PDFpen and PDFpenPro 6.1.3

Smile has updated its PDFpen and PDFpenPro all-purpose PDF editing apps to version 6.1.3 with the addition of new Redaction toolbar buttons (Block Selection, Erase Selection), which you can add via View > Customize Toolbar. Both editions also receive support for clickable links from telephone numbers (as well as support for creating your own tel: links), modify the Save command to ensure that changes can’t be made to a locked document, fix a bug that caused rotation to display pages outside of the canvas, and no longer prompt for OCR when in viewing mode. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, 52.5/53.3 MB, release notes)
