I am running Preview 9 now,
where is this presentation.xml file ?

In fact I have no real opposition to the new shortcuts, it is just a 
matter of time
to change the habit.
The major change is more that there is a special mode for selection.

I am against customization, you cannot work with somebody else.

This is ok. I should have tried.

Another thing, I had experienced a strange behavior of scissors on circle.
Draw a circle
Use scissors to cut it
Move both objects in different places
Use scissors again to cut the two objects
(or only the already cutted but you have some diffculty to figure which 
it is)

You should obtain (or at least I do) during the cut phase the point do 
not move on the circle
(but on its previous location) and when cutted you get a strange object.
