Version 4 (modified by hgd, 10 years ago) (diff)


Quick Look is a new feature for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). It lets users see a preview and a thumbnail for various document types in the Finder and other apps. In order for Quick Look to work, documents need UTIs (Uniform Type Identifiers). I have defined the following UTIs for Mulberry documents:

  • Drafts (extension .mbd, type 'Lett'): com.mulberrymail.mulberry.draft

A very bare-bones plug-in is now available:

  • It only works for drafts
  • It probably only works after the Info.plist of Mulberry itself has been modified
  • For some reason it doesn't handle UTF-8 properly

You can download the plug-in here:

Installation instructions:

Future releases of Mulberry will have a modified Info.plist file with support for UTIs. If you want to modify it yourself, just add these lines to the outermost dict (sorry for the messed up indentation):

 			<string>Mulberry draft</string>

If you don't know what this means, don't try it ...
