In Mountain Lion and Mavericks, Mac's own Quick Look has GIF support, so clicking     space     or ⌘+Y while the GIF is selected will play it. It might take a second or two to load though, depending on the size of the GIF.

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

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. You should see preview of selection on other pages too. Select Tools > Crop (or Command-K). All your selected pages should be cropped. Save or Save As.

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 ...

Control click on the toolbar and add the page control field. It looks blank and has page for the help text in english. Then you can type whatever page you wish directly into the toolbar without needing to use the Command-Option-G keyboard shortcut to go to a specific page.

This happens when the image is in CMYK. PNG does not support the CMYK color mode therefore Preview won't suggest it for the export.

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.

Merged PDFs from Preview are perfectly valid and follow the standard. I've never found any incompatibilities with them. It does merge it into a single PDF, and any pages that are deleted are removed from the file. You can test this by checking file sizes first before merging, then after merging, then after deleting some pages. The only drawback I've found ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

To make Preview open PDFs in the "Two Pages" mode, go to Preferences --> PDF, then select the desired mode in the "Show as" menu. There is no shortcut to go to "Almost Fullscreen Mode" by default, but you can create one: Go to System Preferences --> Keyboard --> Shortcuts; Click "App Shortcuts"; Click the "+" button to add a new shortcut; You'll be asked ...

I have the exact same problem. While you should anonymize yourself in the prefs, I don't fully trust that method, so: Make a copy of the annotated PDF file Drag and drop to open in a text editor like TextWrangler, or hex editor like HexEdit (Don't worry about any binary-looking weird characters) Search for your name and replace with the exact same number ...

In Preview, go to preferences In the PDF tab Select show or Not show the name in the Annotations !

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.

Yes, this can be achieved solely with Preview. Show page thumbnails by clicking Thumbnails from the View Menu. Show the Edit toolbar, and choose the Rectangular Selection tool. Select the rectangle that you want to crop each page to. Select (⌘-click) all the pages that you want to crop in the page thumbnails. The pages don't have to be sequential, and ...

Click the folder icon on the top-left and press ⌘ cmd + V to paste in the icon. To revert back to the default blue folder… Get Info on the folder. Click your icon in ...

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.* ...

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 ...

The version is linked to your OS level, you are using an older version of Preview because you are using an older OS. The latest version is available as part of the latest OS. Luckily, this update is now free, so long as your machine is compatible - looks for OS X Mavericks in the App Store

Apologies if you've already tried this, but the only thing I can think to suggest is making sure that you use the "Show Details" button in the Print window: And then once you have expanded it, adjust the 'scale' settings under 'preview' You will probably not be able to make it "full bleed" -- I believe that Preview will always require some type of ...

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 ...

You could also try using ImageMagick: convert -coalesce animation.gif frame%04d.png You can install ImageMagick with brew install imagemagick or sudo port install imagemagick.

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

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 ...

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.

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 ...
