Weird behavior of Preview app
Posted by: freeradical

When I group select a large number of images, and double click on the selected group, Preview will often open up two, or occasionally three windows. When I close the multiple windows, and double click on the selection again, preview will open up one window,

Why does it do this?

groups of differing file types ?



OK, never mind, after trying nef/jpeg that's not it.

What does your preference under the General tab show? Mine says "Open groups of files in the same window"

I'm running Snow Leopard, Preview version 5.0.3 (504.1)

Sorry I don't have a fix, but maybe different setting choices will yield different results when opening groups of files.

I'm set the same way, and I'm also running SL.

Weird indeed. I was able to duplicate it. Selected 4 jpgs on my desktop and double-clicked. One window with 3 images, a second window with the fourth. Closed all windows and double-clicked selection again and all four images in one window. Quit Preview and made a new selection of four images (2 from original group, two other images) and same deal. 1st double-click resulted in two windows, close and re-double-click selection and got one window. Hmmm, perhaps a threading issue with images handled by a different thread opening in another window? (WAG?)

Running 10.8.4/Preview 6.0.1 with the Preview option of open groups of files in the same window selected.
