As iPad apps get more and more advanced in dealing with PDF music, I find I want to go back and alter my PDF’s from the past two years. Now I am seeing a great advantage to having metadata embedded into these PDF’s. Metadata is what you are given the opportunity to input when you create a PDF file from the Print menu in OSX – It allows you to put in a Title, Author, Subject, and Keywords. The problem is that it is not an option in Preview to go in later and change that data.
Tonight I did a few google searches and came across one other app, for OSX, that will allow me to change an entire folder of files at once!
PDFInfo is a free app that allows for changes to all files in a certain folder or you can change one file at a time. Here is a screenshot of this app at work. I think I will be using all three options to get this metadata filled in – it just depends on which metadata I am trying to input and at what stage in the creating or using of the PDF I am at.
