I added this to my rc.conf and commands.py files 

It only works on MacOSX, but I find it usefull.

This part goes into rc.conf:

map P preview %f 

And this part goes into command.py:

class preview(Command):
    """:preview <filename>

    Opens the specified file in MacOSX Preview.app

    def execute(self):
        theFile = self.fm.thisfile.path
        theCommand = "open -f -a /Applications/Preview.app/ " + "'" + theFile + 
"' &"  # this only works on MacOSX
        call(theCommand, shell=True)
