The next time you need to make changes to a PDF, you may want to have your PDFpen handy. Released by
SmileOnMyMac 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
Page Sender 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.
