Is There A Way To Show Text File Contents WIthin Tooltip Text?

It would be a huge time saver if I could hover the mouse pointer over any text file and display the initial contents of the file in the info tip. The idea would be to limit the contents display to the initial X number of lines. This could work in a way similar to how folder info tips show the files within the folder. I reviewed the info tip options, and I see no way to indicate the contents of the file. Is it possible to do what I am looking for with version 12.12? I realize that the viewer pane is able to display entire file contents, but sometimes a quick view via tool tip text is all that is needed.

I thought I saw in the past a way to do this, but I am not finding how to do it now.


Text file thumbnails do that, and you can add thumbnails to the infotips.

You can also display the start of text files in the Description column, if that helps. There's an option in the Text Thumbs plugin for that.

Thanks, Leo. I will look into this now.

Adding {thumbnail} into the info tips was all that was needed.

Thanks again!
