MacVoices #13139: Michael E. Cohen Takes Control of PDFpen 6

Michael Cohen  and our friends at Take Control Books have just released Take Control of PDFpen 6, and Michael displays his enthusiasm for both the book and the program in this discussion. Starting with the fact that he *wanted* to write this book (a characteristic of all Take Control authors), Michael talks about the hot new features of PDFpen 6, including the ability to export to Microsoft Office format. Not sure why that’s a big deal? Michael gives a real-world example, and points out that, just because you are exporting to Office format doesn’t mean you have to use Office. How he teaches you to use and appreciate the power of PDFpen, some little-known features, the philosophy of Smile and their software, and why the software gets better and better are among some of the other topics Michael discusses.
