  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.

  10. 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.

    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.

  17. 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
