I was wondering if there was any way to get the metadata (author, title, keyword etc.) in a PDF to view in directory opus or if I can't is it possible to do a batch copy from the metadata into the document columns? I'd like to set up certain collection based on some of the metadata in the PDF.
I don't think it's possible at the moment. If there's any information on how to read the metadata from a PDF file let me know and I'll add it to the to-do list for the Docs plugin.
There's an excellent freeware product that does a great job managing .pdf metadata called
PDF Explorer @ rtt.planetaclix.pt
It would be nice to have some of that functionality in Dopus.
