  1. 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.

  2. Link to Individual Pages in a Document

    Would like to have the ability to create a link to specific pages in a document. We have use cases where we need to create links to individual slides in a PowerPoint document and insert them into other documents, which OneDrive currently offers.

  3. 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

  4. 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?

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Add preview of images in WebP format

    Could you be so kind to add preview of images in WebP format?

    It is already supported by all major browsers (except for Safari, alas) https://caniuse.com/#search=webp I prefer it because its lossless mode consumes less disk space than PNG 24bit and it makes less noise than JPG in lossy mode. At present WebP images are displayed as general files within Box interface, whereas traditional JPG/PNG are displayed better as they have fancy thumbnails. Thank you in advance.

  12. Fix the Preview of Excel file versions

    Currently, previewing older versions of Excel files does not work. No matter what version is selected, the current version of the file is displayed. The causes users to think that versioning is not happening OR that they have lost all prior versions. When users download a previous version of the file, it has the correct content for that version.

  13. Box Content Preview: Allow File to be Renamed in Preview UI Element

    Files can only be renamed in the Content Explorer, requiring navigation away from the file to rename while in the Content Preview element. The request is to allow files to be renamed while previewing the file.

  15. Rotate/Zoom PDF within Preview

    Similar to image types (e.g., jpg, png, etc.) where can rotate within the Document Viewer, be able to rotate pdf within Document Viewer in Box. Reason being, sometimes images are embedded within pdf to which may need to rotate to get a better view of.

  16. Large file preview support

    A 360 degree video is taken and processed for upload to Box with the ".360" extension
    The files could potentially be very large (up to or sometimes more than 5 GB)
    With the use of Box sharing features, the 360 degree videos to be viewed/previewed by others

  17. Specify where the preview starts.

    We upload a video to the Box and previews be accessed through a shared link.
    In this case, the preview starts at the beginning of the video (0 minutes and 0 seconds).

    We'd like to be able to specify where the preview starts (e.g., 5 minutes and 0 seconds).

    We believe that being able to freely determine where to start the video preview will broaden the use of the video preview.

    We hope this feature will be added as a new feature.

    私たちはBoxに動画をアップロードし、共有リンクを介してプレビューにアクセスすることができます。
    この場合、プレビューは動画の先頭(0分0秒)から始まります。

    プレビューの開始位置(例:5分0秒)を指定できるようにしたいと考えています。

    動画プレビューの開始位置を自由に決められるようになることで、動画プレビューの利用の幅が広がると考えています。

    新機能として追加されることを期待しています。

  18. Ability to preview without comments on word file

    Currently, Box always shows comments on word file in preview.
    This would be a bit hard to see word in preview.
    Since Microsoft Word Desktop application allows you to disable comments on view, we would like Box to implement like this feature.

  19. Subtitle Format Expansion (SSA)

    Right now the only supported subtitle formats are SRT (subrip), WebVTT, mov_text, and ccaption.

    We have a large number of videos that utilize a widely utilized standard called Substation Alpha (SSA).

    Please update the product for support of the SSA format.

  20. Word Document preview blurry

    Text in Word document previews is awfully blurry and splotchy.
    Looks as though it was rendered and then rescaled to fit the window.
