PDFpen and PDFpenPro 8.0.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Smile has issued version 8.0.1 of PDFpen [1] and PDFpenPro [2], the first maintenance release after the recent upgrade (see “PDFpen 8 Adds Attachments, Digital Signatures, and More [3],” 28 April 2016). The PDF editing apps now enable you to press Shift-Space to scroll up a page, improve signature field compatibility with Adobe products, fix a crash that was caused by displaying the choice widget, and make improvements to picking up old license codes for free update checking.

Upgrades for single-user licenses of PDFpen and PDFpenPro each cost $30 (those who purchased either PDFpen 7 or PDFpenPro 7 after 1 January 2016 are eligible for free upgrades). Both PDFpen [4] and PDFpenPro [5] are now available from the Mac App Store, but you can get version 8 of either edition from Smile and receive upgrade pricing. Just download the latest version of the app from the Smile Web site and launch it: the registration process recognizes the Mac App Store versions and applies the appropriate upgrade price. ($74.95/$124.95 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members [6], $30 upgrade, free update from version 8.0, 70.3/70.9 MB, release notes [7], 10.10+)
