No, the iPad 'App Preview' video will only be visible for users who are viewing your app page from an iPad. For iPhone users you would ideally upload three video at the following resolutions: 640 x 1136 (iPhone 5), 750 x 1334 (iPhone 6) or 1080 x 1920 (iPhone 6 plus). If however you decide to only upload one video (say 750 x 1334) larger iPhones will ...

Using filemon from the book "Mac OS X Internals - To The Apple's Core" it appears the only Preview related file that's modified if all I do is open, e.g. a .pdf document in Preview and close it to a different page is the com.apple.Preview.ViewState.plist file located at: /Users/$USER/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview/Data/Library/Preferences/ The file ...

By definition, either Acrobat or Adobe Reader would be considered standards for viewing a given PDF. Since your PDF does not display the embedded video in Preview, this would indicate a bug within Preview that needs to be reported to Apple. In addition to decribing how you created the PDF, they'd need a copy of that PDF for testing.

I've noticed this with images as well. When I open one in Preview, make changes to it, and "force quit" Preview, the changes persist even though I never saved them. I believe this happens because Preview autosaves your work by overwriting the original file. Most user don't notice this because when they close the program normally without saving, it reverts ...

This happens to me once. Have you used 'Text' tool from the markup toolbar? If so, the font you used before might not be available with your current setup. If you remember which font it was, install it. Preview.app should open fine after.

It could be an issue with one of the files preview is attempting to open. Go to ~/Library/Saved Application State/ Remove the com.Apple.Preview folder. This should resolve the issue when attempting to launch Preview after quitting the application from the above answer or shutting down.

I had the same problem. Workaround: sudo killall launchservicesd

in Preview with the picture open: when it fills the window completely, click on it with CMD - (command plus the minus sign). this will give you manipulation space. then place the mouse pointer inside the picture, a + sign appears, drag this to where you want to start, a blue drag line appears, place it around the picture completely; then when you want to the ...

I needed something very similar (coordinates of bounding boxes around certain objects in image for computer vision research). I build a simple tool that runs in the browser: http://nicodjimenez.github.io/boxLabel/annotate.html

What I ended up doing was simply break the textbook chapters into individual PDF files. Not the ideal solution, but at least the saving process for highlighting is relatively quick with chapter files.

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 ...

Does the file display properly in Acrobat/Reader? It is well known that there are crappy and very crappy PDF viewers out there, which can be overwhelmed with a particular PDF. Second check (in Acrobat/Reader using Cmd-D to display the document properties dialog) is whether all fonts are embedded. Also check whether "using local fonts" is deactivated.

Though Adobe Acrobat (and Adobe Reader) is the official standard tool for displaying PDFs, there are a variety of third-party tools that could have been used to create a given PDF. Though the output from such third-party tools can be passable, the underlying construction of the page layout can vary wildly. Using Adobe Acrobat, it is possible to use [Cmd + ...

As of June 11 2015 I have not found a solution how to rename a file while in Preview on Mavericks. (10.9.5) There is also no Save-as function so any changes are saved over the original file. The defaults write com.apple.Preview ApplePersistence -bool no does nothing. My work around is to use the "Export" where I can rename and save the file.
