  3. Specify where the preview starts.

    We upload a video to the Box and previews be accessed through a shared link.
    In this case, the preview starts at the beginning of the video (0 minutes and 0 seconds).

    We'd like to be able to specify where the preview starts (e.g., 5 minutes and 0 seconds).

    We believe that being able to freely determine where to start the video preview will broaden the use of the video preview.

    We hope this feature will be added as a new feature.

    私たちはBoxに動画をアップロードし、共有リンクを介してプレビューにアクセスすることができます。
    この場合、プレビューは動画の先頭(0分0秒)から始まります。

    プレビューの開始位置(例:5分0秒)を指定できるようにしたいと考えています。

    動画プレビューの開始位置を自由に決められるようになることで、動画プレビューの利用の幅が広がると考えています。

    新機能として追加されることを期待しています。

  4. Subtitle Format Expansion (SSA)

    Right now the only supported subtitle formats are SRT (subrip), WebVTT, mov_text, and ccaption.

    We have a large number of videos that utilize a widely utilized standard called Substation Alpha (SSA).

    Please update the product for support of the SSA format.

  5. Word Document preview blurry

    Text in Word document previews is awfully blurry and splotchy.
    Looks as though it was rendered and then rescaled to fit the window.

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
