dxf file icons in Mac OS X

Post by dfriasb » Thu Mar 24, 2016 7:57 pm

Hello, I'm quite new in QCAD and also in Mac OS X.

I'm trying to find a way to see dxf file icons not like a blank sheet (that's the way I see them now). Is it possible to see the preview of the file in Mac's Finder?
I saw in the Lybrary Browser inside QCAD you have this icons, even you can select the size of them in Preferences. So, can this image be in Mac's Finder file icon?

Maybe this question was treated before, but I have been looking in the forum and I didn't see nothing about. I'm sorry if I didn't find the topic.

Thank you. Best regards,

David

No, at least not provided through QCAD. Other solutions (QuickLook plugins) might be available to render at least DXF file previews and icons.
