  1. Support frame-by-frame video preview

    I am shocked that Box doesn’t allow frame by frame movement through web viewing. This is something that should be addressed as a priority. I won’t be subscribing to Box until this is an available function. This is so necessary in the television industry without downloading.

    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

    Yes the preview of .dwg files is now implemented !!!! Thank You !!!
    But now we can go futher :)

  12. PDF Bookmark for Box Preview

    When a PDF files is viewed through a standard browser plugin, a hyperlink can be created to directly navigate to a specific bookmark, but this functionality is missing in the Box Preview.

    For instance, if a professor wants to make a textbook reference (to a specific chapter/page number), it would prevent confusion and save the end user from having to scroll through the pages.

  14. Add "expand all" flag for annotations

    Currently, all point/comment annotations are collapsed by default.

    If a user leaves many annotations on a multi page document, this can lead to some point annotations being missed.

    There should be an expand all option to mitigate this.
