    I heart Quick Look.

    So much so that I find myself moving for the space bar even when I know there is no Quick Look available.

    "There's a link to a Word doc on this website, let me just Quick Lo... oh"
    "Is that a clickable thumbnail in Google Images? Let me just... woops"

    On a more serious note:
    "I just downloaded this Word doc and its in my downloads stack, I'll just Quick Look it now. Nope!"
    This one kinda bothers me.

    Anyway, love my AlumiMac with Leopard :) :apple:

    Seriously, I wish I could Quick Look documents from a Stack too!

    Indeed!

    I would also like it if you could use quicklook without having to select a file. So that you could just hover over a document and pressing the spacebar would automatically select and open it in quicklook.

    No, you just select the file and press the space bar.

    They'd probably have to do this if they added the ability to Quick Look files in Stacks. Definitely would be a nice way to implement it, for me at least.
