DealBITS Drawing: PDFpen 3.0
I do a lot of work with massaging PDF files these days, and while I can’t escape using Adobe’s Acrobat Professional for certain tasks, I find that I prefer SmileOnMyMac’s PDFpen for many activities, such as moving pages around when preparing print-on-demand versions of our Take Control ebooks, deleting pages to make Take Control samples, adding text to pages to make class copies, and so on. (For those who want to create PDF-based interactive forms, SmileOnMyMac offers PDFpenPro, which is otherwise identical, though nearly twice as expensive.) New features in PDFpen 3.0 include support for replacing text in original PDFs; moving, resizing, copying, and deleting images; copying and pasting rich text; and selecting and copying text across columns. If you work with PDF, it’s an absolutely worthwhile tool.
