Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

DealBITS Drawing: Win a Copy of PDFpen 4

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe Acrobat Pro is a pricey piece of software, and while it's essential for certain high-end PDF tasks, most people don't need to spend $449 when they could instead spend a tenth of that on a copy of SmileOnMyMac's PDFpen. If you need to move pages around in a PDF, delete pages, fill out PDF forms, or add signatures to a PDF, PDFpen is likely all you need. The just-released PDFpen 4 adds basic optical character recognition to scanned originals so you can edit the text, can import Microsoft Word documents, and offers additional markup options.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of three copies of PDFpen 4, each worth $49.95. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on PDFpen, so be sure to enter at the DealBITS page. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Remember too, that if someone you refer to this drawing wins, you'll receive the same prize as a reward for spreading the word.
