Comments in details
« on: February 25, 2014, 02:36:32 PM »
I'm evaluating your software, trying to achieve a simple goal.

I need to have the NTFS comments (windows xp summary tab->comments) in the details tab on windows  7 and 8. I checked on your InfoTip and the NTFS Comments show as Comments: xxxxxxxx(the comment)

I created a custom field and mapped it to System.Comments but I get an empty "Comments" field on Details. I'm guessing it's not the same.

Any help? If I can achieve this, I'm buying the software.

Check this forum related topic.

The current version includes that script, to copy the metadata from the NTFS ADS to the PDFs metadata, as a sample script (check the attached image).
The script copies all the summary information fields (Title, Subject, Author, Keywords and Comments) to the equivalent, and custom for the comments, fields. If you only want to copy the comments you need to edit the script and change the line
Code: [Select]
FIELDS = ['Title', 'Subject', 'Author', 'Keywords', 'Comments'];to just
Code: [Select]
FIELDS = ['Comments'];
The script puts the comments data in a comments named custom field, so you need to have a custom field already defined also named "Comments". Check second screenshot.

Try with a sample file first, to see if it works.
