Smile has released version 7.2 of PDFpen and PDFpenPro with a new Editing preference that makes the apps switch automatically between the Edit and Select Text tools. The PDF editing apps also receive a new cloud annotation tool, add Edit Note and Delete Note contextual menu commands, fix an issue with document links in New from HTML generation, add icons to the sidebar’s annotation list for easier identification, wrap text for improved readability, and add a case-sensitive search option. PDFpen also gets a read-only Document Permissions window (editing document permissions is still only available in PDFpenPro). ($74.95/$124.95 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free updates, 52.5/53.2 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.
