OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Preview Show Text Of An Annotation In Sidebar
May 11, 2012
I have several PDF docs with several annotations in them. When I show the sidebar in Preview it lists page, type, date, and author, but does not display the words in the annotations!With a long of annotations that only identify themselves by "Text", it's laborious to find the note one is looking for. (One has to manually step through each one at a time!)†
Info:MacBook Pro early 2008, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Time for a new computer!
There are following problems with two PDF Files.¬†When I open the PDF with preview 5.0.3 in main window there is an other chapter as I have mark in the sidebar.There is allway a different of one chapter between mainwindow and sidebar.
This failure are in two PDFs.The PDFs are manuals of DEVONthink, not the help of DEVONthink. There is no problem when I open this PDFs with Acrobat Reader 9.5.0. Sidebar and main windwow the same chapter when I mark it in sidebar.¬†
I use Mac OS X 10.6.8.¬†Can someone give an explanation of this bug ?¬†
I frequently use Preview to annotate PDFs and screen shots, and every time I add a text box annotation it is formatted to center the text in the box.† Is there any way to change that so that text is aligned with the left side of the box?
Out of the blue the sidebar on the left of the finder just disapeared.¬†
I searched and foud some fixes like deleting .plist file and clicking the oval button on the top right of finder, and nothing works.¬†
I know when I click on the oval it's suppos to appear, but it's not. The only thing that happens is that the top part hides and appears.¬†I just want to get my finder the way it was. I actually have folders there for quick access and now it's gone.¬†
I'd like to make sidebar visible in Preview v. 4.2 every time I open a PDF document. In Preferences, the "Open Sidebar Only for TOC" is unchecked and according to this thread, it seems that Sidebar should always open otherwise. Mine doesn't & I have to open manually for each file.
So I found the lost project in FCPX.¬† It has a music tract, text and video.¬† When I pulled the project down for editing, I am able to separate the music from the video, but the text bubbles do not appear above the video allowing me to change the misspelled words that need editing.I've searched all of my backup drives for the original footage in case I have to re-edit the whole thing, but I'm unable to find the original footage.¬† Every event in my libraries appears as a finished project.
In fullscreen preview, when I select the second or third view from the left ("thumbnails" or "table of contents") the document leaves space for the sidebar to appear. The issue comes whenever I switch from the app. Once I come back, the sidebar autohides leaving the linen background where the sidebar once was. What's the point in leaving that unocupied space if the sidebar is going to autohide?†How do I disable autohide sidebar in the "thumbnails" and "table of contents" view?
In Leopard the Finder sidebar text was always too small. Is there a way to control the font size in Snow Leopard, maybe through the Terminal if anyone knows? Apple made everything else resizable in the new Finder but I can't figure out the sidebar text.
Snow Leopard's Preview can no longer do a search for dollar amounts accurately. This worked just fine in Leopard, but no longer works in Snow Leopard. Go ahead and download a PDF of your most recent bank statement, or any PDF that has a bunch of dollar amounts in it. Then, do a find for one of the dollar amounts. For example, do a find for: 50.00
Preview will no longer find a match for 50.00... instead, it will find any instance of "50" or "00" in your entire PDF file. It uses the decimal point as some sort of a delimiter, and it makes Preview believe that you are doing 2 completely separate searches.
I opened a PDF to crop some parts of the file and there are two big issues: 1. I cannot crop multiple pages anymore. There just isn't that option in Inspector or anywhere else. I can only crop one page at a time. 2. Not only can I not crop more than one page at a time, but cropping doesn't actually delete the date. I can go to "View | PDF Display | Crop Box" and see what I just cropped!
Since I upgraded to Snow Leopard, I've been noticing that Preview does not display images. A box will open and the background will be there, but no picture. I can scan images, and the automatic preview image that pops up is blank. I can download images from the internet, and they will appear as icons on my desktop, but when I double click them I get an appropriately sized blank Preview box. I can save the image to a thumb drive and put it on my girlfriend's computer (we run identical iMacs, for reference), and it will appear on her computer, but she is using the Adobe suite.
Why is it that when you have a Word document, you cannot open it with Preview application,but if you pretend you are printing it, then you can preview it in Preview, - same Preview application.So why Preview cannot open the same Word document ?
I have a lot of multipage pdf's that I need to reduce in file size. They are scanned pdf's so no actual editable content.
If i select a page and 'save as' I can save to jpeg where I can reset the dpi of the page (currently 300dpi). This is Fine, but I need to do it to all the pages of the pdf. If I select all pages 'save as' will only save out one page and not all.
If I print and choose 'pdf to jpeg', It will save out all pages but I don't get the ability to reduce to dpi and the output jpgs are still huge.¬†Is there a way to save to pages out in one go to jpeg where I can adjust the dpi setting?
I have tried using the reduce file size option, but the resulting pdf has lost too much quality and is unreadable. Once I have the reduced jpegs it's easy enough to reimport into preview and save as a pdf.¬†
Check out the attached image. I think this might come in handy although, I'm already really used to capitalizing things, so I don't know how well it's going to work out for me. Anyway, look at my snazzy list. Now I can say Snow Leopard is Snappy!
I'm trying to fill out a downloaded application which is in pdf format.¬† I can type text onto the form in Preview, however, the text types as though it's right justified.¬† That is: when I type the text, the text appears to the left of the cursor.¬† To clarify, the cursor stays in the same place and the text moves to the left, for example, when I place the cursor to the right of "Name", the text I type in appears to the left of the cursor on top of the word "Name".¬† For fields such as Name and Date, I suppose I can just put the cursor far to the right and type my text, but this is an application that includes an essay portion.¬† Typing a paragraph with all of the text going to the left of the cursor isn't going to work very well.¬† Is there a way to change the way the text is added, so that it's added in a more normal way, like the way I'm typing this question, where the letters appear where the cursor is and the cursor moves to the right as you add more text?¬† ¬†
I have also tried doing this in Text Edit and Pages (I converted the pdf in Text Edit to rtf), but I wasn't able to fill out the document as needed.¬† In addition, importing the document to Pages and Text Edit, for some reason, only imported the first page of the document).¬† I am using OS 10.6.8
I have some pics that I want to put titles into/onto.I am putting together a poster.¬† The top of the poster has a picture.¬† I want to put some text on top of/into the pic.What is a SIMPLE and EASY TO USE app where I can open the pic and type in the text and do some formatting?¬†I do not want a 'template' app.¬† The one's in pages don't work for this project.I want it to be able to use the fonts I have.¬† A program that gives me limited fonts is NOT going to work.¬†MAC OSX 10.6.8
Having an issue where Preview is crashing at the end of a Save As (hangs briefly when the progress bar is full, then crashes) -- happens pretty consistently. Running 10.6.1 (on top of a fresh 10.6 install), but happened in 10.6 as well, though perhaps not as often. Have plenty of memory.
One snippet of the crash report: Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000010 Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread I have a vague feeling that the issue might not be in Preview, per se, but in the OS.
I have a PDF that I scanned in myself and the first time I printed it it printed just the way it was supposed to. The next time I opened up the file in preview it looked normal on my screen but when I went to print it the output in the printer had the colors inverted. I have tried printing from preview and adobe acrobat and it printed the same the blacks came out white and the whites came out black. So I tried printing it from a windows computer and the file printed as it should, the colors were normal not inverted.
