Reading for pleasure is one thing, but when you've got to read and handle business documents because you're working at home during the coronavirus outbreak, you need apps that won't get in your way, and will help you stay on top of everything.
The new update of both PDFpen and its sister app PDFpenPro turn this into as much of a PDF creator as it is an editor. You can now use word processor-like split views to show different parts of your document, and you have better controls for changing fonts.
The iPad and iPhone have always been great for reading PDFs, and lately Apple has added more tools for annotating them. Yet, there are third-party alternatives that are so exceptionally good that you need them whenever you're working with PDFs.
As much as we fail to give Apple's free Preview app enough respect, it is true that there are PDF editing jobs it can't do. Yet there are many third-party apps that will let you do the most remarkable changes to any PDF you have.
The more you need to edit or alter PDFs, the closer you come to needing third-party apps. Yet again, though, the Mac comes with PDF tools that are capable and useful — so let's talk about how to use them.
You've been able to make a PDF out of any document on Macs for years. We take it so much for granted, though, that we don't know what extra options we've got — nor noticed how Apple is trying to change the way we're supposed to make PDFs. AppleInsider walks you through making a PDF, with only the tools that come with macOS.
