  1. Speed displayed in grid view

    I would like to request an improvement so that even if it is displayed in the grid view, it will be previewed in a few seconds.
    It takes time to find the desired image file in the grid view, which is inefficient.
    For example, if you display a folder with a large number of files in the grid view, it will be previewed little by little every few files, and it took about 2 minutes to display 374 files.

  2. Ability for Preview UI Element to show a particular Version

    For version display, extend Preview UI element to take version id as one of the optional parameter and not default to Preview of current version if version id is present.

  3. Compatibility with MadCap Flare PDF Output (Fix copy/paste in preview mode)

    In Box.com preview mode of a PDF that was built via MadCap Flare, when you copy text and paste it somewhere, it removes all of the spaces in the text and makes it one big string (see example below). The copy/paste feature works fine from PDFs built out of InDesign and in all downloaded PDFs. This has been a common issue for our Support reps who want to simply copy/paste text from a previewed product documentation PDF into a Support case without having to download it each time.

    For example:

  4. 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".

    We would like to be able to open other file types (those not currently listed in the supported file types) as text files, so we don't have to download those files. We'd prefer not to have to download the files just to view them.

  7. Ability to add tags to multiple photos at once

    There needs to be a way to Quickly add a tag (after one is created) to additional photos. In other words, once I create a tag once, I need to be able to add this same tag to many other photos (one at a time though) with the simple click of the mouse, or keyboard shortcut, or similar. Having to go through the process of adding tags (as I'm reading in the instructions) is too time consuming when dealing with 1500+ photos. End goal is to flag photos as "favorites", that others can see and also add flags/favorites, and/or sort…

  8. Preview function for files created with Japanese word processing software called "Ichitaro"

    I would like to have a preview function for files created with a Japanese word processing software called "Ichitaro(一太郎)", which does not currently support preview in Box.

  9. 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…

  12. Slow video preview

    Video files take way too long until the preview starts. Shuttling is not possible until completely buffered.

    To solve this, the preview could be converted in the background into a more web friendly file that starts immediately and allows shuttling. As offered by many other services.

  13. 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…

    I would like to be able to play video and audio when previewing.
    For security reasons, I would like to share video and audio without allowing external users to download them.
    This will be a useful feature for media users.

  18. Allow for native editing of video content in Box

    This is a pretty difficult ask but one of my customer has to migrate their video content stored in Box into another cloud app that's focused on video editing. That's alot of content to move and my AE was wondering if we could be better positioned to help them if we offered the ability to do some editing of video in Box.

  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. Gestures for jump 10 seconds rewind/forward in video player

    Please implement in video player some gestures for jump 10 seconds rewind/forward, eg double tap on sides like in youtube and many other apps. Because when I watch a long video, it's very hard to jump a little back-forward via tabs on the scroll bar, but this action (especially back) is needed very often, when I listen to the speech.
