Disable all previews of weblinks

Would it be possible to disable the preview loading of web content completely?

Sometimes I store links in DT, and navigating my inbox triggers loading of these sites. This loading makes no sense because it takes long and shows no useful information, just a couple of layers of cookie consent. I figured that I can disable JavaScript in the Settings, which makes most web pages non-functional and goes half way, but I would love the option to completely disable any preview of remote content.

I would be completely happy if there was just no preview for a web location stored in DT, or maybe the preview should be just a clickable version that opens the link in the default browser.

You can set View > Preview To None!

Yes, that would be an option, but I do like my previews of text files, tables, well pretty much anything locally. In the Inbox all sorts of files appear.

Loading of bookmarks is a problem on a very old MacBook. A preference would be great.

Just curious but in which scenario do you select a bookmark but don’t want to preview it? Or what exactly do you want to do with the bookmark after selecting it?

My Inbox is full of stuff and I might use arrow keys to navigate the list, passing over a bookmark.

Or I may want to process that bookmark. I know exactly where I want to send it, with “See also & Classify”. Then I select it, and the loading of the preview slows me down because it’s visually disturbing and slows the computer down because it’s heavy.


I’d like to support this feature request too. I have a similar use case in that I often move the cursor down with the keyboard and, as it passes over a URL link, it will load the content automatically. As these are, in my case, frequently links to YouTube, this can be quite annoying.

A future release will include such an option.
