pdf shell tools / Windows 10
« on: August 20, 2017, 09:14:40 AM »
Hi, I am running pdf shell tools under Win 10 pro v1703. I can view pdf Metadata in details pane or preview metadata section but cannot edit them.
Do I need current version of pdf shell tools in order to work with win 10?

Just tested, v2.6.3 on Win 10 pro 1703, and I can edit standard, and custom, fields metadata without problem, from the Windows Explorer detail pane, preview pane (using the preview handler tools metadata edit pane) and file properties dialog details and InfoEdit tabs, so all still working as designed.

What's happening in your case? Does it show any error message when saving the changes or the fields are just read only?

Run the manager and recycle the Property Handler extension registration. I.e. uncheck it and apply the changes and then check it and apply the changes again.
Now, using the Windows task manager, select the Windows Explorer process and click the restart button.
