Image previews missing in open dialogues…

Recommended Posts

This may very well be related to a recent system update so apologies if this is nothing to do with Affinity but hoping that someone might have an answer regardless.

I updated my Mid 2010 Mac Pro to the latest system it can handle 10.13.6 and I've just noticed that when I go to open a file, if I have the dialogue box set to list view then I no longer get the preview of the file showing at the bottom of the dialogue. Now there is just a thin strip of grey. The only way I can see the files is by going into columnar view (which I don't like using) or by pressing the space bar to preview the images. Problem with that is that the images load very large and so take a lot longer to go through.

Was wondering if anyone knows of a way to get that functionality back? If it is Apple that have taken this out then seriously have no idea why as it was really really handy having the image preview at the bottom of the window in list view.

Thanks for any help with this.

Best wishes,

Mark

To the best of my knowledge, there never has been a separate preview in list view, not at the bottom or anywhere else in the open dialog window. Is it possible you were using some third party add on that created this & it is no longer installed or has been disabled because it is not compatible with 10.13.x?

I really should check more before posting!!

I believe you are correct and it was part of an older version of Default Folder that I am running. Have been using DF ever since it first came out and it was so en-lodged in my use of the computer that I just thought it was part of the system!! :-)

Thanks for the pointer! Much appreciated.

Best wishes,

Mark

I know what you mean. Not long after I got my first Mac (sometime not long after the end of the last ice age, IIRC) I changed its system beep sound to "Ni!" & have done the same for every Mac I have owned since then.

I have become so used to it that if I work on another Mac & it doesn't make that same sound, I think there must be something wrong with it! xD
