Preview is too simple to be useful

Recommended Posts

The current preview screen (by 'Shift' key) is too simple to be useful. At lease you must highlight(e.g. in yellow) the keyword. Preferrably you also need to provde a small navigation component to go througt all match places in the text. Also for code, preferablly you should have syntax highlighting support.

The preview window is Quick Look, which is a macOS native feature. It can’t highlight the keyword because there isn’t a mechanism to pass that information. But it can be extended to highlight code (search online for Quick Look Plugins and you’ll find plenty).


If you’re looking for improvements no plugin can provide, then you’ll need to contact Apple via Feedback Assistant and request it.
