Manipulate PDF documents.

Overview

PDFLab lets you split and join PDF documents as well as insert images and blank pages. You will also be able to easily create PDF documents out of several images.
Its usage is really simple. You add your files in a list, select the pages you wish to include, order them the way you want and create a new PDF document.
PDFLab 2.0 also ships with tools that let you quickly split a document into many documents, (one document per page or one document for odd pages and one for even pages), encrypt or decrypt a document, add a watermark, interleave several documents.

What's new in PDFLab

Note: I apologize to all the users for the very long delay since the last version and the almost total lack of support I have provided. A new job and new life priorities are responsible for this.

Version 2.0.3r2: fixed a nasty bug which prevented ading files

Version 2.0.3:
  • First attempt at fixing a bug where the process could not be terminated and the user had to go grab the file manually from the Finder. Please provide some feedback on this if you were a victim of this bug !
  • Will now work properly with a Java 1.5 installation (no more blank toolbar).
  • Upgraded to iText 1.4.8

PDFLab is still the best PDF-unlocker. It decrypted (unlocked) any of my "secured" (locked) PDFs by doing this: Drag a PDF onto PDFLab's list, select it there, and press Apple-R. The application then rebuilds the locked doc and saves it 1:1 as an unlocked doc. Even if it was protected by a master password etc.pp.! (I'm using OSX.4.11.) BTW: It is not illegal to modify your PDF data 'for your own use'. It is only illegal to re-publish or re-sell etc. copyrighted PDF contents that you have modified without permission.

When trying to download, you get the next webpage. 404 Error File Not Found The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

i love PDFLab! but then i am in the early Jurassic still using 10.4.11 on a powerpc [imac g5] i use it for 4 neat things 1. removing pages 2. rotating pages - mega useful if there's a landscape diagram in a portrait doc 3. making pdfs work! sometimes [often] keynote's exported pdfs don't work. open 'em in pdflab and save and they're always fine 4. the usual pdflab purposes! note to snow cat users - you upgraded too early! 1. lots of bugs, especially with older software 2. lots of apps will just die. tip - wait, assess which apps that you depend on are at risk of the above, and WAIT and watch! here endeth the lesson great app!

If you want to run this application under Snow Leopard, check the "Open using Rosetta" option in the info, and it should run fine.

The application appears to use Java. It no longer works with the release of Java shipping by Apple. It uses depreciated Java calls and simply quits. Checking Console reveals [Deprecated] CocoaJava: com.apple.cocoa.foundation.NSRuntime [NSJavaVirtualMachine initWithClassPath:] FATAL: cannot initialize ObjCJava. Exit Exited with exit code: 255

Hmm, It was so easy to create multiple documents in one pdf booklet with last version of MAC OSX. So bad now it doesn't work with SnowLeopard v10.6.1.

PDFLab did work fine on my system under OSX snow leopard for sever hours; it suddenly quit and did not even respond* - I really wonder where the bug is sitting. It is not the first application that quits service under snow leopard in this way. The same happened for instance with visual hub - I got this one to work using some tricks, from case to case. *it is not even visible when I look at the system's activity using "top" in the terminal. In the case of visual hub, there seem to be some apple script errors. In the case of PDFLab, I really do not know. what the source could be... maybe someone can help me.

This program sadly does not work with Snow Leopard. And it looks like it is no longer being developed.

Yes, it works on 10.5.7. As Daniel noted, it crashes when attempting to add a file by clicking the icon at top left, but files can be dragged into PDFLab without problems. I used it to remove the password from a camera manual so I could add bookmarks (it's unbelievable that in 2009, manufacturers are still producing 150-page PDFs without bookmarks). Select the file in the PDFLab window, press Command-R and a new password-free version is created. Fantastic!
