And if you have to resave the file (for whatever reasons), use Adobe Reader, which provides the same functionality. Note: Preview.app can seriously mess up the internal structure of a PDF, so that it is no longer usable.

Preview can do it. Just be sure that in your Preferences → PDF tab, you have checked the following option:

You could also use Language Switcher (free), an app which allows you to "use your apps in different languages at the same time". It will give you a list of apps and let you choose in which language you want it be started. I use it all the time to make english screenshots for Stack Exchange.

You don't have to change System language to launch an app in different one. You can do for example this: /Applications/Maps.app/Contents/MacOS/Maps -AppleLanguages '(de)' This will launch Maps.app with german language set. Here are the other options: Is it possible to launch a program in a specific language?

I have the same problem with a MacBook Pro Retina and since Yosemite. I was able to track down the corresponding crash, at each occurance of the "log off" there is a WindowServer crash log generated. After goolging I've found this post in the Apple forums: https://discussions.apple.com/message/26929324#26929324 Summary of the post (detailed instructions ...

This approach is quite okay and generally sane. You should verify that Time Machine is still backing up your home directory, following the symlink to the new drive, and not just backing up a reference to your directory.

I upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite several months ago, and didn't notice any differences with OS preferences. They should stay the same. However some application specific preferences may change, but I would guess that for most standard apps, like Mail, your preferences would remain intact. But it would help if you were more specific about what kind of ...

The only way I've found to be able to do this is by using Bartender. It's all I use Bartender for (which makes the $15 price tag seem a little steep); I hide the Bartender icon and disable the other features. But it does a beautiful job of allowing me to command-drag menu bar icons.

In general, no. Most of your settings will remain intact, but some of them may be reset or irrelevant in Yosemite.

No idea what feature you are looking for as I've never used HyperSwitch and their website doesn't show much. For a "better than Apple's" Application Switcher, I use LiteSwitch X. If you want one that switches between windows instead of full Applications, try Witch

Yosemite (possibly even Mavericks) solved the issue

One possibility - right click & select Paste from the drop menu. Works for several 'awkward to paste to' destinations.

First step: don't delete "useless" files. If the first step was not done properly, please continue to the second step. Second step: Perform a recovery. This will restore the OS to its original state but will leave your user data intact.

Use URL encoding to protect the wonky characters in the password. Essentially each character (or byte of UTF-8) can be encoded as a % followed by two hex digits specifying the encoded byte. In your example, \ -> %5C and @ -> %40: mount -t afp afp://adminname:aaaaa%5C%4011111@ServerIPAddress/ShareName /Volumes/TimeMachine This worked in my test.

You can reset just the Websites service in OS X Server with the following command: sudo serveradmin command web:command=restoreFactorySettings Make sure the Websites and Wiki services are off when you run this command. Uninstalling OS X Server will, by default, retain all configuration files so that reinstallation keeps all data, however you can delete ...

Are the devices on the same network and using the same iCloud-ID? If so, it might be the continuity-feature that syncs text-messages between all known devices on the iCloud-account.

Welcome to my world. I had same problem and ended up killing the Notes in iCould. Before that I moved my precious notes to "on my mac" at least the ones that were still there. No more iCloud stealing my notes.

The simple way is to turn yoyr mac in at an authorised service provider or genius bar. What you can try yourself is to make a bootable usb with os x. Since you one have wibdows i do not know if this is possible. You could also try to download OS X and place the dmg file on a usb. Then try to boot from the usb.

So basically yes you made a rather large mistake. If if you don't have a backup the chances of getting the data back are slim to none. Even if you are willing to pay a number of Hamiltons to a data recovery company Ubuntu has likely overwritten most if not all of your files. Chalk it up to a learning experience (EG always have a current backup. Always) and ...

Preview is quite lightweight, in terms of start up time. Plus, in OS X 10.10 Yosemite, you can use the markup that are part of Preview.app from within Mail.app (as soon as you have the Markup extension enabled (see System Preferences > Extensions > Actions). Depending on the way you want to create your snapshots (i.e., for instance, including menus and the ...

There is one simple way to find out if you have a real 2009 model. How many USB ports do you have on the back of your Mac mini. If you have 5 USB ports, you have the 2009 Mac mini and I've put Yosemite on 8 of them so far this year. Go on your 2009 Mac mini and click the black apple (top left of the screen), About this Mac, get more info, look for video or ...

I know this is old, but I'm sure lots of people are being redirected here from Google. OS X may not have the serial number of it's device stored anywhere, but chances are you can find your MAC address, which, just like the serial number, uniquely identifies your machine. One example where the MAC is being stored in OS X would be ...

So... there is two ways: change the main system language for some time or use this freeware, Language Switcher, which helps to launch single applications with a different language. Also you can try this variant - App Language Chooser.

As you mentioned, smbutil lookup will resolve the name to an IP address: $ smbutil lookup qx-2000 Got response from 10.0.1.21 IP address of qx-2000: 10.0.1.21 We can extract the IP address from this output: $ smbutil lookup qx-2000 2>&1 | tail -n 1 | cut -d : -f 2 10.0.1.21 Then we can use that in our argument to ping: $ ping $(smbutil lookup ...

It sounds like you don't have a backup of your original OS X setup, and since you also likely don't have the Recovery partition, you can reinstall in the following way from scratch (assuming you have a relatively recent machine): See http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT4718 for reference - but the relevant steps are below: OSX Internet Recovery Restart your ...

From what I've seen from Apps like Notes, Numbers, and Pages... They're now acting as usual apps which looks for "filesystem" files. i.e. something on the local drive.
