PDFpen is a capable office tool that helps you modify PDF documents with ease. You can use this program to make PDF annotations, highlight important phrases, attach signatures, add geometrical shapes, and many other.

After you select the input file, you can choose from dozens of editing tools which are displayed on the main toolbar of the app. The program lets you undo an unlimited number of actions, find words within the PDF file, correct typos, and rearrange the content of the document according to your needs.

A good thing about working with this application is that you can turn scanned documents into editable files, thanks to the integrated OCR technology. Also, you can export PDF files to formats such as DOC or DOCX so that you can share them with Microsoft Office users.

Another advantage of PDFpen is that it also provides you with a helpful speech tool that can read the PDF's text out loud.

After you finish making the necessary PDF adjustments, you can save the file, export it to other formats or print it directly from the app's interface.

Nevertheless, the program brings an important disadvantage when it comes to exporting the results. The app fails to preserve the original layout whenever you convert PDF files to formats like RTF and TXT.

To summarize, PDFpen provides you with a simple and efficient way to alter the contents of your PDF documents. The app is simple to handle, comes with an effective search tool, and brings numerous editing utilities.
