New Mac Tech! This uses an Extension, which is Apple’s new technology for file previews. If you have any issues, check the System Preferences to ensure that the extension is added and enabled. There are fewer parts to the new technology, so less to troubleshoot. *NOTE – Apple made a decision for MacOS Catalina, Big Sur, Monterey, and Ventura whereby .EXP files cannot be shown as thumbnails. All other platforms and formats are unaffected.

Note: You will be asked for your Thumbnailer serial number.


Please install Platform version 1.170 (or later) then add the BX.
