This idea is that in Dolphin users should be able to turn thumbnails on and off on a per-mimetype basis. The Folderview plasmoid already has this, but Dolphin does not for some reason. A good example of the usefulness of this is *.desktop files used for shortcuts, which, when preview is on, show the contents of the text file instead of the shortcut it is supposed to be. So instead of seeing, say, an icon of a folder for your shortcut, you see a preview of a text file. This should be in the normal dolphin configuration dialog. It would work with the existing show/hide preview option. If you choose to show previews, it will only show the previews you allow it to show.


This is part of my series of Dolphin ideas

Personally, I'd LOVE this even if only implemented for the .desktop files. Mainly because I've set Dolphin to ALWAYS show previews no matter what directory it's in. It would also make the applications:/ url a LOT more useful.

Shouldn't this go in "done"?
