There are two possible issues at play here. The first is a file association issue. If you right-click the file, and choose Open With, does it show Preview (default) at the top? If not, then it's a file association issue. The second is either a) file permissions issue; or b) corrupt file. For instance, you may be able to view the file listing on the remote ...

I dont think such a portable editable document can be made in preview. It will export in these formats. I don't know about HEIC and OpenEXR, but none of the others would allow such modifications AFAIK, if done from Preview.

When I have this issue, or similar ones with Preview, always remember to zoom the image in. When zoomed in, it is easier to select shapes and such because the ovals become smaller as a percentage of the image. On the subject, I wish someone would send me the OS X Preview source code so I can fix the infuriating bug where a selected object moves the tiniest ...

In my case it was the plugin qlcolorcode that was failing, thus prevent the preview to work.

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.

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 ...

I would suggest using GIMP for this. Firstly, import your image, right-click on it, and select Image -> Crop to Content: This ensures that the canvas is the same size as your image so that if you hover at the top left of the image, the coordinate display at the bottom left shows 0, 0: I found this to be superior to the Cmd + Shift + 4 method in Preview....
