Try using the Terminal! Type: sips -r 5 --padColor FFFFFF test.pdf Where 5 is the degrees, FFFFFF is for white (the background) and test.pdf is your pdf. To more easily use this, try only typing sips -r 5 --padColor FFFFFF and then drag a file on the terminal. Edit: as user3439894 correctly points out this only works for single page pdf's and ...

Rather than using Preview you could select the files in Finder and use the Quick Look icon to check the contents. I only actually use Preview for multi-page files or those with lots of detail. (I actually use similar in my File Manager QuollEyeTree which is much easier to rename.)

I am using Yosemite (10.10) but I believe this feature has existed for a long while... Simply open the file in preview and click on its name at the top of the preview window. See screenshot:

Your icon on Mail would seem to appear that Google Chrome is set to be your mail client. It works fine if Apple Mail is set as default mailer. I can't even persuade Chrome to be accepted as a mailer from RCDefaultApp. I'd certainly be tempted to try switching the default to something else.

Can you confirm that the text you are viewing is actual text, rather than an image? For example, I opened a PDF in Preview, drag-selected text, right-clicked to choose Copy. I was then able to paste that text into a text editor. Now, with respect to editing, click the Show Markup Toolbar at the top-right. From here, you can create a Text object, paste your ...

It can't be done directly. Best authority I can find to back up this statement is Linc Davis, on the Apple Support Communities. - https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3667416 It is possible to create one that way in Acrobat Pro/DC, but I'm not then certain if that would then also work in Preview.

I would say that considering Automator contains scripted actions which are based in Applescript there is indeed a way to script Preview, just depends what you're trying to do. Some perusing in the Automator actions section for Preview may yield good results. There are a number of tools I use such as rotation and scaling operations for batch processing ...

I use the View Exif app to extend the Photos app to have geo mapping visuals. It shows all the exif information I've ever needed so I'm quite happy with the value. I'm interested if there's another way, but this works great for me.

Finally the Problem has been fixed by Apple. You just have to update to Yosemite 10.10.3!

While working with doc in Preview, hit the title bar of the doc and set its status to 'Locked'. This will lock the doc in Finder. If you'll try to edit it while it's locked, then system will propose to you to Duplicate the file so you can work with the copy. Generally speaking they disabled this functionality in Yosemite since if you want to preserve ...

I think CommaToast has the right idea. OS X is probably using a lower quality rendition of the content when scrolling, to ensure that it can move quickly and smoothly, then refining the image once you are done scrolling. I have absolutely no proof of this, but this type of behavior was extremely evident in early versions of iOS. Apple loves image quality, ...

I've had that happen to me, the only workaround was to turn off Movie sync'ing in iTunes, Sync your device, then turn Movie sync'ing back on, Sync again.

Do you have "Show Preview" or "Hide Preview" in the View menu when Finder is in the foreground? You can turn the Preview off and on with SHIFT + CMD + P. However, the preview pane only works in column mode.

Before reading zinne's answer, I avoided the problem by using Quick Look instead of Preview. It can be found in the context menu of selected images, between Make alias and Share, at least in my Maverics 10.9.5.
