DT3: How to view pdf page thumbnails for search results?


I love the new search occurrences list in DT3!

Is there a way to have the PDF page thumbnails from DT2 in addition to it?

I very often use the following flow and I would like to do this with DT3 as well

  • search all PDFs
  • drag single page with a search hit from DT into Finder


No, it’s only possible to show one inspector at the same time (see Tools > Inspectors > Search and Tools > Inspectors > Content > Thumbnails.

Also covered in the built-in Help > Documentation > Inspectors chapter.

PDF specific information is generally covered in Documentation > Documents > PDFs.
