Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.

PDFpen and PDFpenPro 8.1

Smile has pushed out version 8.1 of PDFpen and PDFpenPro, which adds visible snap-to guides that help you more precisely place images, shapes, text boxes, and other objects. The PDF editing apps now display an email address for a self-signed certificate (instead of the issuer), retain size-to-fit font in appearance for form fields, resolve a hang when performing a Save As for forms with required fields, work around a drag-and-drop issue in the sidebar in macOS 10.12 Sierra, and avoid converting grayscale images to RGB after opening. ($74.95/$124.95 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, $30 upgrade, free update from version 8.0, 70.3/71 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
