PDFpen 10 Adds Watermarks, Headers and Footers, and Enhanced Selections

Smile, the developer of productivity applications for Mac(R), iPhone(R) and iPad(R), launches PDFpen and PDFpenPro 10.0, a new major version of its all-purpose PDF editing tool for Mac. Version 10 introduces watermarks, headers & footers, and for Pro users, batch OCR (Optical Character Recognition).


Add text and image watermarks with opacity and rotation controls, as well as custom page range options. Use watermarks to identify draft or confidential in-house documents, assert copyright, or clarify intended distribution.


Apply header and footer text with options for customizing page position, font, and page range.


PDFpenPro 10 offers batch OCR for turning multiple scans into searchable documents all at once.


The new Precision Edit tool in PDFpen and PDFpenPro 10 adds selection options and supports moving, resizing, and deleting line art and text blocks. This new tool maintains or decreases file size when moving, resizing and deleting images.


PDFpen 10 includes several additional improvements, including a larger view option for Library items, vibrant drawing colors, and more context menu actions.


“It’s always exciting to deliver features your customers have asked for,” said Philip Goward, Smile founder. “And with version 10 offering watermarks, headers & footers, and batch OCR just to name a few, we have done just that.”


PDFpen and PDFpenPro 10 work with PDFpen for iPad & iPhone version 3, 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).

PDF Decrypter Pro v2.2 for Mac OS X Offers Easy Decryption of PDF Files

Guangzhou, China – Adeptshare is proud to announce the release of PDF Decrypter Pro 2.2 for macOS, their easy to use utility developed to decrypt any password-protected PDF files. The app allows anyone to decrypt a protected PDF file, offering them the ability to easily edit, print, select text and graphics for use in other documents, and more.


Occasionally, Mac users will receive PDF documents that are protected via an owner password, which usually restricts a number of actions. Restricted actions can include: editing, printing, copying text & graphics to use in other documents, and more. PDF Decrypter Pro is a compact, simple to use OS X utility created to do one just thing, and to do it well, decrypt password protected PDF files. Following decryption, anyone can make use of the PDF file in any way they wish.


“Encrypted PDF files are difficult to work with, resulting in needless frustration and extra work on the recipient’s part,” says Adeptshare CEO Zhong Linhua. “Using PDF Decrypter Pro, anyone can quickly and easily remove all password protection from any encrypted PDF document. This allows them to make use of the information contained in the document in any way they wish to.”


* Quickly decrypts encrypted PDF files
* Removes restrictions on printing, editing, copying
* Easy drag-and-drop file selection
* Handles 40-bit RC4 encryption, 128-bit RC4 encryption, and AES encryption
* Decrypted files can be edited like any other PDF document


PDF Decrypter Pro offers easy drag-and-drop file selection, or users can select multiple files via the cleanly designed file selection interface. Once files have been selected for decryption, a simple click of the button immediately begins the speedy decryption process. Users can track the decryption process, which is handily displayed in the Results Column.


PDF Decrypter Pro users love the app:


“Many thanks. A very useful tool. I don’t have the full Adobe Acrobat installed on my new laptop, so PDF Decrypter Pro is a great help as I want to remove the restrictions on a particular document right now.” – Iain B, DonationCoder user


“Nothing is more annoying than being sent a password protected PDF and having to track down the sender to get the password. Much appreciated. I have re-tweeted this and posted it on my Facebook page.” – Tom Draxler


The compact and well-designed PDF Decrypter Pro application can remove various types of encryption, including: 40-bit RC4, 128-bit RC4, and AES encryption. The app also allows removal of editing restrictions from compressed files and unencrypted data. And while the application doesn’t require Adobe Acrobat to be installed for its operation, it is compatible with all versions of the Acrobat application.


PDF Decrypter Pro cannot:
* Remove or find the user/open password automatically
* Remove other protections, such as DRM or third-party plug-ins
* Enable Acrobat Reader to save forms and data locally, add comments, or add digital signatures


“Our app prevents the frustration of needing to recreate a protected file when the password has been lost, or the employee that originally encrypted the document is no longer with the company,” continues Linhua. “Retyping the content of a password-protected PDF file is something most users do not want to do. PDF Decrypter Pro saves users the hassle of creating an entirely new document from scratch.”


System Requirements:
* OS X 10.6.6 or later
* 64-bit processor
* 10.2 MB


Pricing and Availability:
PDF Decrypter Pro 2.2 is only $29.99 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies), and is available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category. It is also available through the PDF Decrypter website. A Windows version of the application is also available. Review copies are available upon request.
