First, I'd like to say PDF-ShellTools is very useful and time saver !
To make it perfect to me, I have several suggestions to make.
Here is the third (and most complex) one :
- Could a Double type Custom Field be filtered in Detail view by (automatic) range ?
I have a custom fields 'Amount'. It would be perfect to be able to filter file by ranges (like : 0-100 ; 100-200 ; 200-500 ; Up 500).
The range could be computed automatically or (at least) be configured in settings.

I suppose it would be something as used for the system.size, but until now, and playing with the typeInfo groupingRange attribute and displayInfo.enumeratedList.enumRange, I found only a way to crash the Shell!!
Let me know if you have more success.

Seems typeInfo type = UInt64 only, no ?

I am now able to make enum & enumRange work.
However, when I set typeInfo groupingRange from "Discrete" to "Enumerated" and try to filter, Explorer still crashes.

You can set the typeInfo type to UInt64. The system will convert without problem.

Work in the filter and group functionalities?!
Please share your PDFShellTools.propdesc file.

Enumerated?! I don't see that value as possible for this attribute. Only Discrete, Alphanumeric, Size, Date, TimeRelative, Dynamic, and Percent.
In my case only crash if set to Size, the one I think would work.
