How to Enable Text Selection in QuickLook

By Richard Mallion
QuickLook is a great feature of Mac OS X which allows you to preview most types of documents without having to open the document up in it’s native application.
As a reminder to “QuickLook” a document just select it in the Finder and press the space bar.
With a quick trip to the terminal we can now enhance this feature. By running the command below in the Terminal you will now be able to select text in that document and then copy it out. Very useful.

defaults write QLEnableTextSelection -bool TRUE
You will have to logout and log back in for the change to take effect
