Change the size of Witch's pop-up preview image Apps
The recently-released Witch 3.5 includes a feature that pops up a preview window when you leave a window selected in Witch's switcher panel. If you find the preview window too large (or too small), you can modify its size with a hidden preference. Disable Witch first, then run this Terminal command:
defaults write ~/Library/Application\ Support/Witch/Settings "Preview Size" -int 20
The 20 represents the size of the preview window in relation to screen height; Replace that with a desired size, ranging from 10 to 100, then re-enable Witch. The default setting is 40, and values over 80 are not recommended.

Disclaimer by RobG: I work for Many Tricks, developers of Witch. We document most of our hidden prefs in our help file, but this one is truly hidden: it's not documented anywhere other than here and in our personal notes. Witch 3.5 was released on June 14th, and this hint won't work in earlier versions.

Thanks, this is a very nice tip. I prefer smaller previews since I just need to know which window and donít need detail here.
