Anyone experience this? After the latest beta install, no thumbnails on my network drive files will show. It will just show the file type. I went through all the steps to make sure thumbnails are enabled, even cleared the cache, but still nothing.

It's definitely not a server or network issue, as my other MB that doesn't have beta installed shows my network thumbnails just fine.

I just wanna make sure this is an actually bug and see if anyone else has the same issue.

Feedback items on it have been flagged as “Potential fix identified” so hopefully solved in the next beta.

This has been posted in a few threads... It was obvious when I saw that all my JPG folders only showed the JPG icon and not previews of individual files.

Fix coming...
