  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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. 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.

  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.

    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...

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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. 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.

  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.
