Smile has released version 6.3.1 of PDFpen and PDFpenPro, a small maintenance release to the company’s all-purpose PDF editing apps that fixes the frustration of a few bugs. The update works around a performance issue caused by a bug in OS X 10.9 Mavericks, fixes a crash that occurred when hot-plugging a scanner, avoids potential crashes with the scanning window, and improves the appearance of the editing bar when running the OS X Yosemite developer preview. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free updates, 52.0/52.8 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
Add Slides to Pear Note from Other Applications
If you have some slides in any application, and you'd like to add them to a Pear Note document, there's no need to save them out and then import them into Pear Note. Instead, you can send them directly to Pear Note through a PDF service. For instance, if you had slides in Keynote, just:
- Select Print within Keynote.
- Click the PDF button.
- Select Send PDF to Pear Note.
This can also be used to import other document types into Pear Note to take notes on them as well.
