Smile has released version 13.1 of PDFpen and PDFpenPro with faster document scrolling and drawing on larger PDF documents. Additional improvements to the recently upgraded PDF editing apps include default sidebar modes such as Attachments and Form Fields (providing more options to customize PDFpen’s views), an updated OCR engine with support for M1-based Macs, and offline export capability to Microsoft PowerPoint and PDF Archive (PDF/A-1b) formats. The latter format provides an added layer of security for confidential company and client information or court filings.
