I've just checked and the native file dialog on mac offer preview for image files. So i think we could just simply stick to the native one. 
The dialog with the image viewer is quite ugly on the mac.

  1. I'll switch open/save file to native look.
  2. I'll try to hack around the limitation in inserting widgets to native dialogs, but it looks like we'll have to go for either of the following:
    1. A non-portable, fragile (with respect to QT updates) solution.
    2. A custom, based on the usual QT dialog, solution.
    3. A more "innovative" solution, maybe similar to what I proposed.
By the way, what do you make of my proposal: make TeXmacs documents sort of "project-like", with embedded information about directories where to find, for now images, but possibly other stuff, like related scripts or source code to be inserted or used by plugins like maxima or otherwise?

Hi Miguel,

I don't know a good solution to your dilemma; it seems like choosing
between two evils. I am also disappointed, because the native file browser
under MacOS should at least offer me the usual preview facility as in Finder.
If you can manage to get at least that working, then this would be sufficient;
the width/height/etc. handles become less important after the current reorganizations.

Best wishes, --Joris
