Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview

If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.

The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

 
 

Instacast 1.0.2

Send Article to a Friend

Vemedio has released Instacast 1.0.2 with an AirPlay adjustment for the forthcoming OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Now when you stream audio from the podcasting app, AirPlay doesn’t need to switch the system audio output device (under Mavericks Beta 3 or higher). The update also adds support for viewing podcast feeds, episode images, and chapters using Quick Look, as well as support for chapter links and images in MP3 ID3v2 tags. It also ensures the system won’t go to sleep during download, adds the capability to pause playback before system sleep, fixes localization issues and crashes, and improves play button behavior. ($19.99 new, free update, 5.7 MB, release notes)
