Quick Look not working lately

Hi Jesse: Quick Look for Bike files appears to have stopped working for me. I’m running MacOS Ventura. Do you know what the problem might be?

Previews are working for me, but I’m on macOS 14.

When I search for that extension “com.apple.tips.tipsAppQuicklook-macos” I see a lot of Ventura related quicklook bug reports. I’m not certain of the cause/fix, but I don’t think it’s anything directly related to Bike.

This article has some fix suggestions: How to Fix Quick Look If It Stopped Working After macOS Ventura Upgrade - The Mac Observer

Thanks for your response. I upgraded to macOS 14 and also worked through all of the suggestions in that link. Quick Look still isn’t working for me with Bike files, though. All my other files appear to work fine with Quick Look.

Hum, that’s no good. Is anyone else having quicklook issues? Or have thoughts on a fix?

One thing you might try:

  1. Log into your guest account.
  2. Download Bike and save to desktop
  3. Use Bike to create file on desktop.
  4. Does quicklook work?

Happy to give this a try, but what is the guest account? You mean, a guest account on my Mac?

Yes, if you go into System Settings “Accounts and Users” there should be an option to enable a guest account if it isn’t already enabled. Try logging into that account is what I mean.

When logged in under the Guest account, the only app available to use is Safari, so I wasn’t able to download Bike and try Quick Look. I’m still having the same problem as before.

Quicklook working well here – macOS 14.0 on M2
