saving edited PDF files
« on: December 27, 2013, 09:34:03 PM »
I am using PDF Explorer trial version.  I have been able to set up search columns which I believe will work.  I want to save the files in various folders so I can search one folder at a time.  Do I need to put these in Windows 7 or 8 or do I use PDF Explorer as the search engine.  If so, can I set up each folder as separate ICON?   Will I be able to move the finished data from the "trial" version to the purchased file without redoing it all over again?  Thanks, NormGuitar

PDF Explorer is a stand alone program, so all the metadata edit and search operations, and all the other functionalities the program provides, are only accessible from the program itself. If you need Windows search functionality, and edit of metadata properties from the Windows Explorer itself, you need the PDF-ShellTools.
Take also note that when you edit the metadata properties the changes are saved to the PDF Explorer database but also in the PDF file itself, even for custom properties. If you move/copy your PDFs into a different folder or disk the metadata goes with them, and is accessible to any program that can read metadata properties from PDF files.

What do you mean by this?

Yes. Trial versions are fully functional and if the licensed version is installed on top of the trial, even if expired, retains all the previous settings, so you will not notice any functional change.
