Mac OS Mountain Lion and Preview functions

I was pretty annoyed when I discovered that lots of useful things that one could do with Preview under Snow Leopard (OS 10.6.8) had been obliterated under Lion. Some have been restored under Mountain Lion, though less conveniently, and I have now found tedious workarounds for some others.

There was quite an outcry about this. It does seem to me that Apple is very arrogant about its software. I don't know how they could have left out these basic functions. They absolutely can't have done any research or testing with real life users. I wonder in fact if this is an indication that Apple is reaching its peak. Just thinking.

If you want to tell Apple where you think it's made a mistake, go here:

In my next post I'll explain how to do some of the things we used to do so easily with Preview.
