It's not that the defaults write command fails. I verified the file, and it wrote the variable to it. The problem is somewhere in the design. Maybe they have moved it? I have been looking in the containers and other files but no luck yet. I hope they didn't completely kill it. Maybe there is a way to copy the old Yosemite version of QL back? If I ...

Just to tie together the comments & partial answers… Current state of play [as of OS X 10.11.2] would actually appear to be "this can no longer be done". Regarding the following on QLEnableTextSelection… that one alternative will fix it whilst the other doesn't appears to be some kind of hopeful, yet unfounded, meme going round the interweb - people ...

You can use the quicklook-json plugin. If you want to install it via homebrew, run brew cask install quicklook-json which requires a running brew install caskroom/cask/brew-cask if you never did that before.

You're using the QuickLook Plugin with whatever app you've set as default to open text file. You can probably find that in Your_Application.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook. As @Julien said: Generators embedded in applications are always preferred to plug-ins in ~/Library/QuickLook (which are preferred to the ones in /Library/QuickLook, which are ...

Apple has removed Cover Flow view from Open file dialog. As a workaround use a separate Finder window with Cover Flow view to locate your file in and then drag&drop the file into an open Open file dialog in your browser. The Open file dialog will then switch to the folder containing the file you dropped and highlight it.

It appears this is a Dropbox issue. While I had raised a question on Twitter, thanks to @szabolcs for creating a forum post, where others have chimed into. Remove the /Applications/Dropbox.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook/DropboxQL.qlgenerator file. @user1155120 was spot on; the beta version should be unchecked on the dropbox.com site, to prevent getting ...

I do not have a solution, but I can confirm that this definitely happens (10.11.3) and appears to be a regression. (I see reports of this from 2011, but it has never bitten me all these years, until fairly recently.) The OP is not hallucinating and his report is entirely accurate, and he is not confused about what he did. Interestingly, I never had the file ...

You can turn off the preview pane in Finder windows (column view) by going to Veiw: Show View Options (⌘+J) and unchecking Show Preview Column. This will disable video auto-play but I think your real issue is with a corrupted QuickLook or QuickTime preferences file. To find out if the root cause is as I surmise, create a folder on your desktop and move these ...

I would like to thank iLikeStrongJava for posting this issue and suggested solution. We too have been having this problem with both Mavericks and Yosemite. With regards to not seeing this issue posted in the Apple Discussion forums I think the reason for that is that there are so many overlapping network home directory problems that it is often hard to ...

Kudos to @Maya for pointing out the right answer. Here's what I did for converting a FLAC CD rip to something that iTunes would play properly. The method I used was as follows: Download and install XLD Start up XLD and using "Open Folder as a Disc..." from the File menu, point it to the folder containing FLAC files If you have an album cover, drag and ...
