Apparently Preview (and Skim and other PDF views) don't use subpixel rendering (or LCD font smoothing as Apple calls it) in 10.10 even if LCD font smoothing is enabled from System Preferences. In Preview text always looks the same way as it did in 10.9 with LCD font smoothing disabled. In Skim it depends on the AppleFontSmoothing setting, but Skim never uses ...

All the coverage I've seen says to run what you have and 10.10.1 will convert all pre-release versions of OS X - including the latest GM candidates to the full production version. You are free of course to go through the work to download the free version of the installer and see if it runs on your specific version of OS X but without knowing your exact ...

I'm actually guilty here because it was me who discovered the "default write" command a few years ago that activated the hidden text selection feature. It was in my book Mac Kung Fu. In addition to the above solution, I'd add that the following might be needed, depending on how you implemented text selection in Quick Look: defaults delete -g ...

You might want to use and Open two instances of Preview at once. Unfortunately, Preview (like most Mac OS X applications) lets you have just one instance of a file open at a time. But there’s a way around that restriction. The open command line program accepts a parameter -n that allows it to launch the application again, even if it’s already ...
