The problem was in the encoding of the URL. Apparently Preview is more strict about that then oder pdf viewers. also it turned out to work better if we put the image inside the link <a ...> <img ...>xx</img> </a>

The a2ps utility is for formatting files for printing on a PostScript printer, hence its name is not a2pdf. The file you created under Linux (or OS X), which is a miss-named .pdf file, is in fact a PostScript file and many Linux Distros will open it anyway. Thus leading you to believe is was a PDF Document when in reality it's not. Looking at the file ...

Dagremu's suggestion is a great one. While his trick might not work when he was writing, I am able to use line tool to highlight a line as shown in the screen capture below. This is an important improvement for Preview!

I believe iBooks will load up and view PDFs and if you are signed into iCloud on all devices the last read page should sync between devices. I stand corrected this does not seem to work, grrrr... I thought I remembered it working, sorry. I have no other suggestions other than to try other PDF readers on the app store. You might also want to ask the hive ...

I believe you are using the free version of Adobe Acrobat/Reader. On the Windows side of things if you are using Adobe Reader there is no UI or interface for changing the font. If you are using Adobe Acrobat Pro/Standard you can change the font. One workaround I have found is copy some text with the font you want to use from another application and paste ...

I’ve got it. I think. Took me a long time but I think I have worked out what’s happening. Hopefully this might be helpful to someone else. First of all I noticed locking the file in the Finder seemed to stop Preview remembering a different page. So if I opened the PDF on page 1 and then scrolled to page 10 it wouldn’t remember the PDF was on page 10 anymore ...

Cropping the page could work for you. So, open up whatever PDF you want to crop in Preview. Hit the Select button in the toolbar and crop the first page as you want all the selected pages to be cropped. The cropping tool works just like any crop tool in your average photo editing software. Then, in the sidebar on the right, select a thumbnail of any page ...

Photos does not appear to be able to open PDF files. But if what you want is to open the PDF in an app that allows you to edit it, there are many. I've tried Skitch (editing costs extra), but there are plenty. This list alone has 10 apps that can open PDF's on iOS : Adobe Reader Foxit Mobile PDF PDF Reader iAnnotate Kindle Google Play Books Mantano ...
