PDFpen 9.1 Adds Bookmark Support, Improves Window Positioning

Maia Olson Press

San Francisco, CA – July 26, 2017 – Smile, the developer of productivity applications for Mac®, iPhone® and iPad®, has released PDFpen 9.1, an update to its all-purpose PDF editing tool for Mac. This version introduces Bookmarks, a special section at the top of the Table of Contents for linking to pages in the document. Bookmarks can be created in both PDFpen and PDFpenPro, whereas Table of Contents editing requires PDFpenPro. This version also re-opens any previously-opened documents at the same window size and position as when they were last closed.

PDFpenPro and PDFpen 9 work with PDFpen for iPad & iPhone version 2, allowing seamless editing across devices when used with Dropbox or iCloud.

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

Upgrades from earlier single user versions of either application are US $30, and free to users who purchased on or after January 1, 2017. Upgrades from previous versions of PDFpen to PDFpenPro 9 are $50. Upgrade pricing for Family Packs and Office Packs is found on our web store: http://smle.us/store

PDFpen 9 and PDFpenPro 9 require macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) and work great on macOS 10.12 (Sierra). For macOS 10.10 (Yosemite), see our website for compatible earlier PDFpen versions. Demo versions are available at https://smilesoftware.com/PDFpen/download. Full versions of PDFpen and PDFpenPro are also available for purchase on Apple’s Mac App Store.
