PDFpen and PDFpenPro 5.9.4

Smile has updated PDFpen and PDFpenPro to version 5.9.4, both of which reduce overall memory usage for improved performance. The PDF-manipulation programs gain improvements in OCR error handling, as well as opening documents that didn’t correctly adhere to PDF specifications. PDFpenPro also resolves a sandboxing issue when creating new PDFs from local HTML files. As of this writing, both PDFpen and PDFpenPro haven’t been updated to this latest version in the Mac App Store (they’re both still stuck on version 5.9.3). ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 47.5/48.5 MB)
