I wouldn't say that the work that went into this isn't worth $20, but it's pretty annoying that QuickLook doesn't support .ai files without a plugin, since the entire OS X display system is PDF-based. A better solution, going forward, would be to save Illustrator documents in "Illustrator PDF" format, which should display in QuickLook with no plugin. They did do a decent job on the plugin, but I'm really not looking for lists of colors used in the document and things like that -- I just want QuickLook to display .ai files the same way as any other image file format (other than gradient meshes, which are apparently never going to display correctly in non-Adobe software -- unless those are part of the PDF standard that Adobe just submitted to the ISO). The clincher is that this plugin does not understand layer visibility, so all the layers I have turned off show up in the preview. This makes it borderline useless.

To be honest after installation I don;t see how this plug-in inproves my view - all the same as before ...

The new loupe "feature" is useless. It reduces the magnification of the preview and it doesn't show what's directly under the loupe. What's the point? How do I disable it?

Although I like and bought this plug-in, it does not render anymore the eps files correctly. Moreover, I never got an answer to my mail asking for feature, that's a key to bypass SneakPeek Pro when we want to see the files without information provided by the plug-in. I see that they have released today an iPad/iPhone version which means that they've put their ressources on this more profitable channel rather than improving their products.

Same problem with "The SneakPeek Pro Quick Look plugin installed is incompatible with this Preference Pane". I'm running SL in 64-bit. I can have access to the actual prefs pane but I do get a dialog box with the above warning every single time I open the prefs. The pref pane also indicates it's v51 with quicklook v20 installed. Any clues as to what's happening?

How to get rid of this nightmare? The 'sneakpeaks' are low resolution messes that are as much use as the original indesign file icon. I deleted the pref pane, but still it sits there taunting me with its 'expired' greyness. You should have included un un-installer.

I'm not able to reproduce that here. Can you send a screenshot of your Preferences Pane to: techsupport _at_ code-line.com?

Provides tons of information about my RAW and JPEG image files. I'll buy it when I can spare the $10.

My review of this plugin is highly varied. First of all, it's *way* better than not having any QuickLook preview at all. You can get a general feel for what is in the document. And the sidebar list of colors and fonts is an amazingly useful bonus that one really wouldn't expect. *However*, the text in the documents does not get rendered. You can see where the linebreaks are and the general layout, but you can't read the text--it is replaced with blurry grey bars. So if you have two similar documents, you cannot tell them apart. Given that other QL plugins do render text I can't fathom why this one doesn't. The lack of text makes this feel like a Beta version where the authors say "Wait until the final; we'll get text working by then." But since it's been nearly 2 years since SneakPeak was released, nobody should be holding their breath that it will ever be added. I don't want to join the "this costs too much" crowd except to say that for $20, it really should render text. Without that feature, this plugin should cost about half what it does. That's only fair.

In the preferences for InDesign CS3 under File Handling: Saving InDesign Files: Preview Size choose Extra Large. Then you will be able to read the text in the Preview.

Of course, either Apple or then Adobe should have included this feature eons ago, especially in a high-tuned OS as is OS X 10.5. I don't understand e.g., that although embedded in the document, InDesign won't show me the preview of the document I want to open, when I hit «command + open» from within the application. At least InDesign itself should do that. Since installing SneakPeek Pro I can see it, yay! Not only the previews in the Finder, which - whatever the quite hefty prize tag - makes it money well spent. Just to finally have that feature at your hands is awesome.

It is not good for me. When you look a document (whatever it is: eps, fh, indd or ai), it does what it is expected. But when you want to look another document it shows inside of the first document you look. :(
