  1. 3D/CAD File preview zoom function

    <improvement>
    Improve zoom/enlargement in 3D file preview function

    With the current 3D file preview function of Box, the display of the 3D model is small, and there is a limit to the distance that can be brought close to the 3D model even when zooming, so I would like to improve.

    <Use case>
    - BIM/CIM-based 3D CAD data can be easily displayed on a browser, which can be expected to improve communication with relevant parties and productivity.
    - The viewer of a CAD maker has high performance and high affinity with CAD data, but it has a large burden such…

  2. 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.

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

  5. Box Content Preview: Allow File to be Renamed in Preview UI Element

    Files can only be renamed in the Content Explorer, requiring navigation away from the file to rename while in the Content Preview element. The request is to allow files to be renamed while previewing the file.

  6. I would really love to be able to see and use my PDF bookmarks from within the Box preview service

    I have large PDF files that are stored on Box. Rather than having to always download the files I would like to use the bookmarks within the PDF to navigate even if I am in the Box Preview function.

    Thank you for considering this enhancement

  8. Large file preview support

    A 360 degree video is taken and processed for upload to Box with the ".360" extension
    The files could potentially be very large (up to or sometimes more than 5 GB)
    With the use of Box sharing features, the 360 degree videos to be viewed/previewed by others

  9. 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。

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. Trash file from its preview

    The trash command is missing from within the "..." button of the document view.
    The workaround requires a lot of extra steps: navigate to the parent folder, select the file, trash the file.
    Moreover it is not consistant with what is possible with folders: you can trash a folder from its own view.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Fix color shift for images in Preview

    Issues with weird color shift in the preview window for .jpg photos. … and they HAVE NOT been resolved IN OVER 3 YEARS, despite how many forum posts about it Box marks as solved and how many tickets I’ve submitted. This is really effing ridiculous. Re-write your image preview code. It is near useless for anyone working professionally where image quality is important.
