10.4: Change the default Spotlight Preview zoom level
Authored by: donquichote on Nov 20, '05 01:32:09AM

What's a dodo? Maybe I should know this, because I have the same (?) problem. I can change the value in the com.apple.preview.plist, but the size of the previews (which is not that bad as others mentioned) doesn't change.

Just a thought chaps - if you're making the edit while you have Preview open, it's almost certainly overwriting your modification when you exit from the application.

Only make changes like this when the application whose plist file you're editing is not running. Hope this helps...

Thanks very much. That must have been the problem. I made sure that I closed Preview before trying again and the hack worked.

Now: I presume that I can set any value between 1 and 28 to achieve a somewhat middle range zoom size?

A dodo is an extinct bird. It's also an expression for a person of less than normal intelligence.
