I was using Preview to annotate a screenshot for a question on Apple.StackExchange.com and I saved it. For some reason, it only saved my annotation. I must've spaced out and accidentally pressed something, but what might that something be? enter image description here

  • What version of Mac OS X are you using, and what version of Preview?

  • I was using Snow Leopard at the time. I'm on Lion now, no repro, so...

Select All and Delete would have been done the trick :) You've deleted the screenshot (which was in the background) but kept the annotations.

  • This happened again! It's not that...

  • Do you recall this time what happened?

  • I annotated a screenshot and then I tried to save it. Save thing happened.

  • Does it happen every time you try it or just at random?

  • It seems to be at random. I think it's happened when I did a combination of crop and annotate, but I don't think it was consistent.
