A Mac “Book”

Mac 'Book'

So while viewing a PDF in Preview, and messing around with keyboard shortcuts. This led me to find out that you could change the orientation very easily in Preview. So I thought, can I use my Macbook as a book? And the answer is yes. The result is so simple and stupid, it may be sheer genius.

Here are the instructions on how to do it.

In the Preview app do the following:

  1. Command L to change the orientation
  2. Command SHIFT F to display fullscreen
  3. Press "fill screen" icon
  4. Use the Left and Right arrow keys to go back and forth in the document
  5. Rotate Macbook in hands 90 degrees, like a book, and enjoy! (Note: Be careful! Do not drop your expensive book!)
