QuickLook feature, Dashboard tweaks in latest Leopard builds - Page 3

post #81 of 89
Agreed, it could be difficult to implement but I find the slideshow useful at the moment - QuickLook is useful when you've forgotten what a file is, although how this differs from column view is in-apparent to me. An Aperture loupe tool could be useful - but resource hungry.

Maybe Leopard is Apple's way to tell the world "we will catch up with the darned KDE features - one day, we will". And that is not necessarily bad ;-)

konqueror features related to image preview, probably :-)

Does it just show a preview of an image or does it show a preview of any document? The former is a small feat...the later is a gargantuan feat (done properly).

Column View doesn't let you browse documents, presentations and so on.

In theory, any document.

There does need to be a plugin to support new document types... in a similar way to proprietary types needing their own spotlight importer. It is hoped that developers will write plugins for the formats their app uses.
