Quicklook in T2

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

As noted in this interesting article from Apple Insider, Apple has continued to evolve the Finder in Leopard. In particular, Quicklook and an improved Spotlight make it much easier to find and browse the files you are looking for. However, in order to take full advantage of these features, the software applications you use must support them.

T2 will offer full support for both Quicklook and Spotlight in Leopard. The screenshot below shows the thumbnail view of two Timeline documents, a text file, and a PDF timeline. The icons for T2 documents are dynamically created to match the color and font scheme of the timeline chart they contain.

If you select a T2 document in Finder and press the space bar, a Quicklook preview instantly pops up like this:

Just a few weeks left until Leopard if Apple keeps to their October shipping date!

Hey Adam, this looks really slick. I noticed you had a tutorial that used InDesign as an example agregator of a Timeline PDF. Have you considered developing and selling an InDesign plug-in that would allow users to do the timeline work natively in InDesign? The integration point seems natural, your product is a major productivety enhancer, and textbook publishers would love it.
