Quick view for Freehand MX files

Postby daveleo76 » Fri May 06, 2016 8:38 pm

Good day!

Do you guys know any quick view app that would preview Freehand MX files on a mac? I installed Sneak Peek/Art View but the resolution is horrible. Or do I just need to adjust settings somewhere? Thanks!

Dave, I have Art View and the key is raising FreeHand's file preview in the Preferences>Export. After that the previews will look good. The higher, the better.

Forgot to add that it only applies to new files. Old files will need to be resaved with the preview resolution raised as well.

Thanks Mark! A couple more things. Is there a way to preview the whole page? Mine only shows up to the objects/text then cuts it there. Can I preview multiple pages?

There are no multiple pages or assigning which page to show. I have ArtView in Mavericks and it shows my thumbnails instead of generic FHfile icon. If I preview the file (spacebar) it shows only the objects larger but not the whole page. Those seem to be the limitations.
