Frequently Asked Questions


Why not to play music too?

In its current state, the QuickLook technology only enables one media per file: it's either visual or audio. A request for improvement has been sent to Apple.

Why some file formats are properly displayed, and some other not?

QuickLook scans the plug-ins in the following order:
- First, in the Library/QuickLook folder of the application bundle
- Then, in the Library/QuickLook folder of the current user
- Last, in the Library/QuickLook folder of the system

Maybe you have another plug-in at a higher priority level, that claims to manage the same kind of files.

How to know to which plug-in a file format is related?

Under Terminal, enter "qlmanage -m"

How to ask QuickLook to reset the relations between file formats and plug-ins?

Under Terminal, enter "qlmanage -r"

How to relate a file format to a specific plug-in?

In its current state, the QuickLook technology doesn't enable this. A request for improvement has been sent to Apple.
