Position and align objects in Pages on Mac
The Colour and the Shape — The Preview annotation tool we use most often is Shapes, which makes it easy, for instance, to call out a particular interface element in a screenshot. Whether using the menu or toolbar, choose a shape to insert it into your document or image. It appears in the center of your document; to insert a new shape at a particular spot, click Shapes on the Markup Toolbar, and then drag the desired shape to the spot you want.
For lines and arrows, the Shift key constrains the line to degree angles. You can, of course, move the shape, by placing your cursor on the shape anywhere other than on a drag handle — when your cursor becomes a hand, click and drag to move the shape. Or just click once to select the shape, after which you can use the arrow keys to nudge it more precisely.
As is often the case, if you need more than one shape of the same type, you can either use copy and paste, or simply hold down Option and drag the shape, as if to move it, to create an exact duplicate.
The line, polygon, and star offer additional possibilities. When first inserted, lines are straight, but a green drag handle in the middle of the line lets you make it into a smoothly curved line. By default, inserting a polygon adds a hexagon to your document. Move that handle counter-clockwise to remove sides, down to three, or clockwise to add sides, up to The star shape works similarly, except it has two green handles, one that adds or remove points and another you can use to change the length of the points.
Select the shape, put your thumb and forefinger on the trackpad, and twist. Make sure you have a shape selected first, because otherwise Preview rotates the entire image in degree increments. There are a few ways to use these tools in constructive ways other than inserting pretty shapes. A technique we use frequently at TidBITS and Take Control is to place a red oval or rectangle with no fill around interface elements we want to draw attention to.
Arrows can also be useful for pointing out specific details. Create a rectangle with a black stroke and a black fill and drag it over a portion of a document you wish to obscure.
When you print the document, the black rectangle will cover the sensitive material. Josh once had a job that involved doing this for thousands of documents, albeit not with Preview. With PDFs, annotations remain unique, editable objects, even after you save, close, and re-open a document.
Once you close an edited image, all your annotations are flattened into the underlying bitmap of the image and can no longer be selected and manipulated individually. One final tip here. However, you can Shift-click multiple objects to select them simultaneously for moving or deleting all at once. Who Was That Masked Loupe? Play with the mask shape on a throwaway image so you can get a sense of how you might use it.
Loupe inserts an onscreen magnifying glass, which is a helpful way to highlight small details, but it also distorts the image, which can be confusing to the viewer. You change the size of the loupe with the blue drag handle and adjust the zoom level with the green drag handle. Select it, and click and drag to draw the desired shape. What Preview does next depends on what you drew.
If Preview thinks you were trying to draw a square, for instance, it changes your drawing to be a proper square shape. After drawing a shape, look closely at the upper left of the window, where a small popover appears with your original and a choice of possible replacement shapes. Click the one you want, but be aware that you get only one shot, since the popover vanishes forever after you choose, or if you deselect the shape.
If you happen to have a trackpad equipped with Force Touch, note that the Sketch tool is pressure-sensitive, so you can press more firmly to darken the line as you draw.
The Sketch tool can be useful in ways you might not expect. Bring up the area in satellite view in Google Maps, take a screenshot, and then use the Sketch tool to draw a freehand line indicating where to go. Texting While Annotating — Shapes are great, but what about when you want to add a description to an annotation or complete a PDF form that lacks interactive form fields?
For that, you can insert text. And, not surprisingly, Preview offers quite a few ways to do so. You can move and resize this text box just as you would a shape, although it can be a little fussy, since clicking inside the text box edits the text instead of grabbing the box. Try these techniques to make moving it easier. First, click anywhere else to deselect the text box, hover over the deselected text box until you see the hand cursor, and then click and, without letting up, drag.
Second, if the text box is already selected, hover over the outlined edge to get the hand cursor and drag. You can also use the Shape Style, Border Color, and Fill Color menus to further customize the look of the text box, just as you can with shapes.
Border Color lets you add a border to the text box and give it a color, Shape Style offers stroke thickness and style choices, and Fill Color adds a background color to the text. They work just like regular shapes, with the addition of two green drag handles for controlling the tip and base of the arrow.
For those two, the text appears off to one end of the line; for the rest, the text shows up inside the shape. Preview adds a small yellow square to the center of the current page, popping out a larger yellow rectangle into which you can type text. Enter as much text as you want; the yellow rectangle expands to hold it.
Click anywhere outside the yellow rectangle to close it, leaving just the little yellow square. Option-drag it to make a copy; this could be helpful if you need the same comment applied to multiple spots on the page. Use Copy and Paste to put it on another page. Cut works too, if you created the note on the wrong page. Plus, you can add text to the notes in the sidebar, or edit them there, which is often easier than opening and closing the editing rectangle.
You have to print it, sign it, and then scan it back into the computer so you can email it back or, horrors, fax it. It enables you to create one or more signatures, and then easily add them to images and PDFs. To create a signature with a trackpad, click the Sign button in the Markup Toolbar and choose Create Signature.
Click the Click Here to Begin button and write out your signature on the trackpad with your finger — if you have a capacitive stylus for an iPad not an Apple Pencil , it will likely work better. However, using a webcam like the FaceTime camera built into most Macs is arguably the better way to make a signature.
Sign your name on a blank, white piece of paper, preferably with a black marker. Choose Create Signature and click the Camera button. Inside the popover, a window appears displaying what your camera sees. Hold your paper signature up to the camera, making sure to get it close and lined up with the blue line. When Preview detects the signature, it displays the digital version in the camera window.
