10.5: Strip icon previews for better Cover Flow view
Authored by: robogobo on Dec 18, '07 04:19:43PM

Regarding the tip added by fds- I'm trying this method of deleting multiple preview icons at once, and it seems not to work at first. The ctrl-command-I opens a single info window (so does command-I if more than 10 items are selected), but when I select the icon and hit command-x, nothing happens. Interestingly, though, if I do a paste (with any icon in the clipboard) and THEN delete, it does work. Great!

Why would you hit Command-X? Just hit the Delete button. :)
(That's the Backspace key for PC converts.)

I tried Delete. It doesn't work for me. So I hit Command-X. Why does it matter?

I had the same problem... the copy/paste worked, but I still could not see the images in cover flow. Relaunching Finder fixed the problem.
