10.5: Quick Look files in Open and Save dialogs
Authored by: jkleis on Jul 03, '08 02:14:46PM

I do find a drag n drop solution slow and unhandy. I prefer to use a keyboard solution. Cmd+R to reveal the files in the Finder window, then press space to quick look the selected files. When done press escape, and finally Cmd+W to close the finder window. Now you are back at the open/save dialog window. And this trick actually also work in the Save dialog as well, even though the files aren't valid for selection.

Of course it would be nice if Apple simply made it possible to use quick look in the open/save dialog.

Some of us play the piano, and some of us paint. The keyboard is not everyone's cup of tea.
