+1. Depending on the script being run, either colours are swallowed or you end up with output in the console like this:

[info] Loading global plugins from /home/mdowning/.sbt/plugins

[info] Set current project to WEC Data Processing (in build file:/home/mdowning/Projects/git/wec/data-processing/)

[info] Compiling 2 Scala sources to /home/mdowning/Projects/git/wec/data-processing/target/scala-2.9.1/classes...

I just fell foul of this - I hit 'Delete folder' instead of 'Find in folder'. At least this option needs to be moved somewhere less dangerous.
I don't think image, video, audio or PDF preview should be automatic, but it would be nice to have a button to switch from the data view to the preview.
