SmileOnMyMac has released the next major upgrade to its PDF editing tool for Mac OS X. PDFpen 4.0 features user interface refinements, such as a new document sidebar for viewing thumbnails, an updated Properties window, and greater toolbar controls. Basic OCR (Optical Character Recognition) has also been added, which allows users to change scanned text documents from picture files into text files for editing. Other new features include importing of Word documents, printing of notes and comments, additional mark-up options, and file compatibility upgrades.

PDFpenPro has received all of PDFpen's new features, and additionally lets users create and edit Table of Contents pages, along with cross-platform fillable PDF forms.
