Hi,

Is there a way to have a preview/thumbnail from cbr/cbz files in finder just like CBXshell does for windows explorer?

Best regards

I'm having the same problems. Been using simple comic for years and in the last few weeks around the time of the last Mac update i now have no images for my comic files. Just blank white rectangles. It used to show the cover of each comic in finder but this is so much work to find the comics i'm looking for on my system with out the images. Anyidea what to do? I've done a few things but nothing worked so far.

Maybe you could try contacting the developer for Simple Comic...?
but, that has not had any updates for 12 years, and the main code for the app has not had any changes for more than 5 years.
I suspect that the QuickLook and thumbnail generators have been deprecated somehow, over time. There IS updated code, but I have no idea if that did anything to the app's thumbnail generator, and I don't know what you can do, even if you get the updated code (or even if it will help)

I've been using Simple Comic for almost a decade now and it's been brilliant. However I recently updated to an M1 MacBook with Monterey and now every CBR and CBZ file look like a blank white document. I can only run Simple Comic 1.7 on the M1 as 1.9 won't install. I've contacted apple as well but no joy there. It's impossible to browse my comics now as all the files look the same and the cover art of the comics used to be visible and now it's now. Have you any advice? All the CBR/ CBZ files are set to simple comic as the default app. I've also tried changing it to preview, and have cleared the finder cache as well. Hope someone can help me.

My advice is above in post #6, try contacting Simple Comic's developer...

With little, to no activity on that github site for several years, it is looking like abandonware - you may get to wait a long time for a response.
