Smile (www.smilesoftware.com) has announced PDFpen 6.0.5, the latest version of its all-purpose PDF editing tool. The update improves opening, printing, performance, and AppleScript. The update also includes adjustments and fixes in preparation for Mavericks.
The changes in PDFpen 6.0.5 have also been made in PDFpenPro 6.0.5, the pro version that can also convert websites into PDFs, create fillable PDF forms, automatically create form fields in non-interactive PDF forms, construct document table of contents, and set document permission settings that restrict saving, printing, and copying.
PDFpen 6.0.5 works with PDFpen for iPad and PDFpen for iPhone, allowing editing across devices when used with iCloud or Dropbox storage. Users who wish to use iCloud must purchase PDFpen 6.0.4 from the Mac App Store. (Apple restricts iCloud access to applications purchased via the Mac App Store.)
PDFpen retails for US$59.95, and PDFpenPro for $99.95. Family Pack licenses, which cover up to five computers in one household, are $74.95 for PDFpen and $119.95 for PDFpenPro. Office Pack licenses, which cover up to five users in an office, are $179.95 for PDFpen and $279.95 for PDFpenPro.
Upgrades from earlier versions of either application are $30 -- and free to users who purchased on or after Oct. 15, 2012. Upgrades from previous versions of PDFpen to PDFpenPro 6.0 are $40.
PDFpen and PDFpenPro require Mac OS X 10.7 or later. Demo versions are available at http://www.smilesoftware.com/PDFpen/download.html . Full versions of PDFpen and PDFpenPro are also available for purchase on Apple's Mac App Store. iCloud storage requires the Mac App Store version.
