    I've created a custom folder icon with Icon Composer.
    When I apply the icon to a folder, it changes in the Finder, but when I QuickLook the folder, it shows a blank QL page.. (i.e. no icon)

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    Somewhere between my imagination and reality
    Best guess - quicklook does not fully support .icns files. Obviously most icons show up with quicklook so that is strange though. How are you "applying" it?

    After a lot a messing around with IconBuilder and Icon Composer I tried img2icns and it worked perfectly.

    I'm dragging the icon to the 'Get Info' window, onto the folder icon and it works (also in QL)

    I wonder why shareware like IconBuilder aren't doing their jobs...
