General / Re: Custom fields missing after windows update

That did the trick, thanks. I did stumble a bit, thinking I had found them all. However one of the keys down in the tree was selected when I searched. More were found after I selected root nodes. People more familiar with the registry editor may have known how to do that properly, but I had to learn from experience. Thanks again.

With the Windows registry editor tool, search for PDFShellTools.PDF.Creator (in the data field only), and delete all the instances of values named FullDetails and PreviewDetails in the key where the the search find that data. Keep searching, and deleting these values, until no more are found.
Now use the manager to define again the properties you what in the details pane.

I'm having similar trouble again: custom fields are not appearing in the details pane, though they do show up in the tooltips, infoedit, and everywhere else. I had tried to add a new field, and all of the custom ones vanished. I can't even hide some of the default ones. Checking or unchecking the boxes has no effect on which ones are displayed, and those selections revert to default each time the Manager is opened. Running the command line routine given above as an admin has no effect, even after a reboot. Windows 10.0.17134 Build 17134, 64-bit.

Hi Sophie,
You can do it with the Edit info fields batch tool.
General / Editing keywords for multiple files simultaneously
« Last post by sophiemcleod on August 31, 2018, 02:06:36 AM »

I'm trying to manually edit keywords (tags) for multiple pdf's simultaneously... is there any way to do this? I'm hoping to use this to search for pdfs with specific keywords.

The manager fix worked great. Probably caused by Windows update as there have been several since I last worked on this. Many thanks

Hello Mario,
There are almost no situations where a re-installation is needed. The manager can usually fix all these issues. For this one in particular, just create a dummy custom field, to make the custom properties list dirty (in order to get the apply button active) and apply these changes. You can then remove the dummy field. Check also if all the properties you want visible in the details pane are checked in the "details pane items" tab.
This situation may occur when the shell default PDF reader is changed and also with major Windows updates.
Regarding your license password. You may always request assistance, from your license registered email address, to get that info back.

I have returned to a project after some time away and found custom columns missing. I checked the manager and they are still there but don't appear in the details pane. I tried to reinstall but could not remember my password.  Need some help please

The batch print tool relies on external PDF reader tools, e.g. Acrobat for the DDE method, and the default shell PDF reader (if it has a shell print verb configured), and is not working properly with new Acrobat/Windows versions for the DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) server method (I need to investigate why and fix it, if possible).
Next version will include a builtin print solution, making this tool functionality independent of what the user system has available.

But the best approach to your problem may be the use of the merge tool, menu Tools>Merge\RearrangePages, to merge all the documents you wanna print, in the required order, and then print the result PDF from your preferred PDF reader. Do you see any problems with this method?
