I was able to get this to work on 10.11.1 by adding a new key to the Preview.app plist. PVPDFSuppressSidebarOnOpening You can use the defaults write command to do this in Terminal. cd ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview/Data/Library/Preferences/ defaults write com.apple.Preview PVPDFSuppressSidebarOnOpening true

A simplified method that works just as well: Open your picture in Preview. ⌘ command + A and then ⌘ command + C to copy it to the clipboard. Go to Tools > Adjust Size... and enlarge the image to the overall size you want for the canvas. (I would make it bigger than you need as it is easy to crop at the end.) ⌘ command + A and then delete to remove the ...

If you have already successfully redeemed your code: Go to the Purchased Tab of the Mac App Store. Click the Download button on the 10.12 Developer Preview listing. It is the same process as re-downloading anything from the Mac App Store.

Here's the hack I did, maybe it will help other people: Get the size in pixels of what you want the canvas to be Generate an image of that size here: https://placehold.it/{W}x{H} (e.g. https://placehold.it/350x1136) Copy the image (Control click, copy image) Open preview, press ⌘ command + N or File > New From Clipboard In the new image, select all ( ⌘ ...

I have found a partial solution on Stackoverflow. If you activate the single page mode (cmd 2) the focus will be stay on this page after refreshing.

Maybe you could try PDFPen. It's a bit expensive thought. A trial is available https://smilesoftware.com/PDFpen/index.html For me Foxit Reader does the job.

But you can draw freehand circles in Preview, just select the shape you want to use in the upper left corner after you draw the shape. Looks like this:

A simple solution is add a blank page next to the first page of the document. So it shifts all pages. Use it from Edit > Insert Blank Page.

No, the toolbar seems to reset every time a new image is opened. However you can use the shortcut ⇧+⌘+A to toggle the option to show/hide it.

As of Yosemite, at least, there's a much easier way. Just choose Quit from the File menu. Preview will ask you if you want to review changes. If you say no, you're done!

I had the same issue on OS X 10.10.5, and removing only ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview was enough to solve. tar czf ~/preview_cache.tgz ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview/ # make a backup copy rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview/ Then, run Preview again, and if the issue is solved, you can remove the backup: rm ~/preview_cache.tgz

Also, make sure that you aren't in highlighting mode (click off the highlight tool at the top of the page) - you can't move the note around when you're highlighting.

From the Print dialogue choose the PDF button, Open PDF in Preview. The temporary copy seems just to vanish when closed, as you would want; and it has the same name and location as the original. If you markup the new copy, it creates a duplicate with new name and you choose to save or not.

Drag protocol can be a bit confusing, however, it does follow a recognisable pattern… To the same volume Drag will move - unless the file is in a protected location [root level of the volume, or in a protected System folder], in which case it will copy Opt ⌥ drag will copy Cmd ⌘ drag will override the simple drag behaviour for protected files &...

In Yosemite Preview: Select Tools > Annotate > Rectangle. This will create a rectangle with the default attributes. You can resize the rectangle with the handles. The Markup toolbar should appear automatically, but if it doesn't, choose View > Show Markup Toolbar. The second icon from the right is the fill color. Select that and click Show Colors... A ...

Two easy things come to mind: QuickLook: Just press Space on the first photo and then use the cursor keys to navigate CoverFlow: Press Cmd-4 to switch the Finder window into Coverflow mode and browse through your pictures. Setting the Finder window to fullscreen might help here

So when you make any changes to a file and 'save' it in Preview, the file is re-encoded. It must be using different settings that the program that originally created it. It has nothing to do with rotating. If it did you could try rotating it back and the file size would drop, but that's not the case. I just tried saving a TIF and I can see that Preview ...

Answering the question, you go to your gif file, select it and press your space bar on your keyboard, to open a window that shows the animation of your gif. I had installed the QuickLook plugging, thinking that will be better and easier to view, maybe in the same window of finder, but i was wrong. Instead of this, it only crashed the original configuration, ...

It's a little too obvious now. The image data is recorded as the password entry in KeyChain. So, to copy a signature, create a signature on your new Mac by camera or touchpad. Then: Find the desired "Signature Annotation Privacy" entry in KeyChain on your old Mac. Right-Click and "Copy Password to Clipboard" Paste the text (base64 is all printable) into ...

OSX 10.10 When you want to quit first close (hit the red circle) on all the windows/documents that the app has open. Then Quit the app. I have several windows/documents (in textedit) that I leave open when I quit, so they will open when I reopen the app, it works with most OSX 10.10 apps. I use them as a sort of note pad, NOTE: if the system crashes you ...

I always ⌘+W to close the current preview then compile. Preview then reopens at the last position, with modifications. It's not that convenient, but works for me.

Connect your phone. Open Image Capture from your Applications folder. In the bottom-left corner of the Image Capture window, select "Preview" where it says "Connecting this iPhone opens:" Repeat while your Nikon SD card is connected.

Open, in Preview, the documents you wish to combine and select: View > Thumbnails Do this for each document. Choose one of the documents that will become the (temporary) container document in which you'll drag and drop thumbnails from other documents to create the combined document. Note that when dragging and dropping thumbnails into the document, being ...

Preview does not support this. You need more advanced PDF editing software, like Adobe Acrobat Pro or PDF Outliner.

You could use a combination of tools to remove the old ToC, and attach a new one: use PDF SAM ("split and merge"; it's FOSS and cross-platform) to take off the old ToC; use PDF Outliner ($4.99 in Mac App store) to generate a new one. See other helpful tools in another Q&A.

After installing QLColorCode you just have to hit the spacebar to get a similar experience. To cycle through your files in list view use the up- or down-arrow. To open a chosen folder hit the right-arrow and continue cycling through your code files. To close a folder hit the left-arrow. The other view options work similar (e.g to open a folder in icon view ...

I printed and then scanned the test document using my Canon MX850 (an ink jet printer with scanner, about 6 years old). It's not perfect, but I don't see the issues (blurry text between the yellow boxes, purple stripes) that I see in your Ricoh version. So I'd guess that the problem is the Ricoh drivers. OS X 10.9.5 Printed using Preview 7.0 (826.4) ...
