If I click on an OO doc in the Finder, in multi-column view, the preview window just shows a giant OO icon with no information about the contents of a particular file. (In contrast, clicking on an RTF file shows a preview of that file’s contents in the third pane.)
Is there a way to configure the Finder to allow such previewing for OO docs? It seems like this could be a huge ergonomic/workflow boon.
Might be worth tossing a feature request via the in-app Help menu. I seem to recall reading a while ago why the icon preview didn’t load because it wasn’t a native Mac filetype, or because it was a database or something. It would be nice to have it, although I have gotten used to just hitting the Spacebar.
[Updating this thread because a customer came across it while troubleshooting a different issue.]
Quick Look doesn’t appear to be working for OmniOutliner documents on Macs that have upgraded to High Sierra. We’re researching the problem but haven’t managed to find a solution yet. Discussion further up this thread may still be useful to customers running macOS 10.12 or earlier, but doesn’t apply to anyone running macOS 10.13/High Sierra. Apologies!
So cool! I will buy OO and ditch away MS Word. My intention is to use OO to sum up PDFs and Books I read for later reference or to recapture what I read. I want to easily find out in the Quick Look whats inside the OO file. Could anybody make a screenshot of how Quicklooks of (detailed) OO Files look like in the Finder in High Sierra? Thank you!
