  2. Download view message could be improved.

    When users go to a shared link, the notice is "We're sorry, this file type is not currently supported". The phrase "not currently supported" is misleading and although there is download button below it, it causes a unnecessary ripple in the users minds as this information is processed. I suggest changing it to "We're sorry, you cannot view this type of file here, but you may download it." Also, it would be nice to have the file name in this message rather than at the top left-hand corner.

  3. Typo

    There is a typo:
    preview.show(fildId, accessToken, options);
    =>
    preview.show(fileId, accessToken, options);

  4. 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?

  5. 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…

  7. Add grid view layout to Preview page / ability to see thumbnails of pages within a document

    We provide a thumbnail/icon/'slide sorter' view in the Box iOS app when previewing a file. We should provide this same experience in the full webapp Preview UI as well.
