having used pathfinder for quite some qhile now (and liking it a lot) something very annoying started happening lately. The file preview (triggered by the spacebar) doesn't show a preview of png files anymore. I use this quite a lot to get a quick peek and always having to double click to see it in is starting to bug me.

Any suggestions are very welcome!

Thanks, Lennert

    Hi Lennert. The file preview you mention is called Quick Look and it's a OS X framework, not part of Path Finder.

    First, try the same (press the spacebar) in Finder. Second, try Path Finder's own viewer on View > Preview. Please report back, cheers.
