PDFpen and PDFpenPro 6.0.5

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Preparing for the upcoming release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Smile has updated PDFpen [1] and PDFpenPro [2] 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 [3] and PDFpenPro [4] also add the standard OS X iCloud file open dialog. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members [5], free update from version 6.0, 50.0/50.8 MB)
