    I've just updated to PB2 from PB1. When I open a PDF file, Preview.app stucks with beachball right after opening the file, or after scrolling a little bit.

    The more important problem is navigation in the file does not work at all. Neither the table of contents list nor the links in the file does nothing. In Console, I see the following crash message:

    Code:

    Can anyone reproduce the same problems?

    The preview app has SO MANY bugs now. Almost useless. Nothing fixed in preview since first public beta 1 and it has just gotten worse.

    But safari now works again :)

    Preview does not crash for me, but it does have some issues (PB2).

    Touch pad scrolling does not work for the thumbnail list. I have to use the scroll bar. Jumping between pages by clicking on the thumbnail works.

    The Table of Contents view does NOT switch pages if set for Continuous Scroll. Have to use either Single Page or Two Pages then page changes work. Page mode also appears to be required for internal links.

    I can confirm that navigation does not work if the viewing mode is "continous scroll" as you suggest. For the other two modes, navigation works as expected.

    To clarify, Preview.app does not completely crash, i.e. not the main thread of it. However one of its threads crashes and dumps the log that I attached in my original post.

    I also wrote a small app which uses PDFView. Same problems happened in that app too. I think this indicates that the bugs are coming from the underlying PDFKit framework of MacOS X.

    FWIW, I submitted rdar://18097782 for the ToC issue.

    I was unable to use Preview in Beta 2 also. Beachball and hang.
