PDFpen is a PDF editing utility designed for Mac users. With its help, you can fill forms, add text content or images to your PDF documents, annotate PDFs, and so much more.
This program might also prove to be of good use if you need to convert PDF files into formats that are compatible with the Microsoft Word app.

PDFpen is packed with OCR technology, support for multiple image formats, various PDF editing options, and so much more. Another great aspect is that you can import documents directly from your scanner and immediately edit them.

Once you finish editing your PDF document, you can export it to various formats (DOCX, RTF, TXT, TIFF, JPEG, etc.) or share it with other people, directly from the app's interface.

However, you can find a cheaper solution for editing PDFs. They don't provide you with as many features as PDFpen offers, but they bring basic editing options that might come in handy to some users. Also, the developer of PDFpen also gives you access to a Pro edition of the app which gives you access to more advantages.

In my opinion, you should first test the trial version of this program and then decide if you wish to acquire it for your Mac, look for a different solution or try the Pro edition of the app.
