I love to use Quick Look and I believe other Mac users also love this nifty Leopard feature. Not only you can save your time previewing your documents with simple Space button but by installing several more QuickLook plugins, you can peek inside your ZIP files.
It's not limited to that, developers nowadays are still under high spirit to create even more powerful plugins to enhance QuickLook feature. Eventually, I hope we can QuickLook every type of files, including DMG files.
However, you will need to drag and drop your new QuickLook plugin, which comes in bundle *.qlgenerator, into folder Macintosh HD → Library → QuickLook to make it works.
Let's see what are the interesting QuickLook plugins we have here.
Firstly, thanks to Hong Kiat, he recommend me this tip. Let me share a bit about QuickLook plugins for your finder extensibility. I believe most of us have already known that there are many useful QuickLook plugins out there. And according to me, these three QuickLook plugins are used the most :
With this plugin, you can see what's inside a folder, reveal hidden items and even the exact time of the items' creation and modification can be shown.
It's a tough time for me to figure out how to read file with type Property List (for tweaking purpose). I tried to use TextMate but it's been expired. I also tried to use TextEdit but all I can see were mysterious codes. However, Quick Look seems to be working well with this kind of files.
Quick Look and Slideshow, which complement each other, are masterpieces of Leopard.
Quick Look, which cannot be opened at the same time with Slideshow, is known to be the simplified version of Slideshow. Though so, Slideshow in Leopard, that comes with better resolution, should not be completely buried under the trees. In this article, I will discuss some of the techniques to open your Leopard Quick Look and your Slideshow, that is hidden under Quick Look, at ease.
As I've just said, Slideshow is well hidden under the Quick Look. Hovering your mouse long enough on top of the eye icon, which is the button for activating Quick Look, would definitely unveil the fact that Slideshow is the alternate version of Quick Look. Therefore, holding modifier key Option change the tool icon from an eye into our familiar Slideshow button.
