    Hi there,
    I recently updated my OS X 10.8 to 10.9 and in the process lost my old Preview.app (5.5.2), that i got from here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1412516
    I really need this "old" Preview.app because I simply can't work with the new way the notes and annotations are displayed. I need them to be next to the same page, and I simply couldn't find that option on 6.0 or 7.0, which only provide the note-list.
    Now I was wondering if there was a way to get the old 5.5.2 Preview.app working on Mavericks e.g. by "tinkering the .plist" (I have no idea how to do this).
    I hope that some of you might be able to help me.
    RGDS,

    p.s. I already tried several PDF-Viewer-Programs, and Skim comes closest, but is still too unhandy for daily use.

    No, there is no way to get the old version of Preview to run on Mavericks. The .plist would have no effect on this.
