View Full Version : Changes to Preview in ML?

Aug 9, 2012, 11:35 AM

Before upgrading, one feature of the Preview app that I used very regularly was the sidebar, which shows thumbnails of all the pages in list order. You could use this to move pages around, and even insert new pages into PDF files.

I haven't been able to get this kind of behavior to work in Mountain Lion. The Sidebar menu item is greyed out no matter what file I open. Am I missing something, is it just a problem with my installation, or was this feature removed? Any ideas?

Select View-->Thumbnails. That should open the Sidebar and activate the options in the View-->Sidebar submenu.

Thanks! Silly I didn't see this.

At the same time, I've noticed lots of cases like this, where things were moved around and I had to figure them out again. Very annoying.
