PDFpenPro Review:

You can open existing PDFs or open a working document in PDFpenPro to edit it further. You can even open multiple PDFs and move pages from other PDFs to your current working document.

First thing which comes to your mind when we refer to PDFs is the “Read-Only” feature. One awesome feature within PDFpenPro, which will change this perception is that PDFpenPro can actually edit the text embedded in a PDF document. You can erase the existing text and write something else. You can also replace text or redact text to block it or replace it. There are other familiar editing options as well, like highlight, underline, strikethrough, squiggle etc.

You can edit, realign, move and do hundreds of other things with the powerful PDFpenPro. Another feature not commonly found in other PDF editors is the option to edit using OCR. OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition helps you convert the non selectable text to selectable text in order to make it editable.

It supports multi-column text document. If you have a document of say 2-3 columns, when you select the document and paste it else where, the format layout is also preserved. It is a great option to help you get rid of formatting after pasting. Though this option did now always work in my case and I’ve contacted PDFpenPro support to find the solution.

You can add text, images and signatures to PDFs and also adjust resolution, color depth and contrast in an image or scanned document. You can save frequently-used images, signatures, objects and text in the Library Automate PDF manipulations with AppleScript and also save documents directly to Evernote.

PDFpenPro can take HTML pages, including websites online, and create a PDF document that includes all the web pages, complete with hyperlinks. Great for marking up a web site design in progress or downloading content to read offline. PDFpenPro lets you build cross-platform PDF forms by adding text fields, checkboxes and radio buttons. You can turn a scanned document into an interactive PDF form!


An absolute must! You do not recognize the need for PDFpenPro until you start using it and realize how much more you can do and do it effectively. I can not recommend it more – just go and get it!
