Yes. Open a PDF. If not already enabled, View → Thumbnails. Select some pages (click first then select all; command+click or shift+click) Use the rectangle tool to select region on page. (On versions of OS X prior to 10.9, you should see a preview of the selection on other pages too). Select Tools → Crop (or Command+K). All your selected pages should 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

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 ...

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 ...

Just adding support to find an answer to this issue. I suppose in the meantime do this: defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitOmitPDFSupport -bool NO

Holding ⌥ alt/option down while clicking it makes it download it. That is with the old hack still marked YES. Not the best solution, but will do for the time being.

The first thing to try when encountering something like this is to move the preferences files to a new folder. I usually put them on the Desktop. First, Quit Preview and then go to the Finder and move these files to the Desktop: /Users/<short user name>/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview /Users/<short user name>/Library/com.apple.preview.* ...

A preference for changing the default view mode was added in 10.8: I don't know any way to change the default view mode in 10.7.

Download those filters: https://github.com/joshcarr/Apple-Quartz-Filters/archive/master.zip Copy them in your mac or user Library ( /Library or /Users/YOURUSERNAME/Library) In a Folder named "Filters" (create if doesn't exist). Open Preview and export as a PDF. Try some of new filter since when you reach the right weight for your pdf.

As markhunte said, NSAppleScriptEnabled is set to true by default in Preview's Info.plist in 10.9. So Preview has a basic AppleScript dictionary, and tell application "Preview" to properties works by default. In 10.8 or earlier versions of OS X you can set NSAppleScriptEnabled to true manually: defaults write com.apple.Preview NSAppleScriptEnabled -bool ...

Yes - you can use Automator to make a service for Finder (or all applications) to perform rotation of images. Then you can assign a keyboard shortcut to that action. I'm not aware of quicklook plug-in that rotate, but that's something that might exist. Modifying finder's shortcut bar might be the least likely way to activate things, but hopefully an ...

I'm afraid this is not possbile anymore as Apple removed the workaround via the Fonts-Menu. Discussed in the Apple Support Forum here : https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4145911?start=15&tstart=0 (same problem with underline colors) and on MacRumors here : http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1658053 where they discussed what has changed ...

Go to ~/Library/Keychains on your new Mac and make a copy/backup of your actual login.keychain with cmd D Copy the old login.keychain in /Users/old_user_name/Library/Keychains from the backup to your desktop and rename it to loginold.keychain Open Keychain Access.app and choose File -> 'Add Keychain...' in the menu, navigate to your desktop and select ...

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. ...

The following solution below works well (for me) but misses a few steps. Here is what I did: Quit Safari Find both the AdobePDFViewerNPAPI.plugin and the AdobePDFViewer.plugin files in "Library/Internet Plug-Ins" Copy both files to your desktop (you might be prompted for the admin password) -- leave this folder open as well Right-click on one of the files ...

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 ...

Short answer: you can’t. This is a bug in Mavericks. What I do is: Open the group of images Close all windows in Preview if it has opened more than one window (shortcut: ⌘altw) Re-open the same group of images Most of the time, I have all my images in one window the second time I open them.

I just started using MacGhostView and I have hand-generated .ps files that run other .ps files using the run command. I get Error: /invalidfileaccess in --run-- in a message window. By default the SAFER option for ghostscript is usually enabled in all versions of GhostView, which this app is based on. It is a security precaution that prevents a script from ...

Sounds like the search is actually a Regular Expression search, and by enclosing your search term in brackets, instead of searching for the word 'concept' you were searching for the presence of the letters 'c', 'o', 'n', 'e', 'p' and 't'.

Appearance Control Panel in System Preferences I believe you may find what you are hoping to accomplish by checking here, which describes how to disable the autosave function, which is not what you are looking for... but in the top most screenshot is the Appearance Control Panel (/Applications/System Preferences.app/Appearance Control Panel) there is a ...

No. To follow your first example, the Finder is the active application at the time you hit ⌘+w to close the second Finder window. So you remain in the Finder and the first Finder window is brought to the front. One thing you could do is switch back to Chrome first (e.g. with ⌘+tab), then click the second Finder window's close button (assuming it isn't ...

Adobe Reader can do this, too: It includes a Poster Print option in its custom print dialog. It’s the first time I missed a feature from Preview (or the native OS X print dialog) that Adobe Reader has. Adobe Reader is free (as in beer) software, it used to be called Acrobat Reader. (Do not confuse it with full-blown Acrobat or any other expensive Adobe ...

This isn't a bug, it's a feature, designed to replicate a real-life highlighter. The highlight feature works the same in the new iBooks, as well as iBooks for iOS. There is currently no way to change this. You can provide feedback to Apple regarding this at the following page: http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html
