What’s new in PDFpen & PDFpenPro 10?

This major new version of PDFpen and PDFpenPro introduces watermarks, headers & footers, and for Pro users, batch OCR (Optical Character Recognition).

Add text and image watermarks with opacity and rotation controls, as well as custom page range options. Use watermarks to identify draft or confidential in-house documents, assert copyright, or clarify intended distribution.

Apply header and footer text with options for customizing page position, font, and page range.

PDFpenPro 10 offers batch OCR for turning multiple scans into searchable documents all at once.

The new Precision Edit tool in PDFpen and PDFpenPro 10 adds selection options and supports moving, resizing, and deleting line art and text blocks. This new tool maintains or decreases file size when moving, resizing and deleting images.

PDFpen 10 includes several additional improvements, including a larger view option for Library items, vibrant drawing colors, and more context menu actions.

PDFpen and PDFpenPro 10 work with PDFpen for iPad & iPhone version 3, allowing seamless editing across devices when used with Dropbox or iCloud.
