PDFpen 11.1 Improves Column and Table Data Selection, Adds Automatic Page Rotation Options

Angel Vu Press

July 9, 2019 – Smile, the developer of productivity applications for Mac®, iPhone® and iPad®, has released PDFpen and PDFpenPro 11.1, an update to its all-purpose PDF editing tool for Mac. Version 11.1 improves column and table data selection and adds automatic page rotation options for scans.

Version 11.1 improves column and table data recognition in documents, providing greater accuracy for selecting and copying data from a table’s columns or cells.

Rotated pages in scanned documents can be detected and automatically corrected for more accurate OCR results.

“In paperless workflows, the ability to reliably extract data, or quickly correct page orientation in scans adds tremendous value and improves efficiency. Version 11.1 now makes selecting and copying column and table data much easier,” said Philip Goward, Smile founder. “Also, we’re excited to add automatic page rotation options for scans. Double your productivity and let PDFpen detect and correct rotated and skewed pages for you!”

PDFpen and PDFpenPro 11 work with PDFpen for iPad & iPhone version 4, allowing seamless editing across devices when used with Dropbox or iCloud.

PDFpen retails for US $74.95, PDFpenPro for US $124.95. Family Pack licenses, which cover up to five computers in one household, are US $94.95 for PDFpen and US $149.95 for PDFpenPro. Office Pack licenses start at US $224.95 for PDFpen (5 users) and US $349.95 for PDFpenPro (5 users).

Upgrades from earlier single-user versions of either application are US $30, and free for users who purchased on or after January 1, 2019. Upgrades from any previous version of PDFpen to PDFpenPro 11 are US $50. Upgrade pricing for Family Packs and Office Packs available in our web store: https://smle.us/store
