10.6: Do more with icon previews Desktop
In a Finder window using Icon view, including the Desktop, if the icon size is set to 64x64 or greater, .pdf, .key, and .ppt files will have forward and backward arrows overlaid when you mouse over their icons. Clicking these arrows allows you to page through the document one page at a time.

Previewing the document with Quick Look, viewing a different page, and then closing Quick Look changes the icon view preview to the new page. You can then continue to page through the document with the overlaid forward and backward buttons from the new location.

One caveat: previewing with Quick Look only updates the icon to the new page if you used the overlaid forward or backward buttons on the icon at least once before opening Quick Look.

Taking focus off the icon returns the icon preview to the first page of the document.

Yes it's a cool feature; now all we need is to be able to have 64x64 icons in Finder's list view! I tried simply editing the Finder plist file but it didn't take :(.
