Just to reiterate what I said in a previous post. Dropbox is well aware of exactly what the problem is. There is no need to waste your time emailing back and forth or screensharing to describe the problem. That said, they actually do have a solution. Not a very great one (which is probably why they don't roll it out to all users.) But after emailing back and forth with them and explaining my problem and calling out their insincerity, I noticed that the problem was suddenly solved on my account and that of my coworker's. Our dropbox will now show previews for images even when they are in the cloud only. The problem is, it doesn't perform very well. It takes a really long time to download a lower resolution image and desplay the preview. But it does work. More importantly, it no longer disables quick look for the rest of my files that ARE downloaded. My guess is that this isn't a solution they can send out to everyone, for some reason or another. But it does seem that if you give them enough greif, they might enable this feature on your account. Take a look at this screenshot to see exactly how this works.

Hi everyone. I recieved an email from Dropbox support after emailing back and forth for a few days. I had to press them for a straight answer, after continued vague answers. In the end, it seems they are well aware of the issue, but haven't found a good solution yet. I'm assuming there are lots of pieces involved, including with MacOS. It doesn't upset me so much that Dropbox has a bug. What is frustrating is that they don't come out and say it directly on this forum so that we don't have to waste our time emailing and explaining something that they already know about. If you want to email with Dropbox support to help them resolve this issue, by all means do so. But there shouldn't be any need for extensive explanations and screensharing.
