my registered copy has weirdly started demanding a password, and won't accept mine.

I went to the developers site, and when I clicked on purchase I got this at Kagi: “All our products have been discontinued. You cannot buy them anymore. Free versions should be available shortly.“

Obviously I'm keen to get the free one to replace my paid for one that thinks it is a demo

- preference issue I guess - tried to repair prefs - same prob.

Can anyone help?

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!

this app is amazing

it works, when even booting from my external and using disk tools doesnt!

please make sure the Tiger version stays available I'm on an iMac g5 on 10.4.11 and if you own one and it's going wrong with howling fans and sleep- try this tip which was unknown even by applecare tech - there is an extra fan inlet durectly under the stand hinge- unless you know its there its invisible- if its clogged and mine looked like the showerdrain in a student house - just clean it and the fan problem goes away.

Applejack is brilliant!

i discovered that the latest version doesn't work under 10.4.11 (on my PPC machine)

so I emailed the developer, and to my surprise and delight he responded within hours with a link on the webpage to the last version for 10.4 - it's down on the bottom right

so tell me.

I'm obviously a total idiot, becauseI have read the helpfile, which is sparse to say the least.

so go ahead tell me wjere I'm going wrong. tell me what a fool I am to fail to get to grips with this easy application after 23 years of using Macs [and PCs], even after reading the help.

because that really would help.

so come on, tell me.

this is not a 1.02 release
this is not even a 0.4 relase!

it reminds me of HyperCard 0.8 plus microsoft paint.

nothing works, 'new' isn't even in the file menu.

did an intern release this by mistake?

I responded to the maczot offer to buy it for half price.

at the moment you would have to pay me 99$ to even touch it again!


did you release it by mistake?

or for a laugh?

I have and like some koingo software. but sorry guys, this is awful.

Best wishes
