PDF Pen Pro

macOS & Mac Apps

Hi all
I am trying this seemingly cool app, it's a PDF editor for OS X hence me writing to this list. Question is how exactly do I use one of these PDF editors? I see no way of inserting text into the document. So do I use an app like TextEdit, copy the text then paste it into the PDF document? Any help greatly appreciated but no mad rush as I'm not committing to a purchase yet. Thought to try it out after hearing good things about it on Mac lists for the visually impaired. Anyway cheers!

I'm not sure if you can simply use this app to add text to any pdf. The main use I have for it is with filling out tagged pdf forms. If your working with a properly tagged pdf you should be able to add text to the proper areas no problem. Look for a federal form or something like that to try it out. Remember that the pdf must be properly tagged in ordre for any app to be able to fil it out with a screen reader.If the pdf your dealing with is tagged you should see text fields on the different pages of the doc that you can type in. Hope this helps.There might be a way to add text to any pdf, but I have not played around with trying this.

I'm not sure if you can add text to just any document with this app. The main thing I use it for is filling out pdf forms, it works pretty well for that. If you want to try this just google a federal form or something like that and it should be a tagged pdf. If your document is properly tagged you should see text fields on each page of the doc that you can fill in. There might be a way to add text to any document, I have not played around with trying this. Hope this helps.
