PDFpenPro is the advanced version of PDFpen. PDFpenPro does everything that PDFpen does, such as add signatures, edit text and images, perform OCR on scanned documents and export Microsoft Word documents. It also has the ability to create a PDF form, build a table of contents, and convert HTML files to PDF.

The new PDFpenPro 6 adds document permission settings. When you share a PDF, you can restrict printing, copying, and editing of your PDFs. You can also use the new automatic form field creation tool to convert a non-interactive form into an interactive PDF form with text fields and checkboxes automatically added.

PDFpenPro 6 is available on the Smile Store and the Mac App Store for $100. A free demo can be downloaded on the Smile site. Find out why Macworld calls PDFpenPro “the crème de la crème of PDF editing and annotating applications.”

Author’s Note:I’m a huge fan of PDFpenPro. Any time I find myself fighting Preview to do something to a PDF, PDFpen seems to do it. My favorite feature these days is a “Combine PDFs” script that it comes bundled with. Every few weeks when I’m filing my expense report at work, I’ll run that on all the receipts I have. It works with image files as well, and makes it easy for me to put everything in one file, which our tool requires. Thanks for sponsoring the site, Smile!
