It's possible to do this by copying or opening the object in a separated window, then there you can rotate it. Next, just copy back the object already at the desired position. This is the only way I've found, and works for quick tasks.

Not in a copy/pasteable format, but if you right-click the file name in TextEdit or Preview, it will show the path as a graphical hierarchy. Copy/pasteable would be Get Info on the file from the Finder, I guess. Depending on the target application you can also just drag the icon from the application, e.g. into Terminal.

A year late but may help others: For me escaping it in double bracket works so try searching ":" or "?". Escaping in double quotes searches for whatever is between the quotes similar to the way google does their search options.

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 can be a few reasons for this to happen, but the most likely cause is a disk permissions problem. Disk permissions are flags set for each item in the file system. They define whether an item can be read, written to, or executed. The LSOpenURLsWithRole is a function that is used to associate a file with a program. Open Disk Utility in your Utility ...

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.

For troubleshooting isolation, what if you use Adobe Reader, Is the rendering clear using a dedicated software ? edit : It appears that Preview is no longer using subpixel rendering in Yosemite.

There is a function called Folder Action. Right click on the originating folder. Select Folder action Now select the Action you want (in your case Duplicate) You can modify the script if you want to to suit your needs, but it will basically make copies of files at the moment they are added to the original folder in a newly created folder.

Well Adobe Reader's slow page scrolling is simply unbearable. In the end I decided to use Skim, which a lot of people seem to be using as default PDF viewer on OS X already. I'll only use Adobe Reader if I'm dealing with very important/complicated document, or if I want to change the background color of the document when I read.
