PDFpen and PDFpenPro 6.0.4

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Smile has updated PDFpen [1] and PDFpenPro [2] to version 6.0.4 with a smattering of targeted fixes for problems related to the way the PDF manipulation software handles opening, editing, and saving files. The update now treats PDF documents created via Print to PDF as new untitled documents, fixes an issue with redacting PDFs printed from Chrome, and sorts out several problems that prevented the opening of specific classes of PDF. It also squashes a bug that displayed pages as blank due to unusual coordinates, improves highlighting in documents with irregular word spacing, and fixes a problem with selection on the last line of multi-line text fields from Correct Text. As of this writing, neither PDFpen [3] nor PDFpenPro [4] has been updated to version 6.0.4 in the Mac App Store. To get the most out of PDFpen 6, be sure to check out the newly released “Take Control of PDFpen 6 [5]” by our own Michael Cohen. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members [6], free update from version 6.0, 50/50.8 MB)
