  3. 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.

  5. ID3 Tag Artwork Preview for MPEG .mpeg and all audio files supported in Box Content Preview feature

    Currently .mpeg is not supported in Box Content Preview Feature --yet the app can show Artwork of an .mpeg audio files. That said feature is desirable, let's bring that functionality to the Box Content Preview. So while streaming a file, user can also see the Artwork contained in ID3 information on the file.

  6. Preview Adobe Illustrator 2020 Files

    Use Adobe Illustrator 2020 file preview to show quick view or preview in file browser on Box. Rather than this message "We’re sorry, the preview didn’t load. Please re-upload the file or contact Box support." Please? Pretty please?

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Better contrast & saturation on Preview

    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.

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

    *1)
    a) DocuWorks Document
    extension : xdw
    MIME type : application/vnd.fujixerox.docuworks
    b) DocuWorks Binder
    extension :…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. More accurate presentation on progress bar of preview

    Preview of a large file can take long time for rendering, and currently progress bar goes from 0 to 90% quite quickly, but never progresses from that point. This is misleading and we want progress bar to give more accurate presentation on how much longer we need to wait for preview to be loaded.

  19. 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.
