just plain text files so it would be great if they could be previewed and treated as plain text. I'm mainly interested in being able to use the versioning to see the history of these files.
