10.4: View selection dimensions in Preview
Authored by: phfdehaan on Jan 08, '07 10:21:35AM

On a .png
Pressing Option does do dimensions (x,y in pixels). Not in a .pdf.
Option-shift does a rectangle selection. Not in a .pdf
Dragging the selection-box around just plain works, talking pictures.
And then there's the stuff you can choose in the "Tools menu".
Looking at the Preview Help, it came to mind that it would be a good idea to actually read it... ;-)

Minor correction: Option-shift dragging creates a *square* selection box.
