Scanning Change in PDFpen and PDFpenPro 6.0.4

In the sidebar “Scan setting side-effects” (pg. 51 in the PDF), the following note appears:

Because of Apple’s sandboxing rules, changing the destination of your scans from the Pictures folder with the Scan To pop-up menu is only temporary—the next time you launch PDFpen, the destination is set back to the Pictures folder.

In version 6.0.4, PDFpen and PDFpenPro no longer present a Scan To pop-up menu. In fact, PDFpen and PDFpenPro no longer save scans to a separate location when they add scans to a PDF with the Import from Scanner command. Instead, scans are only added to the active PDF; when the PDF is saved, the scan is included. This change was made because Apple’s Image Capture framework, used for scanning, has a bug that allows you to choose locations where you cannot, in fact, save a scan. Smile has eliminated the Scan To option because of this bug.
