PDFpen and PDFpenPro 6.1

Send Article to a Friend

With the release of version 6.1 of PDFpen and PDFpenPro, you can put away your ink pad for good… at least when it comes to PDF-based business documents. The latest update to Smile’s all-purpose PDF editing apps adds a library of standard business stamps such as Confidential, Sign Here, and Approved, and it offers the capability ot add your own stamps to the library. You can find the new range of stamps by choosing Window > Library (Command-Y) and clicking the stamp icon in the Library palette.

Both updates also bring the capability to add pop-up notes to PDF annotations such as highlighting and drawing objects, add support for saving PDFs to Evernote Business notebooks, and enable the opening of PDF documents with missing or incorrect extensions. PDFpenPro 6.1 now lets you create form fields for an entire PDF document (in addition to per page), and adds a command to detect and create links from URLs automatically, as well as an option to display source URLs on pages when creating a PDF from a Web site. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update from version 6.0, 51.5/52.3 MB)
