    Can anyone out there with Lion provide a demo/screenshots of the Preview app (the one that displays PDFs, images, etc), I am curious to see how it works.

    There are many video's on YouTube already. I haven't seen them, but Im sure one will demo the Preview app.

    Strangely, Preview can't play animated GIFs but Quick Look can.

    I know in Snow Leopard, GIFs couldn't be played in Preview, but could they in Quicklook?

    Can anyone with Lion installed check and see if Preview (and other OS X PDF rendering) still has the issue with some fonts in PDF's not displaying the letter "A"?

    Nice to see the Annotate bar in the top rather than the bottom :D

    Can anyone please check if you can view all images in a folder with the Preview app by opening one image. For example, double-click on a image, Preview opens up, then use the arrow keys on your keyboard or mouse to see the rest of the images in that folder.

    Current behavior now is to select all or drag all to preview to see all images.

    Thanks.

    Yep, such a stupid behavior. Lets hope they have finally fixed that!

    Well, hopefully not. I really like that behavior. It makes total sense. :)

    Huh, it really does not make sense.. Why shouldn't you be able to easily view the rest of the images in the folder? And why would you like this (gimped) behavior as it is now?

    I want to browse through exactly the pictures I've selected. Makes sense to me.

    Err OK that's still possible, but if YOU select JUST 1 picture, you don't have to use the prev / next buttons or whatever might change in lion if they were smart.

    Actually no. That would make it totally inconsistent and wouldn't be a smart step at all. The buttons are for switching between open files or their individual pages.

    It doesn't necessarily need to be a fix. I'm sure some people like it the way it is. It needs to be an option for the people that don't like it that way, like me and wesleyh.
