I want a stamp to write to the file metadata and be able to display the result in windows explorer. I have read PDF Stamp Secrets and can write to Custom Metadata but don't know how to display that custom field in explorer. Can I have the stamp write to a standard (non-custom) metadata field? Or, how do it get the custom field to display in explorer? Windows is pretty stingy with the file details it displays for PDF files, in fact there are no editable fields provided (like are available for Office files). I want this to work for multiple users hopefully without having to get the IT group involved to make (or allow) system modifications to make this work. Any ideas? Thank you.
Metadata for Windows Explorer is tagged with different names than the metadata for PDFs. Acrobat cannot copy the metadata to the tagged items of the file header.
There are tools like EXIFTool that can manipulate the data as necessary. Phil Harvey also provides the details about the file types and their metadata tags and values so you should be able to map the tags that need to be updated.
