    Best PDF editing software?

    I'm looking to purchase a license for a Mac application to view and edit PDF files. I don't want a subscription service, and I'm just looking for good editing all around, whether it's for an editable PDF file that's been created for user input or a "dumb" PDF file to annotate (like Preview.app...

    Preview STILL Does Not Show 100%-Scale Images Correctly??

    Apple has had Retina display Macs since... 2013??... and they STILL haven't fixed the Preview app's failure to show 100%-scaled images as 1 pixel per one pixel. It shows them blown up somewhat. Yes, I have checked the setting in Preview's preferences, and NO, it has no effect. It defeats the...

    iPhone Mail inbox preview shows text not in email.

    Been curious about this odd little quirk. When looking at my inbox in the mail app, each email has a short preview of its contents. But for certain emails the preview contains text that’s nowhere in the body of the email itself. It’s not totally random text, however, because it usually deals...

    QuickLook not showing text-like files

    Hi! Really annoying problem. I don't know when or why this started. But a few months ago I noticed the QL would take a lot of time loading to show me a preview something like a 2KB *.txt file. But now, it loads indefinitely. I said "text-like" files because everything else seems to work fine...

    Hey, guys. I have a "problem". Got the 5K iMac and I use a lot the preview feature (spacebar in medias). But the default size of preview's window is ridiculous big.

    Is it possible to enable preview in an older iBook Author?

    I downloaded the latest iBook Author for Mavericks. I have iBA on High Sierra but I hate it to work in it entirely, so I mostly work in Mavericks. A one problem is that the option to preview is greyed out and it requires the most up-to-date version. My question would be are there some...
