Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Nov 5, 2013

PDFpenPro resolves one of the biggest issues users have with PDF documents -- their intractability when edits are needed. Rather than requiring expensive first-party software for edits or a source file, PDFpenPro allows you to quickly and easily edit the documents, changing text, highlighting segments, and adjusting on-page elements. It's not as powerful as the full Acrobat suite, but it's close and it's a lot more accessible.

When you open PDFpenPro, you're asked to register for ease of updates and file saving, but it's not required. You can then immediately start opening and editing files. It's very easy to do and we were surprised by just how fast it works. Editing text, highlighting, copying, and pasting was done in split seconds and didn't take the usual five to ten-second delays that you'll find in a lot of other PDF editors. The result is an app that will prove very useful if you need to make annotations to a PDF, highlight text, or even edit the text within the document. The interface is clean but easy to navigate and feature rich and everything is really fast - one of the primary benefits of this app.

If you need a new and more accessible PDF editor, consider PDFpenPro. From adding text to the Apple-specific Mac OS X features you want and need in a PDF editor and creator, this app works well from top to bottom. It is free to try and the full version is $99.95, so it is comparable to Acrobat but with a lot more OS X-specific features -- and you can't beat the speed here.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PDFpenPro for Mac 6.1.
