Edit PDFs easily with PDFpenPro! Add text, images and signatures. Make changes, fix typos, resize images, fill out forms, and redact sensitive information. Use OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to digitize scanned documents.

PDFpenPro is for those who want to go beyond PDFpen to create interactive forms, add and edit tables of contents, and convert websites into PDFs!

New! PDFpenPro 6
New interface makes PDF editing faster and easier than ever, and it's optimized for retina displays! We've also added the ability to export PDFs to Microsoft Word. There's much more -- see the list of new features below.

PDFpenPro users also enjoy two additional new Pro features: edit document permissions (restrict saving, printing, editing, etc.) and automatically generate form fields in a non-interactive form.

• Make changes and mark up PDFs
With PDFpenPro, you can add text, images and signature to your PDFs. You can even correct text in the original PDF. Use PDFpenPro’s tools to highlight, underline, or strikethrough text. Add comments and notes to share with others.

Remove private information with the redaction feature. Select the text you want to omit, and redact it with a black box or a blank space--either way, the text is removed from the document. Remove a word, phrase or social security number throughout a document with search-and-redact or search-and-remove.

And now you can easily access your annotations! In PDFpenPro 6, filter annotations by type, and even print them out as a list.

• Paperless Workflow
Reduce the amount of paper in your office. Scan documents directly into PDFpenPro and then use PDFpenPro’s OCR (Optical Character Recognition) on the scanned text, so you can search, edit, and copy it.

No more printing! You can add your signature to a PDF contract and email it back. It's the end of the old routine of print first, then sign, then scan or fax.

Go mobile! Get PDFpen for iPad & iPhone on the iTunes App Store, and edit your PDFs seamlessly on Mac, iPad or iPhone, thanks to iCloud and Dropbox.

• Easy to Use
In PDFpenPro’s Library, you can store frequently-used images, signatures and text so they are always at your fingertips when you want to add them to a PDF. New in version 6: reorder your Library items via drag-and-drop!

Drag-and-drop thumbnails to rearrange pages or to combine pages from different PDFs. Deleting a page is as simple as selecting its thumbnail and pressing the Delete key.

This is a killer app! - I bought PDFPen Pro after a one-month trial of Acrobat… Smile's version seemed to do all I need, at a reasonable price. Since then, I've used it for internal documents and general office editing… but also to proof a 550-page book and serveral long-form product manuals. It's been fast, flexible, and relatively bullet-proof. I occasionally still open PDFs in Preview and Acrobat, just to check compatibility of some note or edit I'd added in PDFPen Pro… but Smile's version is my go-to software, and I keep it running whenever I've got my Mac turned on. I've also written their support a couple of times, to ask how for tricks that aren't in the help files. They've always been responsive, explaining how to do what I want or suggesting a workaround.

PDFpenPro 6.1.3 - Wow, I sure wish I could get this app to function like I've heard Katie Floyd and David Sparks rave about. I'm really battling with some basic issues that just DO NOT go away. Looking at the Activity Monitor, this little piggy is using 99%-126% of my CPU. I can't believe it. That's full fledged pork. I'm attempting to reconcile a bank statement by simply making a notation at the top of the PDF stating the date of reconciling then highlighting in yellow the transactions as compared to my entries in Quicken. How hard could that possibly be? Well, in my case pretty hard. I select the red stroke, red text and yellow background and click to type text and immediately it is black text on a black background. Or red text on a red background. Or yellow text on a yellow background. Just gangs of fun. Do an option-command OCR document then save and I've got a minimum 3-4 minute wait if I'm lucky. If I'm not lucky, it never saves, I have to resort to force-quiting the application. I've sent an email to Smile, but haven't heard back. It's the holiday I suppose. I would love to rave about this program, but my frustration is drowning out any joy. Shut down, un-plug, restart with command-option-P-R all held down and try 'er again, same song, with many verses. Really a bummer. Jon