Once created, your signature is easy to insert into an image or PDF. Choose it to insert it into the document, where you can move and resize it like any other shape.
Is there a smart way to move text annotations assuming you can't always select the right location before selecting annotation? What I do now seems tedious: first create it, edit the text, deselect, then chose the move tool somewhat confusingly labeled selection , and then finally move it.
Would be great if there were a modifier key to be able to move it directly after editing the text, but so far I can't find anything. The main thing you're doing that seems unnecessary is selecting the move tool.
Here are the steps I'd take:. Can it be selected and removed by another like some of the added objects? If I were to do a print to PDF operation on the edited Preview PDF, does that lock in some of the objects into the document any more securly than just saving?
That's a great question, and I just tested. Preview does the right thing, and merges the signature into the bitmap of the page, so it can't be selected like a note and copied out. However, nothing stops someone from taking a screenshot of the signature. But that's no different than someone scanning or photographing a paper document to get your signature, so I don't see that as much of a security risk.
I was mostly concerned that someone would be able to just select and delete or move the signature object with little effort. One small addition — you can drag items out of the Shapes popover, which saves you a bit of mousing. Excellent piece. The shapes couldn't be moved in the screen shot, could they?
Yes, since the screenshot would be nothing but an image of the document, with no electronic text, it would not contain any of the redacted information.
But it would also be a bigger file and not have any of the properties of a PDF which are desirable. Curtis is absolutely right. If redacting is something you need to do for real, get PDFpen. It's cheap and effective. An excellent point we forgot to mention, but will add in.
It's absolutely true—once you've selected a shape, you can use the arrow keys to move it around, which is often more precise than using a pointing device.
Great series! Would save me cutting and pasting all the individual pieces together. I have some questions and observations on that if so. Hmm, that's a good question. As far as I'm aware, Preview can only fill in PDF forms, and I'm not sure that's a topic that would have fit anywhere so far, or in the articles coming up. We'll ponder. Forms completed in Preview, when opened in Acrobat Reader, often display blank fields.
I've created forms in Acrobat, filled them in with Preview, only to have my Windows friends view an empty form when viewed in Acrobat or Reader. I haven't done a lot of investigation or experimentation on this to find conditions or patterns, but Preview is too unreliable for use in filling forms, I've found. In particular, it cannot do field arithmetic, which can be quite a hindrance when creating and using forms.
Though annotations and markup in Preview are pretty good, as you've described, it seems to fail pretty hard in dealing with forms.

Note: If an object is placed inline with text, you can reposition it only by dragging or cutting and pasting it to a new location in the text. To move an inline object outside the text flow, see Move an inline object to the page. Click an object to select it or select multiple objects. Tip: You can select multiple objects , then move them at the same time. If two or more objects are selected, the objects align to the object most in the direction you selected. You can position objects so there is equal spacing between them on a horizontal or vertical axis, or on both axes.

Сьюзан было запротестовала, но Стратмор не дал ей говорить. - Вы меня не знаете, молодой человек. Я рисковал всю свою жизнь. Хотите меня испытать. Что ж, попробуйте! - Он начал нажимать кнопки мобильника. - Ты меня недооценил, сынок. Никто позволивший себе угрожать жизни моего сотрудника не выйдет отсюда.
Хейл попытался пошевелить руками, но понял, что накрепко связан.
Беккер почти вслепую приближался к двери. - Подожди! - крикнул. - Подожди.
Он многое знал об искусстве ведения переговоров: тот, кто обладает властью, должен спокойно сидеть и не вскакивать с места. Он надеялся, что она сядет. Но она этого не сделала.
Сьюзан едва могла говорить. - Никакой Цифровой крепости не существует, - еле слышно пробормотала она под завывание сирены и, обессилев, склонилась над своим компьютером. Танкадо использовал наживку для дурачков… и АНБ ее проглотило. Сверху раздался душераздирающий крик Стратмора.
Еще немного - и купол шифровалки превратится в огненный ад. Рассудок говорил ей, что надо бежать, но Дэвид мертвой тяжестью не давал ей сдвинуться с места. Ей казалось, что она слышит его голос, зовущий ее, заставляющий спасаться бегством, но куда ей бежать.
ГЛАВА 42 Вернувшись в комнату, Сьюзан, не находя себе места, нервно ходила из угла в угол, терзаясь мыслью о том, что так и не выбрала момент, чтобы разоблачить Хейла. А тот спокойно сидел за своим терминалом. - Стресс - это убийца, Сью.
Халохот прокручивал в голове дальнейшие события. Все было очень просто: подойдя к жертве вплотную, нужно низко держать револьвер, чтобы никто не заметил, сделать два выстрела в спину, Беккер начнет падать, Халохот подхватит его и оттащит к скамье, как друга, которому вдруг стало плохо. Затем он быстро побежит в заднюю часть собора, словно бы за помощью, и в возникшей неразберихе исчезнет прежде, чем люди поймут, что произошло. Пять человек.
Si. Punqui. - Панк. - Да, панк, - сказала Росио на плохом английском и тотчас снова перешла на испанский. - Mucha joyeria.
Увы, Мидж платили за то, чтобы она задавала вопросы, и Бринкерхофф опасался, что именно с этой целью она отправится прямо в шифровалку. Пора готовить резюме, подумал Бринкерхофф, открывая дверь. - Чед! - рявкнул у него за спиной Фонтейн.
