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-]).

 
 

TidBITS Mailing List

Send Article to a Friend

Wow! Internet users responded so enthusiastically that the volume temporarily swamped the mailer at Simon Fraser University. (Those of you who cannot get to the Internet might consider asking for an Internet gateway, on America Online and GEnie, for instance.) We are still working on ironing out all the quirks (sorry about those multiple mailfiles some of you received), so please bear with us. A couple of people have commented that there is no automatic way to sign-off the list. We're working on that too, but for the moment, just send email to tidbits-admin@sfu.ca telling us that you want to be removed from the list. We'll announce the automatic sign-off procedure when we have set it up.

Also, there have been a few problems with a few subscriptions because the SFU mailer has been unable to return mail for one reason or another. We're working on it, but if you sent in a subscription request that didn't bounce back to you and you don't receive confirmation or an issue, send mail to the administrative address or to me and we'll try to work it out.

Once again, if you want to subscribe to the list and have TidBITS sent to you each week, just send email to:

tidbits-subscription@sfu.ca

and you'll be added to the list. Thanks for the enthusiasm - the list received over 500 subscriptions in the first week!
