This one is for the Mac users out there. Anyone who has used Mac OSX, whether they know it or not, has probably used Preview (or as Mac-heads call it, Preview.app) at some point. Any time you double click on an image or PDF, it is probably Preview that is starting up to view it.
What a lot of people don’t know is that Preview has some basic document editing capabilities. I made this quick video to run through them:
One thing I forgot to mention when creating the video is that you can use Preview to annotate documents as well. To do this:
- Go to Tools -> Annotate -> Add Note
- Place the annotation where you want it to go
- In the box, type your message
To summarize, Preview.app can:
- Re-order pages
- Delete pages
- Insert pages
- View one or two pages at a time, alone or continuously
- Go to full-screen mode
- View an index sheet of all pages
- Add notes to annotate a document
