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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 - 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 ...

You can use the move tool by pressing Option+Space. The cursor will change to the hand that would allow you to scroll the content in all directions.

Select a picture or group of images from the desktop, then use the following: Option+Spacebar to launch image(s) into the full-screen slideshow mode Spacebar to pause/play the image slideshow Left Arrow to go back, Right Arrow to go forward Gesture with two-fingers left to go forward, two-finger gesture right to go back Option to view smaller images at ...

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.

The size difference of a few hundred kilobytes can be attributed to the PDF version and encoding. Recent versions of PDF introduced features to reduce the file size. These features included compressed object streams in v1.4. A PDF file can look identical but be stored on disk in nearly infinitely different forms. The application responsible for creating ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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

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

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'.

All the coverage I've seen says to run what you have and 10.10.1 will convert all pre-release versions of OS X - including the latest GM candidates to the full production version. You are free of course to go through the work to download the free version of the installer and see if it runs on your specific version of OS X but without knowing your exact ...

Please let Apple know about this regression in Preview.app's behaviour in OS X 10.10. If you have an Apple Developer ID, you can also report this via bugreporter.apple.com.

I just tested this. Clicking the Arrow tool does indeed simply add an arrow instead of having you drag it out first. I rarely if ever use the Annotate toolbar, so I am certain I have not made any changes that would have caused this. More likely, the upgrade to Yosemite changed how this tool works.

I could not find a way to do this using Preview. I tried to cheat by using the line drawing tool, and setting the color to a transparent yellow. Unfortunately, Preview doesn't seem to allow transparency with its shape tools. (To see what I mean, draw a line, then bring up the color picker window and move the Opacity slider around -- it's either all or ...

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 ...
