It would be very handy to have spacebar trigger a Quick Look of the selected file, similar to how this happens in Finder.

Unfortunately, only Snow Leopard provides a public API for this. Before that, private APIs have to be used [1], which does not work in Snow Leopard anymore. Given that I lack a system with Snow Leopard, this functionality is currently difficult for me to implement in a way so that it works from OS X 10.4 upwards.

  • I suspect that adding QuickLook support now would be much easier.

    Would love to see this feature!
