Hi Alex,

We meet again! I mentioned in my other post for you that I've been using PaperPort for more than 15 years, and I've been using an excellent file manager, called Total Commander, for about the same time:

http://www.ghisler.com/

It provides an attributes plugin that lets you add comments (metadata) to any file. Here's a screenshot of the <Change attributes> dialog for a PDF file:

tc-metadata1
As you can see, I entered three comments for the PDF file. To edit/view a comment in its entirety, you click the >> button, which shows this:

tc-metadata2
It offers other metadata items, as the following drop-down list shows:

tc-metadata3
It is not free, but it is among the best 46 dollars (USD) that I've ever spent. Well, I probably spent less many years ago when I bought it (and all upgrades have been free), but that's what a personal license costs today. Also, the personal license grant is generous. Here's a quote:

"The registered version may be installed on as many computers as desired, as long as it is used by only one person at any one time (I.e. one installation at home and one at the office used by the same person). Therefore you need only one licence for a port connection between two computers. The usage by multiple people at the same time (on multiple computers) requires additional licences."

It is an extremely robust product, doing lots of other stuff, such as having a dual pane (left-side/right-side) file manager interface, an FTP client, folder synchronization, file comparison tools, etc., but I have limited my response to addressing just your issue. Btw, the support is fabulous. When I send an email to tech support, I always get a prompt, accurate answer. In more than a decade of using this file manager, from Windows 95 through my current 64-bit W7, it has never messed up a file.

My usual disclaimer: I want to emphasize that I have no affiliation with this company and no financial interest in it whatsoever. I am simply a happy user/customer. Regards, Joe

Btw, it is not limited to PDF files. That was simply the example that I used. It will work on any file type. Regards, Joe
