Need to quickly and easily make changes to PDFs? SamucoPDF is your Mac native solution. Add text, images, shapes, pen annotations, fill out PDF forms and much much more!
Power at the Core
SamucoPDF is built using advanced Snow Leopard PDF technologies to deliver a simple but powerful pdf editor. Large documents can be easily opened within fractions of a second.
Mark up and make changes to PDFs
With SamucoPDF tools, you can add many different types of annotations into your PDF document. Annotations such as text, squares, circles, lines, pen, links, signatures, images and much more can be easily added in a few clicks. You can even correct spelling mistakes or other text in PDF Documents (SamucoPDF whites out the existing text and places a new text box on top of it). Using SamucoPDF tools, you can highlight, underline and strikethrough text.
Create simple forms
Using the Create Form feature in SamucoPDF, you are able to easily create simple textfield forms. These forms can then be sent to others to be filled out.
Easy to Use
SamucoPDF is intuitive and simple to learn. We have studied word processing applications to make your SamucoPDF experience the best possible. You shouldn't need to learn how to use a program, it should be natural. SamucoPDF works exactly how you would expect it to.
What's New in Version 1.5.1
Bug fixes and performance enhancements.
Works, but has a lot of weird issues.
This app works for some things, like drawing on top of a PDF, really well. However, there are a bunch of strange issues all accross the app that really drag down the experience. To list a few:
1. New text boxes are placed in the center of the page, not the screen, so if you are zoomed in you might not even see the text box you just created.
2. Form insertion support is really poor, basically broken. The forms don’t align with their labels correctly and there is a drop down menu in the editor that let’s use select the type of field- but there’s only one available. Yes, this app has a drop-down menu with only one item.
3. Shift click doesn’t work: if you have made a habit of using shift click to resize images without changing the aspect ratio, it won’t work here. Particularly annoying when resizing stamps.
4. You can’t customize the toolbar, despite it being a pretty standard toolbar.
However, I hold out hope that the developer will polish up this application, becase there are a lot of things it does right:
1. Drawing on pdfs -something you can’t do in Preview, but works like a charm here.
2. Anything you can do in Preview you can do here.
3. Built-in help documentation built right in to apple help, feels right at home in OS X.
4. Nice icon. No, really, it looks pretty cool.
So in summary, there’s still work to be done here, but for three dollars, this is a good application for drawing on PDFs.
