  1. [Support preview of ".xct" files] Support preview of ".xct" files

    We use DocuWorks for our business.
    At this time, the Box preview supports ".xdw" and ".xbd", but unfortunately ".xct" is not yet supported.

    A similar request was submitted on the following BoxPulse, which was "Delivered" as of 09/2022, but only the ".xct" is still not in preview.
    https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778-help-shape-the-future-of-box/suggestions/39875047-preview-files-about-xdw-xbd-and-xct-in-box-for-io

    Therefore, we need to register Fujifilm's source files with AppleStore in order to use DocuWorks from Box for EMM.
    It is very inconvenient that ".xct" cannot be previewed when using DocuWorks, so please add it to the preview support list.


    弊社では業務にDocuWorksを利用しています。
    現時点では、Boxのプレビューでは「.xdw」と「.xbd」に対応していますが、残念ながら「.xct」には未対応です。

    以下のBoxPulseで類似の要望が投稿されており、
    2022年09月の時点で「配信済み」になっていますが、現在も「.xct」のみプレビュー対象になっていません。

    そのため、弊社ではBox for EMMからDocuWorksを利用するにあたって、AppleStoreに富士フィルムのソースファイルを登録する必要が生じています。
    DocuWorksを利用するにあたり、「.xct」がプレビューできないのは大変不便なのでプレビューのサポート対象に加えてください。

  2. Request: Improvement of preview of high resolution movies

    Request: Improvement of preview of high resolution movie in Box

    Currently, when users preview movie files( .mov) in Box web app, sevearal issues happens depending on the files

    1. Unable to read the preview screen

    2. The preview stops suddenly in the middle of the movie file and unable to start again.

    According to the support ticket, the risk to happen the above is likely to increase when the movie file is relatively high quality/ high resolution. Actually the issues happen when we preview movie files which is 8 minute-long and 13 GB/file. So temporal workaround is to tune it and make…

  3. Support preview of script files such as Powershell .ps1 and .psm files

    Preview fails on Box Web for Powershell scripts having a ps1 or other related extension.
    Ideally this would allow one to look at the current as well as prior versions of the file in Box Web without having to download each version separately.

  4. Default PDF Preview Size

    Can we please set the default zoom percentage on a PDF that is being shared and viewed using Box? When you view a PDF, it would be great to be able set it so each page or spread fills the viewable screen.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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

  10. Preview password protected documents

    We receive hundreds of password protected documents (excel, word, pdf) from our clients. For security purposes, we want to avoid storing confidential document on local PC and instead view them on the Web.

  12. want to prevent Excel from moving files on the preview screen.

    want to prevent Excel from moving files on the preview screen.

    In the Excel preview screen, pressing left and right ([←] and [→]) on the keyboard scrolls the file if a cell is already selected.
    However, when the preview screen is open and no cells are selected, it switches to another file.

    It is confusing for users that the keyboard behaves differently depending on the file and cell selection status. We request the ability to change settings to prevent file switching.

    Excelのプレビュー画面でのファイル移動をさせないようにしたい

    Excelのプレビュー画面で、キーボードの左右([←][→])を押すと、セルを選択した後であれば、スクロールされます。
    しかし、プレビュー画面開いてセル未選択の状態だと別のファイルに切り替わります。

    ファイルやセル選択状況によって、キーボードのの挙動が異なるのはユーザーにとって紛らわしいため
    ファイルの切り替えをさせないように設定変更ができる機能を要望します。

  13. preview for .skp (SketchUp)

    SketchUp is widely used 3D modeling application. It would be very good if SketchUp files (.skp) be previewed in Box so that various 3D model can be viewed, especially with iPad.

  14. I want you to support high-quality videos such as 2160p and 4320p.

    The improvement in image quality of photographic equipment in recent years is remarkable.
    As a result, when previewing images and videos uploaded to Box, there is a concern that the maximum value of 1080p (Full HD) cannot be previewed.
    If you can preview data with higher image quality (2160p/4320p) than 1080p (full HD), you will be able to share information with high image quality and clarity.

    2160pや4320pなどの高画質な動画にも対応してほしい。 

    近年の撮影機器の画質向上は著しいです。
    これによりBoxにアップロードした画像や動画をプレビューする際に最大値の1080p(フルHD)ではプレビューできない事懸念されます。
    1080p(フルHD)よりも高画質( 2160p・4320p)なデータがプレビューできるようになると、高画質かつ鮮明に情報を共有することができます。

  15. Integrated 360° image viewer

    Integrate a 360-degree viewer into the preview to store, share and display 360° images with the possibility to pan and zoom around. Box is lacking this option right now and when uploading 360 images to Box they become flattened and distorted.

    Here is an example of a 360° image: https://theta360.com/s/k5R3wbxz2ktwvKyBPpgdOFCwW

  16. The new formatting just implemented is horrible, why did you change it? :(

    Go back to the formatting you had, please. This new grid view is less zoomed in so it really serves as a less optimal preview!

    Please consider allowing more zoomed in grid view images like it was up until about an hour ago! THANK YOU!!

  18. Speed displayed in grid view

    I would like to request an improvement so that even if it is displayed in the grid view, it will be previewed in a few seconds.
    It takes time to find the desired image file in the grid view, which is inefficient.
    For example, if you display a folder with a large number of files in the grid view, it will be previewed little by little every few files, and it took about 2 minutes to display 374 files.

  20. Highlight Text and Translate the word

    Inside the preview, it would be great when I highlight a text in a file, it would automatically translate the word into a language thats is set on the browser. For example highlighting an English word and translating it into Japanese.

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.
