Inserting Images in Box Notes

You can insert images into Box Notes by dragging and dropping them from your desktop. You can also insert links to external images from any site. 


Insert an image in one of two ways:

    1. Drag and drop an image from your desktop into a Box Note. This is the fastest and easiest way.
    2. Click the Insert Image button in the toolbar, and choose either Add image from your computer or Add image from the web.
When you upload images from your computer, the images will be stored alongside the note in a folder called Box Notes Images > "Note Name" Images. They are inserted into the note using Shared Links with your account's default access type. If you are sharing a Box Note with someone outside your company, you may need to adjust the access level of the images' shared links for them to appear.


Supported Image Formats:

Box Notes supports the following image file types: .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .svg, .bmp, and .ico.


Using Tables in Box Notes

To insert a table into your Box Note, click on the table icon in the toolbar.




A table will appear in your Box Note. Then, you can enter text into the table or format it to meet your needs. You can choose from the following formatting options: 


  1. Insert row below
  2. Insert row above
  3. Delete row
  4. Delete column
  5. Insert column left
  6. Insert column right 

If you need to resize a column, you can hover over the side of the column you wish to move and drag it right or left as needed.
