In the ordinary finder the content of text-files is shown on the right side. In Path Finder only the file-information is shown. Is it possible to get the content to show up as preview like in the real finder?

Best regards

Ali

    You can preview text files by enabling Preview on the View menu.
    What do you mean by the content os text-files is shown on the right side?

    Thank you but I'm looking for another type of preview. I want the preview to be in the right column like in the screenshot I attached.

    Not possible in Path Finder (unless you have some Quick Look Plugin for previewing text files). Path Finder still uses old-style icon preview (pre-Lion) for text files.

    We will probably add it in one of the updates.
