When I run the quicklook under debug I get

$ qlmanage -d 1 -p yellow_warning.svg 

I get an error

    Just installed the 1.3.1 (275) version and the quicklook is working now with the colored images.

    However, it does not work with white SVG. I wish someone can tell me how to change the default background of the preview to a light grey so that it shows something.

    e.g.

    @1024 yes please do that. All I want to see is the white images SVG in the finder preview window and the quick look. I've been trying to figure out how to set a different color on the preview pane for the finder but I could not find any references it on the internet and obviously, apple forum is no help as usual.
