Navigate between files while previewing them on the Dropbox website.

I have a folder of single page word documents in DropBox. I would like to be able to open the first .doc full screen, then move to the second .doc without backing up, tapping the next .doc then tapping again to load the full screen view. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Hey there (@sve1), it’s my understanding that you’re inquiring about .docx previews on your iPhone/ android phone  (I’m merely assuming that this is the case, since you’ve written your inquiry under the “Mobile” section on the Community), am I right? 
 
If so, then it would be worth noting that files preview individually (i.e. you’ll have to follow the steps you mentioned in your initial post); I will however happily pass your request for more previewing options on to our development team for future consideration.
 
Thanks a lot for taking the time to write us your query on our Community & please do let us know here if you have more thoughts or questions. Happy Dropboxing & take care until we talk again!

On the iPad...mobile seemed the most applicable. Thanks for the response. I'm trying to use it to display chord sheets for a gig and it's quite cumbersome to back out, select the next song, and preview it. I'm sure many musicians would enjoy a file navigation feature in the future!

I appreciate it that you explained how’ve pictured it in your mind (@sve1). Maybe it would be worth mentioning that (luckily) our product experts scan our Forum regularly for similar feedback, as it offers the transparency needed to gather your thoughts on how certain features work for you. 
 
That said, we’re always just a post away in case you have further inquiries or thoughts in the future, so don't hesitate to reach back out here at any time. Again, thanks for posting your question on our Forum & I hope you have a lovely rest of your day ahead! 😊
