[prMac.com] Parede, Portugal - SintraWorks today is delighted to announce PDFClerk Pro 3.8, an update to their very popular PDF Document Editor for Mac OS X. PDFClerk Pro is a multi-faceted PDF editor with powerful and unique capabilities. It is designed to make standard operations easy and accessible, while allowing ample flexibility and adjustment to more complicated workflows for those with more advanced needs. Print out manuals, reports, essays, articles, web pages and more, in a convenient and economic way. Users may even create books for languages that read from right to left, such as Arabic, Chinese and Hebrew.
PDFClerk Pro allows a large number of manipulations to existing PDF documents, as well as allowing the creation of PDF documents from non PDF material, such as graphics and text, or a mix of the two. The application offers sensible default behaviour to quickly create new PDF documents with both basic and more advanced layouts, and easily print booklets for personal use, distribution to clients, staff or students.
