    Has anyone had any luck getting this quicklook plugin to work under snow leopard?


    The same author made one for zip files and it works fine. Just can't get this one to do anything.

    if you are having problems why don't you look under the console to see if snow leopard has any problems with it / doesn't support it

    Thats the plugin I've tried to get running!
    Though I doubt that It'll get updated (Last update was in 2007)
    Maybe someone knows of a similar one that'll work.
    I still keep Quicklooking into folders, and get annoyed when it just comes up with the folder name and not the contents! :mad:

    This is perhaps the biggest annoyance through upgrading to SL.

    I contacted the author a little while ago while SL was still in beta and he told me he did have plans to make it work but wanted to wait for it be released as the files he needed to tap into kept changing.

    If you have MacPilot you can enable a similar quick-look folder action. Once in quicklook it flicks through the contents of the folder.

    I wish Apple hadn't changed the Finder.app like this in Snow Leopard. Unfortunately, the 'X-Ray' mode (http://bit.ly/bUpb2b) is not really that "similar" -- 10 documents in a folder are pretty indistinguishable when you can't see filenames.

    If anyone comes up with a solution please post here!
