SmileOnMyMac Releases PDFpen 4.1

Posted March 3, 2009 at 2:20am by iClarified
SmileOnMyMac has released PDFpen 4.1, an update to its PDF editing software for Mac OS X. The update adds a continuous scrolling view that allows users to view and edit
multiple PDF pages at the same time. In the new view, images and annotations can be moved between pages via drag-and-drop. The continuous view option is available in both single-page and facing-page views.

"Many PDFpen customers prefer to view PDFs by scrolling through the pages, rather than paging up or down," said Philip Goward, SmileOnMyMac co-founder and PDFpen developer. "Now that we've made this viewing option available, those customers can use their PDF editing tool as their default PDF reader, instead of Preview or Adobe Reader."

AppleScript support for OCR (Optical Character Recognition) has also been added to this update, along with minor improvements and bug fixes.

All the changes in PDFpen 4.1 have also been made in PDFpenPro 4.1,
the Pro version that has the ability to create fillable PDF forms and
document Table of Contents, in addition to all the features of PDFpen.

PDFpen costs $49.95. PDFpenPro costs $99.95. Family Pack licenses,
which cover up to 5 computers in one household, are $74.95 for PDFpen
and $129.95 for PDFpenPro. Upgrades from earlier versions are $25.00,
and free to users who purchased after June 1, 2008. Upgrades from any
version of PDFpen to PDFpenPro 4.X are $50.
