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 ...

I haven't had a chance to try this out yet, but the KeyChain entries actually contain a Base64 encoded plist file that appears to contain the data for the signature itself. I tried to decode the NSMutableData object saved in the plist file, but couldn't get past that point. My assumption at this point is that one might be able to "share" the keychain entry ...

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.

I'm glad that you hesitated to reinstall the OS because of problems with one app. I saw this on 10.10.1 and actually it has gotten worse on 10.10.2. It's not search per se, but just opening certain kinds of PDFs that have been cropped using a Java-based tool called "Briss" (which converts 2-up scans to 1-up). I think that this is a Yosemite bug that hasn't ...

The problem remains a serious one. In Preview 7.0 (Mac Os 10.9.5.) I generated a pdf using Acrobat 9.5.5. that resulted in a 5 MB file. In Preview I added exactly 12 characters (using the edit tools). After saving this file it balooned to 14 MB. You can fix it by opening and saving again in Acrobat (may have to use the "reduce file size" option).

Writable or fillable PDF files allow you to include text directly on the PDF file and save the document as if you were filling it out with a pen or pencil. Your Mac includes the Preview application built into the operating system that comes with all the tools you'll need to work with PDF documents. Use the extended toolbar to change the Font of your text ...

A great PDF compressor is Ghostscript (gs), which is native in most Linux distributions and easily installable for Mac OS X and Windows. Daniel summarizes summarizes it best here, with the key quote being his preferred options: gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dNOPAUSE -dQUIET -dBATCH \ -sOutputFile=foo-compressed.pdf foo.pdf
