Open the two PDFs with Preview Drag the thumbnails of the second PDF to the end of the first PDF but above the grey line (marked with the red arrow): and finally export the resulting PDF to a third PDF. If your first PDF contains just one page this doesn't work. Workaround 1: Open your second PDF, then open the first PDF, drag the single page to the ...

This is not a bug, although I can certainly see why it looks like one. That little symbol is a pipe ( | ), not the letter I. The pipe is the upper character on the backslash ( \ ) key. So to type ⌘-|, the physical keys you need to press are: ⌘-Shift-\. The difference between "|" and "I" was more pronounced back when Lucida Grande was the system font (in ...

You can move those files directly to the Trash. Select them in Preview Drag them above the Trash in the Dock Wait for ~2 seconds Finder window will appear and you can drop those files. However you won't be able to empty the Trash without closing the Preview window first (the file is still in use).

Just drag the cursor starting from the direction where you want the point to be.

Yes! You can drag the text bubble bounding box (the blue dots that you would use to resize the bubble) over to the other side. This effectively over-"resizes" the bubble so it is mirrored.

You can simply drag the corner selection (the round dot) to the other side Like this

I have found a solution to this problem: replacing Yosemite's PDFKit with Mavericks' PDFKit. As simple as that. I replaced the contents of /System/Library/Frameworks/Quartz.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/PDFKit.framework/Versions/A and everything is working fine now. For those who don't have a copy of Mavericks from where you can take the PDFKit files, I ...

It seems this fixed it for me: defaults delete com.apple.finder QLEnableTextSelection && killall Finder I turned text selection in the Quick Look Window on a long time ago. After disabling it, the bug is gone

You need to disable Preview's automatic termination. defaults write com.apple.Preview NSDisableAutomaticTermination -bool TRUE && killall -HUP Finder This is due to Lion's automatic termination which was introduced so that apps which have no windows open and are not performing a task can be quit to save system resources. Generally it's good to ...

Had the same problem. It's simply in the prefernces setup "open images in one window"

Instead of using Bookmarks, you can use Notes as the replacement to use custom title for bookmarked pages. They serve the same function, with Notes having more versatile usage. Show the Highlights & Notes in sidebar by pressing Command+Option+4. To create a note, you can choose Tools > Annotate > Notes or by pressing Command+Control+N. Select ...

Preview.app doesn't have command line options, but you could use AppleScript in Terminal: open -a Preview somefile.png ; /usr/bin/osascript -e 'tell application "Preview"' -e "activate" -e 'tell application "System Events"' -e 'keystroke "f" using {control down, command down}' -e "end tell" -e "end tell" Just replace somefile.png with the path/image you ...

Simply ⌘+Click on it's name in the title bar. (I have a polish OS X on the screenshot)

As you know, per your question, the preferences in the Preview app only apply to documents when first opened. It seems that OS X has a built in default view for full screen documents. I tried a couple things... I opened a PDF to Full Screen and set the view to Continuous to see if this would stick and that view would be chosen next time I went full screen. ...

I'd Force-Quit it then clear the saved state. From Finder Cmd ⌘ N Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ G Copy/paste ~/Library/Saved Application State Delete the folder com.apple.Preview.savedState Relaunch Preview.

You are going into 'Slide show' not full screen. This maybe because you are using the wrong shortcut keys. For Slide show: cmd+shift+f For full screen: cmd+crtl+f

Preview won't allow you to cmd-delete, or "move to trash", or even drag and drop to trash, the last file it has open. This "feature" was introduced in Lion, and you're not the first person to lament it's inclusion online. The only useful solution I've found is to create an Apple Script Application that deletes any item dragged on to it and put this ...

If you don't want any borders, create a custom paper size and change paper size to 0 as shown below: Name your custom paper size, use it and create PDF.

Apparently in Yosemite, Preview doesn't use LCD font smoothing (subpixel rendering) even if LCD font smoothing is enabled from System Preferences. Skim never uses LCD font smoothing either, but the way text is rendered depends on the AppleFontSmoothing setting or whether LCD font smoothing is enabled from System Preferences. Commands like defaults write ...

Just like you would with a Google search, use the double quotes operator to tell Preview the result must be an exact match. In your case, for example, typing "formation water" should yield the desired result.

Yes, Preview in OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) has a freehand tool. Access it within Preview from the "Markup Toolbar" icon of the .JPG or .PDF file you have open. When you click on that icon, the Markup toolbar appears, and the freehand "sketch" tool is the 3rd icon from the left, in blue in the image below. and it offers a smoothing option as well as ...

An App Preview is an optional short video demonstrating your app. Your app may have one App Preview per device. The specifications for App Previews are given in App Preview Properties. Source: developer.apple.com

In the end I only uploaded 3 videos - iPhone 5 resolution, iPhone 6 resolution and iPad resolution. When I visited the app on the App Store on an iPhone 6 PLUS - the iPhone 6 video was shown. So it looks like larger iPhones will fallback to smaller videos if the larger preview video is not present. Presumably the iPhone 6 will fallback to the iPhone 5 video ...

There seems to be no way to make Preview.app do this, but Skim offers this feature. On my system, using pdflatex, Skim will 'jerk' for a split second as it reloads, but it does return to the right position on the current page.

You might want to use and Open two instances of Preview at once. Unfortunately, Preview (like most Mac OS X applications) lets you have just one instance of a file open at a time. But there’s a way around that restriction. The open command line program accepts a parameter -n that allows it to launch the application again, even if it’s already ...
