PDFClerk 2.8 ships
SintraWorks has released PDFClerk 2.8, an update to the PDF manipulation tool that enables users to place watermarks as well as other recurring patterns in PDF documents. The latest release features step and repeat layouts, a media library, and supports dropping text from other applications. PDF-Clerk can join multiple PDF documents together, rearrange the page order, add blank pages, delete individual pages, impose multiple pages onto a sheet of paper, and rotate pages on imposed sheets to ease the process of creating custom books and magazines. The software allows users to create prints for languages that read from right to left, and supports overlaying graphics as well as text boxes onto PDF documents. PDFClerk includes print crop, bleed, and registration mark functionality as well as color and grayscale bars. PDFClerk 2.8 is priced at $50, requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary.
