New in 5.2.3 was AppleScript support for creating PDFs from HTML (in the Pro edition only), as well as a fix for an issue with performing Correct Text after saving a document. The subsequent 5.2.4 release corrected scripting functionality unintentionally broken with 5.2.3. ($59.95/$99.95 new, free update, 41 MB)

Comments about PDFpen and PDFpenPro 5.2.4

This a great application even though Preview has improved, permitting you to rearrange the pages in a PDF and even access your scanner. It is faster and more agile than Adobe's Acrobat.
