Support more preview fonts
Zinc Group uses fonts that are currently not supported for Box web UI preview, Klavika and Stag. Since these fonts are used extensively in the company's approved document templates, they wish to have them added to the list of supported fonts for preview.

With regards to the below article, could you please add extra Non-MSOffice font called "VAG Rounded family"?
I hope is that the OS standard fonts adopted from "Windows 10 October 2018 Update" will also display correctly on Box.
There are six fonts I'd like you to support:.
BIZ UD Gothic Regular Monospace
BIZ UD Gothic Regular Proportional
BIZ UD Gothic Bold Uniform
BIZ UD Gothic Bold Proportional
Biz UD Mincho Medium Uniform Width
BIZ UD Mincho Medium proportional
UD Gothic and UD Mincho are universal design fonts that are considered for people with visual handicaps, so I hope they will be able to be used in Box.
Add support for Helvetica Neue in preview.
Display (or give the option to display) the contents of plain text files in a monospaced font. The content preview used to do this, but it doesn't anymore. All plain text file contents are being converted to a sans serif font for display in Content Preview. This makes it difficult to read code files, for example, because serif and sans serif fonts are proportional and the text does not line up properly.

HGP Soei Kaku Gothic UB - It seems to be a paid font. Box supports only open source fonts. Please provide more details.
How to request:
If you'd like to request that Box's Content Preview support a font not listed above, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Below is the information we will need to complete the request:
- Complete details of the font
- The font license agreement
- The font source/binary or a link to the font source/binary.
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.

San Francisco is *the* font used for ALL Apple collateral (and is the official system font for iOS and macOS too). However it previews as Courier New in Box currently, which means that users will not be able to accurately preview the design of their document/file.

These are RICOH's fonts. RICOH's site to purchase, https://industry.ricoh.com/en/font/?q=HG&btnG=Search&ie=UTF-8&page=1
