  4. Add "expand all" flag for annotations

    Currently, all point/comment annotations are collapsed by default.

    If a user leaves many annotations on a multi page document, this can lead to some point annotations being missed.

    There should be an expand all option to mitigate this.

  6. PDF Bookmark for Box Preview

    When a PDF files is viewed through a standard browser plugin, a hyperlink can be created to directly navigate to a specific bookmark, but this functionality is missing in the Box Preview.

    For instance, if a professor wants to make a textbook reference (to a specific chapter/page number), it would prevent confusion and save the end user from having to scroll through the pages.

  8. Visual Versions: Preview prior versions directly in the web app

    Concurrent editing feature in Office Online can result in 200+ versions of a document within a matter of hours.

    There is no easy way to identify which version we want to roll back to without downloading previous versions.

    We would like a preview of earlier versions to be available in the web app - does not need to be a full html5 but maybe an instant preview?

    Thank you for the submission! This is not planned.

    We don’t see enough customer demand for this yet, and supporting every additional content type takes a significant amount of engineering time and effort.

    We suggest using the Open With Preview framework which should give third-parties (the company in this case) the ability to integrate a viewer for these file types as part of Preview.

  13. New 3D Preview File Type: CAD Files

    Box's native 3D Preview feature does not currently support common CAD file types such as....idw.ipt.iam.dwf .dwfxREQUEST: Natively support 3D preview in Box for these common CAD file types.

  15. Live update of comments while in preview mode

    We'd like to have comments from other users automatically post & update real time for other collaborators who have the document open in Preview to see. Currently users have to refresh the screen or exit and re-enter the file to see a new comment if they are already in Preview mode

  16. New Font Request: San Francisco (Official Apple + iOS + macOS Font)

    San Francisco is the font used for ALL Apple collateral (and is the official system font for iOS and macOS too). However it previews as Courier New in Box currently, which means that users will not be able to accurately preview the design of their document/file.

    More information on the San Francisco font: https://developer.apple.com/fonts/

  20. Support Embedded Audio/Video when Previewing PowerPoint (.ppt/.pptx) Files

    Presentations sometimes have embedded audio/video, and when viewing the file in Box Preview, these embedded media components do not render/play.

    This request is to allow this embedding to be rendered and exposed in Box Preview.
