Smile has released version 6.2.1 of PDFpen and PDFpenPro, a maintenance update for the all-purpose PDF editing apps with added support for the new form of AES-256 encryption that has been implemented in Adobe Acrobat X and later. Version 6.2.1 also adds support for using Command-+ (plus) and Command-- (minus) for zooming, squashes a bug that caused text selection to fail in some documents, improves performance with multi-page image documents, adds an Open Scripts Folder menu item, and fixes a problem that prevented link annotations from being saved properly. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, 52.6/53.3 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit
If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)
