  1. 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

  3. 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…

  6. 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.

  11. Add Missing Color Profiles in Box Preview

    Image capture devices (cameras, document scanners, etc.) and image display devices (computer monitors, cell phone screens, printers, and so forth) all have different natural color and tone characteristics. One camera may be more sensitive to reds, while another camera will react more to blues. Some LCD displays may naturally be brighter or darker than others. Depending on which two device, we are comparing, these differences may be subtle, or very large and obvious.

    Color profiles provide a means by which an output or display device can make accommodations for these differences, meaning that your image can appear more or less…

  12. Improve annotations for Box Previewer UI element

    One of the main feature of our proof-of-concept utilizes Box’s concept of collaborations. We want to demonstrate beyond the capability of the basic file/folder sharing by utilizing the Box Previewer UI element and enabling the annotation feature. The annotation is such a great feature to enhance business and client relationship in the digital space. We implemented this feature however we found there are some challenges and we are hoping Box can help us find a solution to create a better experience.


    1. We were able to activate the annotation but only within app users. Both our employee entities and customer entities…

  13. 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.

  15. New Preview Font Request : Eisai

    We adopt the "HGP Soei Kaku Gothic UB" as a template font of Powerpoint in our enterprise.
    Since the font above can not be displayed in the Box online preview, many dissatisfied voices are heard from users.
    Because of this situation, we cannot expand the use of Box at this time.
    We strongly request to add Japanese fonts included with MS Office (Windows), including the above font("HGP Soei Kaku Gothic UB"), to Box Powerpoint online preview.

  16. Visual Versions: Preview prior versions directly in the web app

    Concurrent editing feature in Office Online can result in 200+ versions of a document within a matter of hours.

    There is no easy way to identify which version we want to roll back to without downloading previous versions.

    We would like a preview of earlier versions to be available in the web app - does not need to be a full html5 but maybe an instant preview?

    On account of our security stance we don’t want to expose the text layer unless a user has permission to download a file. As the text layer is required to initiate search we can not activate the feature for users who don’t have download permissions
