Background: The Large Type action works with strings and text files.

If a file object is created using sniffString on something like /Users/Shared, it retains its string value under QSTextType. Because it has text, it passes the restrictions of the Large Type action, but the action assumes any file passed to it must have been a text file and attempts to read its contents.

Possible solutions:

  1. Make ‘sniffString` set up files to look like they do everywhere else (with no text data).
  2. Make Large Type a bit smarter about when to read a file’s contents.

We should probably do both.
