Found the theme files in this directory: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/Color Scheme - Default/(name_of_theme) You can see which theme you are using by going to (from within Sublime Text 2) Sublime Text 2 menu>Preferences>Colour Scheme and see which one is ticked. Open the theme file and find the key that says: ...
You may want to have a look at the "PDFs>Extract PDF Annotations" Automator action.
I'll second that answer. I'm doing the same with PDF Expert instead of GoodReader. It is really important that you do the conversion in Skim on a COPY of the original PDF, as otherwise the PDF expert (or GoodReader, I assume) will lose the annotations, once converted (e.g., if you have your PDFs in Dropbox, which you then open either on the iPad or Mac). ...
This seems to be a bug in Preview. There's a related thread about this topic in which many people say they are experiencing the same problem. I too have just tested it out and see the same results. There are 2 workarounds I can think of. The 1st is to select all the annotations and set their color manually: Open the annotations toolbar. Press the ...
You can run rm -r /Applications/TextMate.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook/TextMateQL.qlgenerator but you'll have to do that again every time TextMate is updated.
Here is a simple one which will require you to Add one more column next to the comparison value column. In this new column write a simple formula for comparison - as shown in following image. Add conditional formatting rule and you will be all set
It looks like you have full keyboard access turned on. I've noticed this makes large borders around sometimes unintended controls. You can change the settings in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts. The default should be "Text boxes and lists only"
You need to use a rule with a formula to determine the format. Select the column of data, and assuming the top cell in the selection is A1, create a new conditional format with a formula and enter =iserror(match(A1,$Z$1:$Z$1000,0)) Note that there are no $ signs around the A1 reference! Then select a format and apply this conditional format to A1:A1000. ...
You could use Fluid or Afloat:
I can't seem to avoid this problem, but I can get around it by restarting OSX Preview when it starts happening. When I reopen OSX Preview highlight works as it is supposed to (normal hight on highlights). Note: If I however save the PDF with a faulty highlight, the faulty highlight will still be there when I reopen the PDF – new highlight will work fine, but ...
PDFs are just a wrapper for various kinds of content. Depending on how the PDF was created the text might be selectable. A lot of them have the text stored as graphics and in that case you wont be able to select/copy/highlight it. I suspect PDFs also allows the "protection" of content so that viewers cannot select and copy bits of text. Where did you ...
I have managed to fix the problem by using Preview to export the PDF file as a PDF. Somehow, doing so makes all the difference in terms of Preview's ability to recognize discrete lines of text that can then be highlighted normally.
As a workaround, I've found this: Annotate with Preview or GoodReader. On the iPad, GoodReader can extract the text of annotations, when you select 'view summary'. This summary can be saved as a txt file. [Update: GoodReader seems to have removed 'view summary' in .txt format for some unfathomable reason. A workaround (at least for me) is to use the free ...
