So when you make any changes to a file and 'save' it in Preview, the file is re-encoded. It must be using different settings that the program that originally created it. It has nothing to do with rotating. If it did you could try rotating it back and the file size would drop, but that's not the case. I just tried saving a TIF and I can see that Preview ...

@Feanux I was answering your question and then you deleted it but I see you reposted it, anyway I have made a Automator app that does this and will attach a screenshot (that was taken by Automator). As you can see it takes two screenshots, one for clipboard and one for preview/save UPDATE:

Pressing Cmd 2 at the beginning of the presentation in Full Screen Mode seems to solve this problem

I use keyboard maestro to effectively "pin" the menu to show. I just setup a rule so when the window title changes in preview it selects "show markup toolbar" if the menu option is available. Technically it is clicking the menu, but it happens so fast it just looks like it's always on. Al

Turned out my problem was that the scanner wasn't connected. Plugging in the USB helped a lot.

This is not a "permanent" change, but it speeds up the inconvenience of needing to use the "Tools" menu, by adding a keyboard shortcut: Here is the first option for something you can do: CREATING A KEYBOARD SHORTCUT Open System Preferences Click "Keyboard" Open the tab titled "Shortcuts" Scroll down to the last item on the left-hand frame's list: "App ...

I develop a file search tool that is based upon Spotlight: HoudahSpot. In addition to the Quick Look preview, HoudahSpot provides a text preview. This shows a plain text version of the selected search result. If you found the file by searching for text content, text preview will automatically highlight the words you searched for and scroll to the first ...

The subject of redation of PDF files seems to be a difficult subject concerning programming. As Acrobat Pro CD is much to expensive for me as a private non-profit user, I was looking for an alternativ. It took me rather long time to find a real good alternative to Acrobat Pro: PDF Studio PRO from Qoppa (http://www.qoppa.com/pdfstudio/): This tool really ...

I found PDFtk Server and Coherent PDF Command Line Tools have a wide range of PDF command line utilities. I've used both tools on and off, but never needed to do any TOC work. The Bookmarks section in Coherent's Usage Examples Page looks like it may be an approach to experiment with: 6. Bookmarks cpdf -list-bookmarks in.pdf List the bookmarks in in.pdf. ...

There no easy way to do this with Preview as of v8. You should request the feature with Apple. The best way to do this is to print the PDF with Acrobat instead. I'm testing with Acrobat Standard Pro v10.1. There, in the print dialog, you can can choose to print only the document or the document with markup. The solution by I'L'I will only remove ...

In your comments, you describe the problem being the need to navigate to open the file. I think I understand what you mean: there's no history in the open-file dialog, so when you use "open file" in another application, the location it first presents is not where you saved the file. Consequently, you have to navigate around (within the open-file dialog) to ...

You cannot remove a Preview.app signature in Yosemite. This is a bug. It would almost make sense if signing a document froze the entire document,but you can edit every other annotation. I've tried masking a signature with a filled box, then overlaying a signature on that. It seems to work and the document saves, but on opening tne new signature is gone. ...

I know this is an old question, but I have found another solution that might be of interest. Create a "Trash folder" on your desktop that is symbolically linked to the actual Trash directory. (Follow the directions at http://osxdaily.com/2010/07/29/add-a-trash-icon-to-the-desktop/ to see how it's done.) Inside Preview.app, click on the filename in the ...

There is a way to do it in Terminal. In Adobe Acrobat, save file as a Postscript file. I generally save it to my desktop. Then, open Terminal and browse to desktop by typing cd ~/Desktop. Then, enter the command pstopdf filename.ps On the desktop, there should be a new PDF file. It can now be opened by Preview.
