Those who make comments on PDFs in Smile’s PDF-manipulation software PDFpen (or its big brother, PDFpenPro) will appreciate PDFpen 5.6, which adds a setting for the name associated with PDF notes and comments, and lets you make notes and comments anonymously as well. These options are controlled in a new Editing preference pane in PDFpen’s Preferences window. Also new is an option in the General preference pane to display documents at their actual printed size, regardless of your screen’s resolution. Other changes include improved selection accuracy and fixes for a number of rotation-related issues. ($59.95/$99.95, free update, 41.2 MB)
Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots
Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):
• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.
• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.
• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.
• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.
• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.
