Working on MacOs 10.11 Capitan Ok, so far
Skim is awesome. Yet, it doesn't work on OS X El Capitan at this moment. Shows only black screen for PDF previews, while thumbnails work fine.
Much smoother than Acrobat when page up and down.
I use it in my everyday. Excellent piece of software.
I found that every time I tap with 3 fingers a snapshot will appear but actually I just want to look up a world in dictionary. Can the snapshot function be turned off?
