Installed PF on a new laptop and can’t get the sidebar preview to work correctly. My old laptop renders a preview for all text based files, and the new one only shows the icon.

Am i missing a config option?

    Hi Sandro,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    It might be that you unchecked your Use color icons option in your Sidebar setting. You can turn it back by hovering your mouse over the left top corner > click on three-dot button > checkmark Use color icons!

    Best Regards,
