Hi, I've got the same problem here.
I use Preview to highlight important parts during lessons and then study them at home and I had no problem before with Snow Leopard.
Now with 10.7 the more I highlight a document, the more it disappears in the first pages.
It's a really annoying issue and I can't solve it if I copy the pdf to a computer with snow leopard.
Hope this will be solved soon
Thanks. Any way to fix this?
As a side note, with regard to Lion's Preview app, I have also been finding that when ever I annotate a PDF using grey text that text becomes invisible after one or more times reopening that document. That text is still there, but it's either being turned white or clear, because I am unable to see it on a white page. This doesn't happen when I use other colors. So, far all I've tried using are black, grey, blue and red -- and of those, I'm only having a problem with grey.
I will be going to the Genius Bar today. If I hear anything I'll be sure to post it.
Tonight I went to the Genius Bar. There seems to be two options:
(1) Do as the genius did tonight:
- Reset the home folder's ACL (Access Control List.) (He said to Google this to learn exactly how to do this.)
- Repair the disk permissions
- Delete the Preview preference file. It's a "plist" file located in user/library/preferences
If that doesn't work, then:
(2) Re-install Lion.
I tried Preview with the fixes and most of my problems seemed to be fixed. Those being the colors of the highlighted text and notes haven't dimmed after a number of quits and restarts of Preview. However, the grey text that I originally included in my annotations became invisible again. They're still there, but you can't seem them. Although the text that I included using other colors (blue & red) continue to appear.
My feeling that this still might be an issue related to versions, but who knows.
