Version 5.0 improves drag and drop performance

Monkeybread has announced Combine PDFs 5.0, updating its PDF merge/split software for the Mac. Combine PDFs allows users to merge PDF files and images into a single PDF file. Using drag and drop, several PDF files can be dropped on the program icon. A window appears allowing the user to change the order in which the files are joined. Users can split a PDF file or create a new PDF file with interleaved pages from two different PDF files. Combine PDFs uses simple, 40-bit encrypted passwords for their PDF files. With the password applied, users can choose whether anyone can view the PDF directly or even print or copy content. Combine PDFs also features stronger, 128-bit encryption as an option.

Version 5.0 adds support for Quartz filters, allowing users to apply effects to content while writing the PDF file. The application offers a preview panel that shows how the selected page looks with a particular filter applied. Drag and drop support is improved and text overlays have been added. Version 5.0 also features fullscreen previews.

Combine PDFs 5.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4 and works with Snow Leopard, with Mac OS X 10.5 required for Quartz filters. Single licenses are $30, a family license for up to five users is $70 and a company license for up to 20 users is $200.
