Previewing Attachments with Quick Look

Quick Look allows you to preview a file without downloading. Quick Look previews are created when a file that can be represented as a series of images (such as a Pages document, a PDF, or a Keynote presentation) is attached to a wiki page or blog post.

When you view a Quick Look preview, you view the series of images created by the wiki server, not the actual file.

Although you can preview movies and audio in Quick Look, you can't zoom, pan, or download them.

To preview an attachment with Quick Look:

  1. Click the Quick Look (eye) button next to the attachment.

    If there is no Quick Look button, the attachment can't be previewed.

  2. Do the following:
