QuickLook Preview fails since 1.2.9

Issue #72 resolved

Ever since I updated to 1.2.9, Gapplin always displays a blank white rectangle in previews. I also notice I can't choose 1.2.9 in the Version dropdown.

    I am also seeing this same issue since updating Gapplin.

    While this is being fixed, could we add preferences options to change quicklook/finder-preview background?:

    • Color
    • Transparency
    • Background Image

    This would make scanning through SVGs in Finder/Cover-Flow a very nice user experience.

    At present, when there is a white SVG on a white background, nothing is seen in Finder. I encounter this a lot when making white icons that are placed on darker buttons to build scalable user-interfaces.

    It would be nice if we could set a semi-transparent background with a repeating image like this:

    Yesterday, I submitted a new Gapplin, v1.2.10, including this fix.

    @François DELAGE Sorry, but currently, I won't distribute Gapplin outside the MAS because of the limitation of my development time. The fix will be applied soon. Please wait for it.

    @Alistair MacDonald That sounds interesting. Thank you for the suggestion. However, in order to apply this fix quickly, I didn't implement it on 1.2.10. I'm still not sure, what is the proper way to provide options for a quick look. It needs to be examined. So, I'll create a new issue for this feature later.
