This Script AddIn adds a new command, ImageMeta, to DOpus. This command opens a dialog which allows a number of editing options (Find & Replace, Append, Prefix, Replace and Clear) for several Image metadata items (Authors, Copyright, Description, Instructions, Subject and Title).
Warning: There is no undo and this command will operate on multiple files with no confirmation request.

The script has configuration options in the Preferences / Toolbars / Scripts page. These options duplicate the command line arguments below. The arguments will override any script configuration options.
An additional option is available in the configuration (remember_position) which allows you to choose if the dialog remembers it's last used size and position.
