Looking for box api to download gdoc, gsheet, gslides in docx, xlsx, pptx respectively.

I am trying to download gdoc, gsheet, gslides files using box API for java. So far I discovered only one way which is using the [extracted_text] representation.
With above said approach though I am able to get all the text but the text format and structure and images are missing from downloaded file. 

When I download say, gsheet using the box UI from the browser then I get the xlsx and all the text and structure is maintained. I want to achieve same but using the API for Java. Is it possible to do so if yes then how ?

Hi @amansoni,

 

For downloading files that are stored in Box, you're going to want to use the download file endpoint. That will give you the content of the file in the correct format.
