"Thank you so much for your reply! Everything you told me worked like a charm. To be honest...I didn't even expect a reply. I've emailed companies so many times and as far as I can recall...this is the very first time someone ever even bothered to reply at all. You not only replied...but you replied promptly—and—actually solved my problems!"

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I share my files with PDFpen on my Mac?

The easiest way is to use iCloud.

Turn on iCloud storage in the Settings of PDFpen 2. Once turned on your files are automatically saved to iCloud.

On your Mac, open Finder and you should see "PDFpen" listed under "iCloud". You can also open and save documents stored in iCloud directly from the PDFpen open/save dialog.

If you don't see the iCloud > PDFpen option in Finder you can track down your iCloud files in Finder by choosing View > Go to Folder (Cmd+Shft+G) and pasting in this location:
~/Library/Mobile Documents/7PKJ6G4DXL~com~smileonmymac~PDFpen/Documents

Another popular way is Dropbox. Setup a Dropbox sync folder in PDFpen on your iPhone or iPad.

How can I share documents using Box, or Alfresco?

We recommend iCloud Drive to access files in those services.

Why does a gray arrow appear in the corner of my PDF document's icon?

This indicates changes to your PDF are being saved to iCloud. You may also see a progress bar at the bottom of the icon, indicating the progress of an update.

I lost a document. Where did it go?

If you drag a document to move it, you can drop it in a folder by accident. Check your folders for your missing document.
