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-]).

 
 

Adobe Releases Illustrator 10

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe Releases Illustrator 10 -- Adobe is now shipping Illustrator 10, the first of its graphics applications to add Mac OS X compatibility. The new version adds several features for producing Web content, including the capability to slice vector images, enhanced Macromedia Flash support, and capabilities that take advantage of Adobe's Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format. Other improvements include liquefy tools for warping images, symbol tools for managing repeated elements, a Magic Wand tool for selecting similar objects, and a host of interoperability options for using Illustrator with other Adobe applications. Illustrator 10 requires a PowerPC G3 or G4-based Macintosh running Mac OS 9.1 or later (including Mac OS X 10.1) and 128 MB of RAM. The program costs $400, with $150 and $250 upgrades available for owners of previous versions of Illustrator or competing products, respectively. In Adobe's announcement, President and CEO Bruce Chizen said that the rest of the company's titles would be released for Mac OS X within the next six months. [JLC]
