Handy but...

I use this to merge files, which works well, once I figured out how. But, and this is annoying, I haven’t been able to specify the order of the files to be merged. No matter what it try I can’t change the order of files. This is annoying, and means I will need to fix it on my Mac. I might as well just do it there in the first place.

No Better PDF Application

I have been using this application for a while and have been absolutely thrilled with it. When the latest IOS3.2 software update came out it created some issues with this program. I contacted the wonderful folks at PDF Pro and advised them of the issues the latest software update caused and they immediately got back to me. I was told that a new updated version would be coming out with remedies that would fix the problems and within less than a week today that update came through. Wow, all this issues have been fixed and I am once again extremely happy with this incredible PDF program!

Updates still getting worse...

Seems like most updates break something... this latest release can’t seem to remember where in a pdf you were. Goes back to some random place earlier in the pdf...

If you just return to the main screen, it looses its place. If you close the file and reopen, it remembers. It’s a hassle to have to close the file before exiting to keep state.

Oh, and support is singularly unhelpful. You get a standard reply asking you to send them that particular pdf. No other response. Since it does it with all files, I’m not inclined to send them all my PDFs.
