Smile has updated PDFpen and PDFpenPro to version 5.9.5, a small maintenance release for the PDF-manipulation programs that should provide relief from a few glitches. The release improves its handling of the current zoom level when entering Full Screen mode, avoids a potential crash during internal notification, fixes a rare problem of following page links, and fixes sidebar initialization on window restoration at launch. For full documentation, see Michael Cohen’s “Take Control of PDFpen 5.” ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 47.5/48.5 MB)
