Readdle has released an updated version of its PDF Expert software for Mac, adding several new features that enhance editing options, increase search capabilities and strengthen security. PDF Expert 2 allows users to edit text and images in any PDF, making fixing typos or resizing logos and graphs a much more streamlined process. The software can also add links to text and photos, making any component within the PDF clickable and interactive. An editable table of contents makes navigating through a large file much faster using hotkeys, and a new redact feature lets users search for and remove sensitive information before sending out important documents. PDFs can also be password-protected to keep prying eyes away from private data.
New annotation tools enable simple changes like text markups and highlighting, but also allow users to draw and sketch within the document and create various diagrams, arrows, and watermarks. Expanded options for filling out fields within forms and signing documents using the trackpad are geared toward reducing the need for printing, making almost any necessary action possible in the digital workspace. PDF Expert 2 is available on Readdle’s website for $60 and offered as a free upgrade to existing PDF Expert users.
