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 Corrections in TidBITS 827

Two Corrections in TidBITS 827 -- Alert readers pointed out two corrections in last week's issue. In Mark Anbinder's article "MacBook Pro Line Adds 17-inch Size," the specification for the new laptop's SuperDrive should be 8x speed, not 4x (which Mark correctly wrote in his ExtraBITS post on the day the computer was announced, but got mangled when editing the issue).

And in "Tools We Use: Backdrop," I incorrectly wrote that one could take a screenshot in Mac OS X using the keyboard combinations Command-3 or Command-4. Since I (along with the rest of the staff) use Snapz Pro X to capture screenshots, I rarely use the Mac OS X shortcuts, which are Command-Shift-3 and Command-Shift-4. Thanks for keeping us (me) on our (my) toes! [JLC]
