The fonts are almost certainly installed and available to MacOS: it's more likely a question of whether the fonts are actually embedded in the PDF, or other font issue. If you were having text problems in the original PDF, and errors relating to fonts when converting to PS, then there's likely something wrong with the source PDF. You might want to try some ...

I can click manually on the right arrow and move to the next section, but I can't manage to have the script to do that. How can I have AppleScript "turn the page" and move to the next section? If you are trying to programmatically click the right-arrow, as shown in the image below, then the following example AppleScript code can do that: tell ...

Would like to propose a solution or at least an idea to give it a try: If your issue is that text doesn't show when using the quick look preview of a pdf (the one that shows documents by pressing spacebar on a selected file no matter where in the system: emails, file browser, etc), make sure to check if there's anything weird on your 'Font Book'. Open that, ...

Firstly, PDFs can always be edited, and if you used a decent vector artwork editor (of which Adobe Illustrator, Affinity Designer, Inkscape, and Picta Inc.'s Graphic are examples, and Preview is not), you would be able to move the line from either export method. There is no 'security' to be had. There are certainly differences between the two types of PDF ...

Preview has "Export as PDF" It's simple to use, and has always worked for me:

I have discovered that Big Sur will graciously allow a script to execute in a PDF Service, if the script is put inside an Automator workflow saved as an APPLICATION. Saving as a Print plug-in, workflow, or other type will not work. Use the 'Run Shell Script' Automator action, and place the script in there. Whether the script can call another script with the ...

I've written a python script that will add page numbers to a PDF (position of your choice, font, size, etc). It's designed to work as a Quick Action (aka Service) in an Automator workflow The Quick Action can be downloaded from here: https://github.com/benwiggy/PDFsuite/tree/master/Quick_Actions and then move it (after unzipping) to the Services folder of ...

Do not install anything else. macOS already has what you need. Just use "sips" In my example a file is called "file.jpg" and I want to convert it to "file.pdf". Accordingly, I enter this command here. sips --setProperty format pdf file.jpg --out file.pdf Now I want to convert all files with the extension ".jpg" to &...

There's probably not a realistic way to get preview to ignore the owner password, but it is fairly easy to just remove it. This answer goes into better detail, but on MacOs assuming you have homebrew first install qpdf brew install qpdf Then decrypt the pdf qpdf -decrypt my_file.pdf output_file.pdf

AFAIK, Preview has respected the security features of the PDF standard for a long time, so I don't understand/agree with the answer in the other question.** A document that has been restricted must have the password supplied to be either printed, and/or copied, and/or opened. Preview itself can add security restrictions to saved PDFs. The security is baked ...

By default, macOS does provide basic print options of paper size and orientation in the Print menu, even if you don't have a printer. (Though these may need to be 'revealed' using the "Show Details' button. However, I have always recommended that if you don't have a physical printer, there may be benefits to creating a 'Generic PostScript Printer' print ...

Later on I found the answer on MacBook Air M1 with Big Sur: When we print the page, the is a "Show Detail" or "Hide Detail" under the page sample. Click on "Show Detail" and it'd show a choice to print in Portrait or Landscape mode.
