I've used Free Ruler for Mac OS X in the past. I'm amazed that still works just fine. However, it does not allow click-through.

When you try to print, sometimes you get the pages displayed rotated at 90 degrees, which is annoying. You could rotate all of them with one click from the PDF viewer but you will have to do that every time you open the file. Instead, follow the top answer and when print to PDF, just uncheck Auto Rotate (preferred) OR select the horizontal orientation (hack)...

It's highly unlikely that spilt water on your keyboard will result in your photos becoming pixelated. Instead, it's much more likely that spilt water will damage some of the components of your MBP (depending on what you did immediately after the spill and how long it's been since).

Images for most document types are provided by the application associated with that document type. For example, if you have TextEdit set as the default application for opening .txt files, the Finder will use an icon from TextEdit.app/Contents/Resources for those files (the exact icon file is controlled by TextEdit.app/Contents/Info.plist). But if you switch ...

Kevin is right. Not sure why Keynote wants to copy a link to media on drag from websites. Something to do with copyrights and attribution, I'm guessing. I'm not sure of your skill level, so I will try to be detailed (which may help someone else, as well). Right-click (or control-click) the image you want.

In addition tp @samh correct answer, when you save a jpeg in preview you get a slider to set the quality. Underneath the slider is the file size. You can see how the size varies with quality. I don't know what determines the quality but it effects the file size.

Mac OS hasn't actually generated the new image when it gives the estimated size. With JPEG images, the content of the image affects the file size because image complexity impacts the ability for the algorithm to compress the file. What you see before completing the resize is Preview's best estimate.

Next to an Automator script or a commercial tool to solve for multi-page PDFs, another option is to use ImageMagick's convert tool. For example executing the following from the same directory: for i in *; do magick convert -density 300 ./$i -depth 8 ./$i.tiff; done

A third, more crude method, which you can use if a certain part of your doodle requires background lines/grids is taking screenshot of the doodle. Step 1; Expand the note using the button in the top right of the screen. Step 2; Hide the panel showing pens and colors using the “x” at the bottom right of the panel. Step 3; Take a screenshot by pressing the ...
