It does something (in Leopard at least) because the image border highlights, but I can't tell what...<br><br>Just curious. I searched the Help and (more usefully) shook an 8-ball.<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
Cool, you're right!<br><br>I would have thought it might have to do with contextual menus, as that what's the control key does with other applications, but contextual menus don't seem to work in preview, not even with a two-button mouse...<br><br><br>My Wii: 5721 8516 7937 9434 (PM me if you Wii)
It only does it when the image isn't zoomed. I don't know if it does anything beyond highlighting the border, though.<br><br>- padmavyuha<br><br>[color:purple]A lopsided man runs best along the little side-hills of success<br>- Frank Moore Colby</font color=purple>

It does not happen in Slideshow mode, or with PDFs. It's unaffected by window background color or image colors. It seems unaffected by choosing a different tool. You can't grab the border, and it doesn't seem to modify keystrokes that I can tell. I even tried an animated GIF. (Can you still play those somehow in Preview?)<br><br>The only thing I can think is that it shows the image bounds for images with a transparent background. If you have the window sized larger than the image, you might wonder about that I suppose. (But if your window background is black, you won't see the black highlight.)<br><br><br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
