Hi,

Would someone mind testing a QuickLook behaviour for me, preferably on a dual screen system:
  1. Select an image in finder that's smaller in pixel dimensions than the display.
  2. Hit space to activate QuickLook.
  3. Move the QuickLook window to a secondary display.
  4. Expand the QuickLook window to full screen (the image should scale to fill the screen).
  5. Try selecting a different, small pixel-size image in the finder window on the main screen.
  • Does the new image stay scaled at full screen size, or
  • Does the new image display at its pixel native size.
As a variation of this test, there was a trick required in Sierra:
  1. Select an image in finder that's smaller in pixel dimensions than the display.
  2. Hit space to activate QuickLook.
  3. Move the QuickLook window to a secondary display.
  4. Manually expand the QuickLook window with a corner drag by a small amount.
  5. Expand the quicklook window to full screen (the image should scale to fill the screen).
  6. Try selecting a different, small pixel-size image in the finder window on the main screen.
  • Does the new image stay scaled at full screen size, or
  • Does the new image display at its pixel native size.
Another option, rather than manually selecting subsequent images, would be to select multiple images in the first place, then use the quicklook slideshow to run through them automatically. Again, the goal is to see whether scaling to fill the screen setting sticks between images.

Thanks,
