Really like the new added features.   :Thmbsup:
Bet you never thought in a million years this question would be coming...  :D
How difficult would it be to add the ability of editing a couple of the fields in the "info  box"?  Title, Subject and Keywords.

Thanks

Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything in the Xpdf package that would allow me to edit fields.

No problem.  It would just have saved a few extra clicks.
I can launch a selected PDF to bring it up in PDF-Xchange, click properties, make my change(s) and re-save.  Only thing is the change(s) do not show up in PDFInfoGUI until I close it, re-start and re-load the folder. Or selecting all, deleting and re-entering the folder again.  I understand why this is, though probably not in the correct  technical terms.

Would there be a way to refresh the list with the same folder to pick up the changes without closing and restarting PDFInfoGUI?  Or deleting all and re-entering the folder again?  Just trying to save some steps.

I will very often save articles off the Internet, as "print to pdf" files. I will not take the time to edit properties, but merely give them descriptive filenames. This means that PDFInfoGUI is showing some 200 files in my ebook-folder to have no titles,,  so it becomes tedious for me to scroll horizontal to read which file is which. Is it possible to add the option to change order of columns?

As said, I have a ebook-folder. Any chance of a "fav folder"-button?

You already can.  Simply drag-n-drop the columns in whichever order you wish.  Their order and widths will automatically be saved when you exit the program.

Let me see what I can come up with.  Thanks for the feedback.

I just joined the forum , and found this PDFINFO utility very awesome. I have some queries.

1) I would like to found any PDF file in a particular folder with Empty data but showing Page 1 , is it possible. I want to delete such files for my process .

2) Any Command line utility available also for populating PDFINFO which will extract data [such as filename and page number] to CSV format, i am not sure please guide as i am just using the GUI part.

Thanks Awaiting

Hi, Kevan, and welcome to the DonationCoder forums.   :D

1) I would like to found any PDF file in a particular folder with Empty data but showing Page 1 , is it possible. I want to delete such files for my process .

I'm not quite sure what you mean here.  Could you describe the use case in more detail, please?

2) Any Command line utility available also for populating PDFINFO which will extract data [such as filename and page number] to CSV format, i am not sure please guide as i am just using the GUI part.

PDFInfoGUI does have an export to CSV function but I think you want that functionality without having to use the GUI, correct?

No, PDFInfoGUI does not have that sort of functionality.
