PDFactory - your PDF toolbox.

Using Drag & Drop you are able to re-order the pages, to insert and remove them and to drag pages from one document to another. Additionally you can split and (re-)merge PDF documents easily.

The innovative Drop Box lets you convert your pictures into PDF documents - simply by dragging them from the Finder into PDFactory.

And most exciting is the ability to copy with one click the entire text content of the document or of pages into the clipboard to use them in other applications.

Customer Reviews

Need to sort randomly placed PDF pages?

You can't really do much better than PDFactory. This app makes me glad that the App Store exists. I never would have found it using Google as Google never associated PDFactory with a page sorter.

PDFactory works very well.

I'd like to see the addition of the ability to sort on a fixed location's string of text. That is, select the fixed field location on a page with a box, perhaps. Then sort a range of pages that have text in that location alphabetically using the strings that are at that box location on every page in the sort range.

Thanks for the app. It's really helpful!

Deletes text from pdfs and freezes

This app deletes all the text you might have added to your pdf and there's no possibility to recover it unless you have a backup of it. Also every time I want to work on a new file I have to close and open the app again or it just freezes. Not recommended.

5k Retina Display

I have been using this app for awhile and it does everything I need it to do. Copying and pasting pages is a real time saver! The app does not work correctly on my 5K Retina iMac using 10.12 It does work fine on my non 5K Macs running 10.12 On the 5K it merges 3 or 4 pages together and you can not sort unless you zoom in and zoom out but that usually makes the app crash. I would love to give it 5 stars but I just need it to work correctly on the Retina display.
