In this chapter, we’re going to focus on Preview’s prime directive: viewing PDF documents. We start by making sure you’re using the best view for your needs, and then look at the features for Navigating Your PDFs that make it easier to move around.

Sometimes a PDF is better than a physical document because you can find specific text within it, and we cover that in Searching within a PDF. For those who want to look more closely, we discuss Examining PDF Metadata, and we close with a discussion of Copying Text and Images.
