Boxshot 5.7 beta

04 Dec 2023

Here goes a new beta for the curious ones! This time you get… Well, keep reading :)

Units of Measurement

Finally! Now you can switch between centimetres, millimetres, inches and points in settings. Numeric fields’ precision is automatically adjusted to the selected unit.

Boxshot still uses centimetres internally, so very minor rounding errors might happen which shouldn’t really affect anything. Feel free to contact us if this is a problem.


Boxshot has (well, I hope so) a pretty intuitive user interface, so other languages support was never a huge priority. However, as we’ve got inches, you probably expect to see Boxshot in your native language.

The good news is that this is now possible. The bad news is that it is up to you for now. See the Help→Language menu for details. You can open the translation editor there and teach Boxshot your language if you really need that. We’re going to improve the tool in the upcoming versions, but the idea is to keep the community–based translation for now. Let’s see how it works.

Please feel free to share your translations (even the partial ones) with us if you want to see them included in the upcoming versions.
