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 ...

The Toolbar on the Preview App is handy for basic editing, but more detailed work would require a proper photo editing application. The Photos app provides some basic editing such as color correction and rotation. However it does not (correct me if I am wrong) allow for working Alpha channels or layers. There are several third party apps available on the ...

It's not the best way, but it works: Open Terminal.app, type dirname (with space), drug file into Terminal.app, and you'll see full escaped path of file (with \ symbols if there're some spaces around). Press Enter and this command prints full path without escapes, copy this output (with ⌘Cmd-C) with Finder.app type ⌘Cmd-Shift-G to open this directory. ...

Dagremu's suggestion is a great one. While his trick might not work when he was writing, I am able to use line tool to highlight a line as shown in the screen capture below. This is an important improvement for Preview!

When you open a file in Preview.app, then close the last window, Preview appears to shutdown too. It disappears from the Dock. However, if you check your Activity Monitor.app, Preview actually isn't shutdown. It still is listed in the CPU and Memory tab of Activity Monitor. For me, Preview is taking up 60MB of memory and it appears to be closed. It's ...

Unfortunately, I was unable to find a way to exactly imitate the desired behavior. You may have to simply create the outlined text in a different application and import it into Preview. However, while it might not be exactly what you're looking for, you can create text with a background color. To do so, bring up the markup toolbar and create a new text box. ...

I believe you are using the free version of Adobe Acrobat/Reader. On the Windows side of things if you are using Adobe Reader there is no UI or interface for changing the font. If you are using Adobe Acrobat Pro/Standard you can change the font. One workaround I have found is copy some text with the font you want to use from another application and paste ...

Intheory, s.o. could copy this or clone this file, name it document.wflow and put it inside a folder structure like this /pdfToJpeg.workflow/Contents/document.wflow and open it in Automator. This is the structure of a .workflow file when you look at Package Content. This workflow will ask for a file to select, extract any page as pdf, rename each file ...

I’ve got it. I think. Took me a long time but I think I have worked out what’s happening. Hopefully this might be helpful to someone else. First of all I noticed locking the file in the Finder seemed to stop Preview remembering a different page. So if I opened the PDF on page 1 and then scrolled to page 10 it wouldn’t remember the PDF was on page 10 anymore ...
