    I find it extremely irritating to keep having to resize every Preview window that I open. I'd rather it always remained a specific size. I've been searching for a while for a solution, but seems no one has found one yet.

    I use Preview a lot for viewing photos and PDF's. Others suggest using Adobe's PDF viewer, but I like Preview because it is very light and responsive.

    Anyone come close to a solution for getting Preview to remain a constant window size?

    Hi!

    For viewing PDF files I suggest Skim. Light, fast and - IMHO - superior in terms of PDF reading/annotating/etc. to Preview.

    Hope this was helpful.

    Cheers - I downloaded Skim and I've now made that my number 1 for PDF's! It's pretty cool. And it remembers window sizes!

    Only glitch I'm having is that when I want to zoom in, I have to press:
    CMD SHIFT + as opposed to CMD + because by default on laptop keyboards the += button = is the primary key.

    Is there any way to reverse that in this program so I can zoom in without having to press the shift key?

    Wow,

    talk about timing. Todays tutorial over at Mac Kindergarten is exactly what you need.
    Note for the future: At Mac Kindergarten, you can request tutorials / ask questions such as this, if you think it may be interesting for other users, too.
