When I convert an uncovered PDF to PDF (to get the metadata inserted) and I have a cover in the book folder then that cover is put at the front of the book. I create the covers to make it easy for me to see at a glance the nature of the book - ie Black border for legal, Green border for finance, Red border for debt etc.
Never mind, I'll blow them away with Nitro PDF
I should say why I want the Metadata in the PDFs. Content Searching, the IFilter I use will pick them up - I search across a variety of datasets not just what I have in calibre libraries, hence I use OS/FS Search Tools
I'm getting an error on pdfinfo - see attachment
Perhaps I need to register that dll - its not of course. Not a problem I can use exiftool. There's a how to here ==>> http://rossmounce.co.uk/2013/01/06/p...sing-exiftool/
