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).

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

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 ...

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 ...

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

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.

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

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

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

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 ...

Look at /Users/(your user)/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview/Data/Library/Autosave Information/ That's where mine are right now.

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.

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

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.

Install QLStephen, a QuickLook plugin that enables viewing of text files with arbitrary filetypes.
