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 ...

The filesystem and metadata can change when preview has write access to the file. The precise why is probably complicated, but you can prevent it by removing write access (chmod a-w test.pdf) and then using preview on the file. Note, the chmod updates the ctime as well. My guess is that metadata fields like kMDItemUsedDates and kMDItemLastUsedDate are the ...

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 ...

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 ...

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).

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.

Certain PDF files (dynamic XFA forms) created in Adobe LiveCycle can only be opened in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat. When you try to open these files in an alternative PDF viewer, then you will see this error message. Unfortunately, it's not easy remove this message and modify the PDF so that it can be opened in alternative PDF viewers. The person who ...

Preview only works with PDF files and some image files (png, jpg, gif, tiff, bmp) so you won't be able to open a text file on Preview. To open your info.txt file from terminal you need to choose an application that can open text files, like TextEdit or any other text editor. You also could use open -e file, to open any file using TextEdit.

The Preview does not lower the image quality, but will fit it in the given parameters. If you use Preview to open a original image: Example: 5.5 MB file size with Dimensions of 3648 × 2736 pixels Now open the Preview Tools - Adjust Size to see the current settings. The default resolution is set to 72 which is standard for web applications. In that ...

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 ...

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.

This is only possible when editing a pdf. It isn't possible to apply a single crop to many images that are in separate files. In order to do this, one way would be to Combine the images into a single pdf Open all of them in a single window. Use "Print" then "Save as pdf." Use the technique described in the other answer to crop all pages of the ...

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

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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Finally the Problem has been fixed by Apple. You just have to update to Yosemite 10.10.3!

I am using Yosemite (10.10) but I believe this feature has existed for a long while... Simply open the file in preview and click on its name at the top of the preview window. See screenshot:

On my Preview in Mavericks it is right below the main menu bar, where I can select the Font and the size.

Your icon on Mail would seem to appear that Google Chrome is set to be your mail client. It works fine if Apple Mail is set as default mailer. I can't even persuade Chrome to be accepted as a mailer from RCDefaultApp. I'd certainly be tempted to try switching the default to something else.

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 ...
