Do you need to edit PDF files on your Mac? Previously, I’ve talked about Preview’s built-in editing features. If these features aren’t adequate for your needs most people think they need to get Adobe Acrobat, which currently costs $13-$15 per month with an annual subscription, but I prefer to use PDFPen which has a one-time cost of $75 (or $125 if you buy PDFPen Pro).
PDFPen Pro has allowed me to do anything I’ve ever needed to do to a PDF, including the following tasks:
- re-arrange pages
- add ore remove pages
- merge PDFs
- make a PDF searchable using OCR
- password protect a PDF and control whether others can edit, annotate or print the pdf
- create PDF forms
To learn everything that PDF Pen can do, check out the PDFPen online manual.
