Review: SmileOnMyMac's PDFpen 4.5

updated 09:05 am EDT, Thu October 15, 2009

PDF editor put to scrutiny

MacNN has reviewed the latest edition of PDFpen, an editor that serves as an alternative to more expensive tools from the likes of Adobe. The software provides mostly basic functions, such as text insertion, notes and signatures, and various forms of image manipulation including line illustrations. Pages can also be reorganized as needed before printing.

New to PDFpen 4.5 are several features, such as a redesigned layout, highlighting, and OCR text recognition. The software may thus be closer to a full-fledged PDF editing package, the review concludes, and more worthy of its price. Version 4.5 is $50 new, or $25 as an upgrade from some earlier editions.

    Under "Bad" in your review, double-clicking the "Text/Markup/Select" tool you desire keeps it selected without having to re-click on it.

    I'm still learning my way around this app, but it is really awesome with the new HP scan drivers in Snow Leopard. I'm pretty sure the things that seem not to work are a matter of my having yet to learn the little tricks like the double-click I mention above.
