You could use a combination of tools to remove the old ToC, and attach a new one: use PDF SAM ("split and merge"; it's FOSS and cross-platform) to take off the old ToC; use PDF Outliner ($4.99 in Mac App store) to generate a new one. See other helpful tools in another Q&A.

Preview does not support this. You need more advanced PDF editing software, like Adobe Acrobat Pro or PDF Outliner.

It's a little too obvious now. The image data is recorded as the password entry in KeyChain. So, to copy a signature, create a signature on your new Mac by camera or touchpad. Then: Find the desired "Signature Annotation Privacy" entry in KeyChain on your old Mac. Right-Click and "Copy Password to Clipboard" Paste the text (base64 is all printable) into ...

I had the same issue on OS X 10.10.5, and removing only ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview was enough to solve. tar czf ~/preview_cache.tgz ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview/ # make a backup copy rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview/ Then, run Preview again, and if the issue is solved, you can remove the backup: rm ~/preview_cache.tgz

If you're wondering about the whole LaTeX thingy, have you ever considered another LaTeX compiler? I normally use texmaker because it has a built-in pdf viewer and i love it! Instead if you want the behaviour back by default, i reckon it can't be done (same behaviour on OS X 10.10 Yosemite and OS X 10.11 El Capitan)

If you uninstall this software does Preview behave? It is likely an interaction with Preview and this software. And maybe something else on your system. I would suggest contacting support on this product directly.

In my copy of preview, if I go to the View menu and select "Customize Toolbar..." I have a list of all commands that can be added to the toolbar. Just drag them from the sheet sheet that slides down to the tool bar and you are good to go.

One approach is to use Acrobat to add the links. When manually adding links, you specify the view to which the link points. With that, you can set the exact place where the linked to document opens. If you have suitable software to create your "second" document, you can use Named Destinations, which can be used as target for the link.

It seems that was just an outdated version of preview. In the new version the button is called Markup and is in the same location.

As of Yosemite, at least, there's a much easier way. Just choose Quit from the File menu. Preview will ask you if you want to review changes. If you say no, you're done!

If you don't apply it to "Preview" but to "All Applications" in "System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> App Shortcuts" any unused shortcut will work: and the resulting Preview menu:

It is unfortunatly impossible. At the file system level, there are only 3 dates associated with any file or directory: access time creation time modification time The access time is modified upon opening a file. The modification time is modified upon writing the file. None of these 3 dates is modified upon closing a file. Hence the file system doesn't ...

One way to see all files you have used over the past nth days, weeks or month is to create a Smart Folder. One can use very sophisticated search terms and filters or make a few simple rules. Open a Finder window Select File > New Smart Folder or ⌥+⌘+N Add your criteria [File type(s), last opened or last modified, etc.] Now, you can keep an ...

I am not really sure, but if you could at least open the file with Preview app, there might be an option to revert to previous version from the File menu.

Here's the hack I did, maybe it will help other people: Get the size in pixels of what you want the canvas to be Generate an image of that size here: https://placehold.it/{W}x{H} (e.g. https://placehold.it/350x1136) Copy the image (Control click, copy image) Open preview, press ⌘ command + N or File > New From Clipboard In the new image, select all ( ⌘ ...

Open, in Preview, the documents you wish to combine and select: View > Thumbnails Do this for each document. Choose one of the documents that will become the (temporary) container document in which you'll drag and drop thumbnails from other documents to create the combined document. Note that when dragging and dropping thumbnails into the document, being ...

OSX 10.10 When you want to quit first close (hit the red circle) on all the windows/documents that the app has open. Then Quit the app. I have several windows/documents (in textedit) that I leave open when I quit, so they will open when I reopen the app, it works with most OSX 10.10 apps. I use them as a sort of note pad, NOTE: if the system crashes you ...
