    Just a quick question...

    I use Bean for my minor word processing needs, and whenever I save a document using Bean I can't access it with Quick Look. However, if I save the same document using NeoOffice I have no problems using Quick Look.

    Is this a bug in Bean, or do I need to activate some hidden setting? Thanks for any info!

    No, it's not a bug - more like an omission.

    However, if you're running leopard, this should be resolved with Bean 0.9.11:

    I'm running 1.3.3, and I save them in ODT files so they can seamlessly be used with Neo Office. Maybe I should try some other extensions, but I'm not sure what you mean about 0.9.11. Is that another app altogether?

    Nope, it's not another app – I just meant "as of 0.9.11" (which is before it went 1.0.0). I'm using 1.3.3 as well.

    I mainly use the RTF(D)-extension, but I just tried with .bean and QL works there as well.

    Tried odt: works there for me as well.

    If I were you, I'd try downloading Onyx and run some scripts, reboot and see if that works.

    I don't know what else to suggest as it works for me, running leopard 10.5.4 on an MBP 2.33GHz.

    Thanks for the info. Still not working on .ODTs for me, but that's alright. It's not the end of the world, and I'll keep playing with it to see what happens.
