Send Article to a Friend

Preparing for the upcoming release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Smile has updated PDFpen and PDFpenPro to version 6.0.5 to fix OCR functionality, the scribble tool, and the Populate Script menu on Appleā€™s next-generation operating system. The updates also add several printing improvements, including an added option to print selected pages from the sidebar; support for printing multiple, non-contiguous selections of pages; and enhanced printing via AppleScript. Other changes include an added dictionary lookup using a three-finger tap (on 10.8 Mountain Lion and later), and improved performance with encrypted PDFs and PDFs containing inline images. The Mac App Store versions of PDFpen and PDFpenPro also add the standard OS X iCloud file open dialog. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update from version 6.0, 50.0/50.8 MB)
