    Folder Quick Look Plugin - Underconstruction by Taiyo@hatena

    note on Snow Leopard
    Apple seems to prohibit quicklook for folders. Our plugin doesn't listen qtgenerated message from Finder...
    If we have found workaround on Snow Leopard, I'll update it.

      I fond it does not work in snow leopard, could you mentioned the author to update it ?

      Thanks for reporting. We know current these doesn't work on Snow Leopard and have plan to release it. Snow Leopard's Finder.app is gone to 64 bit application then 32bit plug-in does not work on it.

      Folder.qlgenerator does not work on Snow Leopard because Apple stopped to launch quicklook trigger key to plugins....

    8. @lfom 57 months ago | reply

      So it can't be fixed? No workarounds? TIA

      Sorry, we've tried to find some workaround but quicklookd does not kick our plug-in off. I hope if this limitation is a bug not by design.

      how about quicklook for illustrator? I can't get it to work now. Tried a couple locations /library/quicklook ~/library/quicklook no success. No third party quicklook plugin seems to function.

      For some odd reason, it doesn't work for me (and I'm using 10.5 Leopard). What could be the problem?

      Would love to see this work on Snow Leopard! ;)

      Great and useful plugin! I hope to see it working on SL as well. Meanwhile, you could want to see a preview of the folder's contents inside a translucent folder icon (via Terminal):

      defaults write com.apple.finder QLEnableXRayFolders 1

      You'll need to restart the Finder (i.e. via Terminal):

      Killall Finder

      Thank you for your useful plugin ;)

      Your mac.com homepage seems to be offline, I would've loved to give this a try. The last comments here are from a while back, I realize that, but maybe it's still available somewhere ;)
