In this Mac-only release of Box Tools, we have included the following bug fixes and improvements:
 
  • Improved how Box Edit is identifying the default application for a file on macOS. This should result in fewer instances of a file opening in the incorrect application. 
  • Fixed a file download issue with Box Edit for certain Mac users.
  • Fixed a crashing issue if Box Edit was unable to obtain tokens in a particular way or encountered a particular upload error.
  • Fixed a bug where Box Edit was not saving a local back-up copy of Single File Collaborated files if the Box Edit user was removed as collaborator on the file on Box after the file was opened by Box Edit.
  • Renamed Box Edit's Finder extension from "Finder Sync Extension" to "Box Edit Finder Extension". The "Box Edit Finder Extension" is used for the iWork integration
  • Included minor bug fixes and improvements 
 
Note: we are working to provide more information in our release notes based on feedback from customers. Please let us know in the comments if you have any comments or suggestions for our release notes. We may be unable to respond to each individual comment but do appreciate any feedback given.

Box Tools v4 has now been released to all existing Box Tools users.  All users should receive this update automatically.  Please remember that your environment must comply with the new system requirements to ensure continued use of Box Tools. 

 

Additionally, please take note of these important known limitations:

 

  • Box Tools v3 is not compatible with Chrome v66 which is scheduled to release on April 17th. Please ensure that users who will update to Chrome v66 have updated to Box Tools v4.  
  • After updating to Box Tools v4, some Chrome and Firefox users may incorrectly be shown a prompt to download Box Tools when attempting to open files to their desktop in the Box for Salesforce integration.  This should be resolved in a future release of Chromeand Firefox.  Users can still manually download, edit and upload files without using Box Edit or they can use Box Edit in the Box web application outside of the Box for Salesforce integration.
