viewing annotated PDFs with 100% opacity highlights completely blots out text on browser but not acrobat or Docutments by Readdle
I like to annotate PDFs on my iPad (through Documents) and browser (through Box tools). When I preview a document with 100% opacity highlights on a browser it begins to load with readable text but switches to completely blotted out text when fully loaded. I used 100% opacity because it looks the best on acrobat PDF and ipad app Documents by Readdle. Please change settings so that 100% opacity highlights do not completely blot out text when previewing in browser.1 vote

Option to open links directly in desktop applications (rather than Box Preview)
Currently when I receive a link to a file on Box via email, clicking the link takes me to Box Preview. A couple of steps are needed before I can open the file using the relevant desktop application (e.g. Word, rather than Word Online or Box Preview), which is invariably what I want to do. It is problematic to need to access files via a web browser if I am not connected to the internet or if my connection is poor. Please could you introduce a way to quickly open lists directly in desktop applications?7 votes
Ability to set default application for Box Edit opening .md file
Sometimes Box Edit opening files in the program not set as default on MacOS
If a user installs Xcode on Mac OS, the user cannot open .md files with default application which set on Mac OS. The user would like to open .md file with Atom.app but it opened with Xcode.
User can do nothing to change the application. it is the OS that it's selecting XCode when it's installed.4 votes
Box Tools install to be shown as "Box Edit" instead of "Box Tools"
While I understand the Box Tools installer also contains the Box Local Com Server application, it is there to support Box Edit so labeling the entire installation more explicitly as Box Edit, instead of Box Tools, will be more clear.6 votesnot planned · Adminrmashintchian (Product Manager, Box) responded
Thanks for your feedback. It’s called Box Tools because it actually contains both Box Edit and Device Trust capabilities in this one installer.

Customizable Box Tools Web Page - When a user is logging into Box, the Box Tools page displays, allowing Box Tools to check / verify security of the user's machine prior to entering the Box environment. However, this web page is not modifiable and because of that, can cause end user confusion. For example, the page displays text to download Box Tools, but if the user already has the package installed, that is not necessary information. This page should be customizable to allow for organizations to add their support contact information and instructions on what to do.3 votes

Allow Admin Deployment of Box Drive for Upgrades over Network
We use a deployment software and are able to use it successfully for all upgrades except Box Drive. This is due to the fact that there is a prompt for confirmation that the upgrade will cause loss connection and in a ticket was told there was no way to force it to continue.
What I'd like to see is a way for either through a deployment software, GPO, or PowerShell, be able to force upgrades at start-up. This would ensure that users are not yet accessing files that could be messed up.1 vote
Direct "Save As" when saving from Box Edit to a navigable area on local machine.
Currently if you hit Save As on the default Box Edit location, it will save the version of the file to the cache and this causes version/maintenance issues with a document.2 votes
