  2. Render InDesign files previews with high quality

    When Box creates a preview of Indesign .indd files, placed images are shown in low quality only. This prevents to run correction and approval processes with customers as some image formats aren't rendered at all (white images area), especially images with transparencies and vector images like .ai, .eps, but also .psd.
    We are an ad agency and we depend on properly rendered previews.
    Is there a way to render the previews in correct quality and resolution without beeing forced to create a PDF instead for approval?

    i can see two options:
    1) create the preview with InDesign server. In this…

  11. Enable the Translation function of the web browser in the preview

    Edge and Chrome have a web page translation function as standard, but Word, PPT files, and PDF files displayed on the Box preview screen cannot be translated.
    This is a real challenge for companies with employees of many nationalities.

  12. Preview Accuracy

    I understand that preview currently can not guarantee perfect accuracy and failing perfecting it which is the ideal solution, we'd like to be able to use MSFT online with read-only privileges. This would enable users with read-only access to still see the content displayed correctly whilst not being able to make changes or download.

  13. The version log on the right should make document type immediately evident

    When version history is displayed on the right, no indication of version type (docx or pdf) is given, other than the file size, from which an inference might be made. I told my co-workers I'm a "version nazi"--that is, I'm against starting a new Box document when we've finalized a Word document as a PDF. I want them to stack the PDF version(s) right on the old versions so that ALL versions of a specific document--whether docx or pdf--are in the same Box document. But to make this more palatable, it would help if a user could readily see file…

  15. File preview could use "Preview As..." option

    Some people such as programmers use ".out" as a file extension for a text file. Although Box has done much work to support various filetypes in preview mode, Box does not offer a "Preview As Text" option as far as I can tell. It would be helpful to allow users to open files with "Open as text".

  17. Allow "plain text" toggle on preview pane for all small files

    Right now, the preview pane on the site will refuse to display plain text files unless the file extension is one of a short list of types. However, there's no good reason why this files can't be displayed. There's no need to try to syntax-highlight the files, just display the contents.

    Since the site won't necessarily know if a file with an obscure extension is a plain text file or not, all files below a certain reasonable length in bytes should have a toggle checkbox in the preview pane ("Display raw contents" or something) that would force the file to…

  18. I would like to see two buttons, "Go to My Account" and "Log in", or be able to go back to the preview screen after logging in with "Go to M

    Currently, when accessing a file link in an invited folder in Box without logging in to Box, [Go to My Account] is displayed in the upper right corner of the browser.

    When I click "Go to My Account" and log in, the page moves to "All Files" instead of the preview screen that was open.

    Previously, the "Login" button was displayed instead of "Go to My Account".
    Also, the "Login" button is still displayed instead of "Go to My Account" in browsers that do not have a login cache.

    If you use the "Login" button to log in, you will…

  19. Prevent text files from being truncated in Preview Mode

    When working with Box, we gather data which we lock down using the classification tooling within Box. This prevents engineers from downloading sensitive or customer data to their personal workstations or unauthorised areas and is generally very useful.

    However a main use case for us is allowing engineers to read through very verbose (long) log files which our product generates. When a customer provides us with these log files, we cannot always read important information, as box will truncate the view of these long files and inform the user that they should download the file to read it in it's…

  20. Enable excalidraw on box

    minimal case: enable preview of excalidraw files. excalidraw is open source (MIT) and strongly draws attention to fast hand-drawn sketches done quickly for more and more people.

    optimal: include excalidraw capability editing online, store the file directly in box, enable inline editing similar to office documents.
