Giving the people what they want, Smile has updated both PDFpen and PDFpenPro to version 5.8.1 to add an oft-requested viewing option. With the new Zoom to Width feature, you can zoom to fill the available width of your screen, as well as set Screen Width as your default view in the app’s preferences. The release also improves accuracy of OCR and text selection and blends in some additional (though unspecified) enhancements and minor fixes.

It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.
