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-]).

Two Swedish programmers, Christian Holmen and Nicklas Ungman, originally developed BrushStrokes for Casady & Greene, from whom Claris acquired marketing rights for the Claris Clear Choice label, which publishes innovative software from independent developers.
