Clean and practical appearance
The utility features a simple and easy to understand user interface, enabling even the less experienced to handle it immediately after installation.
The main window features a panel where all the added files will be listed, while on the right-side, you will be able to read each document’s information, including several important details that you may not want to make public, should you share the file with other people.
Effortlessly edit the metadata of your documents
In order to add the items you wish to work with into MetaClean, you can click on the ‘Load Documents’ button, then browse through your computer and locate the targeted files, being able to open several at once. At the same time, the tool supports drag and drop operations, so you can also resort to this alternative for loading your files.
MetaClean supports a wide range of formats, including Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio) files, OpenOffice (ODS, ODT, ODP) documents and PDFs. After inputting the targeted files, even in mixed formats, you can click on each item and reveal its specific information.
As such, you can change or erase the ‘Title’, ‘Subject’ or ‘Author’ of a document, but also the ‘Creation’ and ‘Modification Date’, ‘Keywords’, ‘Manager’, ‘Company’, ‘Custom Properties’, ‘Category’, ‘Status’ and even the person to have altered the file last. Other potential details that you can remove or modify are the ‘Last Printed’ date, the application it was used to create it with or any comments.
A handy metadata editor
To sum it up, MetaClean is a useful and easy to handle program that can successfully assist you in editing the information of your PDFs or your Microsoft Office and OpenOffice files, with just a few keystrokes required.
