The next time you need to make changes to a PDF, you may want to have your PDFpen handy. Released by
at this week’s
Macworld Conference & Expo, this new application allows you to re-order pages in a PDF or remove them entirely, drag and drop pages between documents, change the page view, and overlay text and images onto PDFs.
Commented co-author Philip Goward: “Receive a PDF document requiring your signature? Fire up PDFpen, drag and drop your signature image, save your document, and you’re done. Need to cut out a cover page? No problem.”
In addition, you can use PDFpen in tandem with SmileOnMyMac’s
to fax your PDFs, and the application supports automated changes with AppleScript. PDFpen requires Mac OS X v.10.2.5 or higher and is available now as a 30-day free trial demo. Pricing runs US$29.95 for 1-4 copies, $26.95 for 5-9 copies, and $23.95 for 10-99 copies.
SmileOnMyMac also took advantage of Macworld Expo to update its award-winning CD labeling software disclabel to version 1.3, which includes a new NEATO store for buying more labels, an improved hierarchical paper menu, image compatibility updates, and a variety of other minor fixes.
disclabel allows you to create labels for your CDs, DVDs, and their cases. You can use the application’s pre-designed templates or create your own; import track lists and images directly from iTunes, iPhoto, and iDVD; print on a variety of label and paper sizes; place and edit multi-line text laid in a circle; and automate label creation with AppleScript. In addition, you can download new templates from the Internet and buy Fellowes/NEATO labels at a built-in store.
disclabel 1.3 requires Mac OS X v.10.2 (Jaguar) and is also available as a 30-day free trial demo. Pricing runs $29.95 for 1-4 copies, $26.95 for 5-9 copies, and $23.95 for 10-99 copies. A single site license is $1,750 and a worldwide site license is $3,750.
