Turning off custom Finder incons?

My Scrivener documents used to show in the Finder with a sexy yin-yang graphic that stood out nicely and made them easy to click.

Now they show as thumbnails of text – unreadable and for me, utterly useless. Worse, they look like every other document format, so it’s a lot harder to find my Scrivener docs.

Is there a way to turn this behavior off and just see the cool yin-yang graphic?


Hi Joy,

In the Finder, go to View > Show View Options and deselect “Show icon preview”. Then click on “Use as defaults” to apply this setting to all files.

All the best,
