    Where is Preview info? I can't find anywhere to be able to select 32 bit. I just keep getting a blank screen with no image but there is one in the sidebar and for the icon on the desktop.
    What is going on?

    Same thing happened to me. It would also create white blocks in parts of the picture, changing or disappearing when I scrolled through images. 32-bit mode did not work for me. However, on Mac Fixit someone said validating your fonts in fontbook and then deleting the rogues fixed it for him. I did this and found four "Warning" fonts. Deleted them and it started working again. Now it works intermittently. This problem is NOT solved as far as I'm concerned.

    I went to my fontbook and saw a bunch of duplicates and resolved all the duplicates.
    There are two I can't resolve, Times and Courier both are used a lot, so I went to validate then and yes they had errors but I did not want to remove them for fear of removing the whole Courier or Times font completely.

    Yeah, not solved.

    I was having the same problem. I switched to 32 bit and it did not fix it. I called applecare and they suggested resetting the PRAM (turn the machine off. Hold down P R Option & Command. Listen for 3 restart chimes and letgo)

    Problem solved.

    I Have the same problem, but only when parallels desktop 5.0 is running. When I shut it off it works fine. I am running snow leopard. Don't know if I am running 32 bit preview app, will check

    I noticed that the problem no longer exists after upgrading the OS to 10.6.2. Preview now performs properly

    I can't get open jpegs in Preview.
    A MAC Genius suggested rebuilding the operating system of my MAC to correct this
    issue with Preview.
    Has anyone else gone to this extreme?

    Thanks for your help

    I have the same problem with Preview, it doesn't show the image files.
    How can I open the Preview app in 32 bit?
