I discovered through the TeX StackExchange that Skim handles this quite well. Just make sure to check the "Check for file changes" option in the Sync tab of preferences, and you might need to set the hidden option mentioned in the TeX StackExchange post.

As @tty suggested, using Karabiner is brilliant. I made some extra rules. You can navigate using HJKL and zoom using FDER. Read the file for more info. Here is my private.xml: <?xml version="1.0"?> <root> <appdef> <appname>PREVIEW</appname> <equal>com.apple.preview</equal> </appdef> ...

I'm using PhotoShop CC 2014 under Yosemite on a 2012 MacBook Pro. I'm not seeing an issue, even testing with a 5MB PDF. One thing to consider is that the PDF file is corrupt. To check this, try loading some alternative PDFs into PhotoShop. Instead of drag-dropping the PDF onto the Dock icon, you can also try either of the following: Right-click the PDF, ...

When using lineart, logos, etc from a vector file (not too complex), it is possible to use vector graphics in Powerpoint. Enlarge it 400% in illustrator and export it as a .WMF file. This allso works for other office applications.

Actually I solved the problem by realizing that Powerpoint is really bad in compressing photos. I tried to insert a 20MB jpeg and it looked awful in my Powerpoint Mac 2011. I solved it by adjusting the resolution with Photoshop and then pasted it - the results are a huge improvement!

Preview 7.0 has this capability. If you have a backup of your Mavericks installation you can copy Preview 7.0 into your Applications folder and it will coexist with Preview 8.0 (Yosemite).

VoiceOver can only read PDFs that are actually text-encoded. If they are simply image files, it has nothing to "read." You can use Acrobat Pro or another PDF application like Abbyy FineReader or ReadIRIS with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to "read" the graphics and convert them to text. Then you can use VoiceOver to speak if for you. OCR isn't perfect, ...

Preview app on 10.6.8 doesn't let you extract images except by selecting then copying and creating a new file from clipboard. Another way is using the free unix xpdf tools. They come with a utility called pdfimages. I just used it on a PDF and it perfectly extracted the images from the file. For example... pdfimages -f 2 -l 2 -j 27487.pdf testname It ...

I downloaded Keyboard Maestro and was able to get what I needed by writing a macro. I have a new favorite program. I kind of wish I had tried it sooner.

This is still an issue with Mail.app 8.2 in OSX 10.10.4. The only solution I have found so far is to save the email as a rich text document, then open the text document in TextEdit and save as PDF.

If you can download the file as an .epub then it shows you your highlighting.

Install the PDF reader first (Foxit in my case). Upload the file on Google Drive, and then open Google Drive on iPad. After this, tap keep the file on device. Then, tap open in option (this will appear in Google Drive when you tap on i in the icon of the book on the drive). From there, you can select your preferred reader.

There's a bug somewhere (maybe a PostScript bug related to Preview) in the Mac workflow when you Save as PDF. There is a rare occurrence where a line like that will occur, and the workaround is to repeat the Save as PDF command. The bug is rare, so you probably won't get a repeat the second time. I've encountered the bug a handful of times because I ...

In Yosemite, click the toolbox icon. The tool bar will show all the editing and annotation tools. One of them is the font configuration.

On my Preview in Mavericks it is right below the main menu bar, where I can select the Font and the size.

Try using the Terminal! Type: sips -r 5 --padColor FFFFFF test.pdf Where 5 is the degrees, FFFFFF is for white (the background) and test.pdf is your pdf. To more easily use this, try only typing sips -r 5 --padColor FFFFFF and then drag a file on the terminal. Edit: as user3439894 correctly points out this only works for single page pdf's and ...
