This is not so much a bug as a fact of glyph encoding in PDFs. There are two data elements here: the text letters that make up the ligature, and the ligature glyph itself. When text appears in a TextEdit or Word document, the underlying data maintains the fi pair of characters, but displays them as one glyph: the ligature. If the font doesn't have the ...

building on on @Bartosz Petryński's nice answer, we can make own minimal cpdf utility on top of GhostScript: brew install gs cpdf () { gs -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile="$1" "${@:2}" } then use it like: cpdf merged.pdf file1.pdf file2.pdf file3.pdf

I found a variation of Nimesh Neema’s answer that worked. In his step 3, you can slide the 2nd row of icons to the left and there is a Save to File option. I created a folder in the Keynote icon (folder?) and saved the files there. Works for files opened from a website, and it works for files in an e-mail that are Viewed in a Browser. So, not quite what was ...

I understand it wrongly first. Try first export DISPLAY=:0 And run your ssh, this might help.

Another option is an app and browser extension called Pockets, Pocket was developed for just what you want to do. It's changed some since I first used it but you can read about it at the link above. You get an extension for your browser and every time you come across something you want to read later just click the Pocket extension and the page or location is ...

You can technically install one of the many PDF viewers for iOS from the App Store, save the PDFs within the app, and you are good to go. As long as the PDF is saved locally, you won't need an active Internet or Wi-Fi connection. One of the most popular and and 1st party app is Apple Books. If you couldn't find it installed, you can open the referred link ...

This seems to be a known problem, you cannot really trust MacOS Preview to display nor preserve annotations. My current technique is to open PDF files with annotations inside of Google Docs.

Go to system preferences -> general, and uncheck "close windows when quitting". Now whichever session you want to preserve, just quit the app with that. When you reopen preview, all those files load too.

The Acrobat/Reader plug-in for Apple Safari is based on Netscape Plug-In API (NPAPI), which is supported only till Safari version 11. In Safari 12, support for NPAPI plug-ins is removed, and hence the current Acrobat/Reader plug-in will not work. For detailed information, please refer to help articles Display PDF in browser Adobe Acrobat, Acrobat Reader ...

Preview should normally print blank pages in a PDF document. They are still valid page objects. There is no setting in Preview itself to skip blank pages. It's most likely that your printer has its own setting to eliminate blank pages. You'll need to check its configuration to see if such a thing exists and is on.

I found the problem: "Use skip blank pages mode" is On by default, turn it off if you want to print blank pages.

I just drop the files, pdf or epub, onto the open iBooks window on a mac. The "Add to Library..." menu item in the Files menu also should work. This is on 10.13.4, but earlier systems behaved the same. So if you can export your books as pdf or epub documents, they should easily transfer.

There seem to be a bug at the moment i Safari for iOS as of september 2019, that prevent users from uploading pdf files unless accepting all types of files: <input type="file" accept="*" /> Normally you would specify that pdf is accepted like this: <input type="file" accept="application/pdf" />

In short: Preview cannot be changed. The problem is not one at the application level, but in the way that MacOS's Quartz engines renders images. For some reason, the OS 'sharpens the focus' of the image over half a second or so. It may be possible to change the parameters of such animated effects for a given application, but it will only be possible in ...
