Commenteer is a drop utility for managing file comments in batch.

Visit the website for more information and a demo.

You can use the program for:

• Erasing comments
• Setting comments with a text field, or from the clipboard
• Appending extensions to comments
• Prepending prefixes to comments
• Listing comments to console log
• Setting comments from file's web location or EXIF date

These operations can be applied to a group of files, or folders:

To use Commenteer just drop a folder or collection of files on it or the main status window. The main status window displays progress as it processes the comments.

Click the "Preferences" button to specify options. In particular the function performed is determined from the value selected in the "Operation" popup menu. The operations include:

• Erase Comments: Removes the comments from all the files.

Oh yeah! This is the app you need!

I’ve been needing this for YEARS !! I like to add comments to all my files so I know their provenance beyond any doubt.
I’ve been editing the comments for my files by hand one at a time and it’s tedious! This thing, is the shiz!
My work load just went down by about 90% !!
Oh how I wish I had bought this a looooong time ago!
At least I found it. Many, many thanks to the author(s) !!

Simple and fast, just as an App should be. I *love* the option to have comments automatically added from the clipboard. I can now copy text from an email, drag/drop the relevant file onto Commenteer and instantly the text I copied is inserted as a spotlight comment for the file. No fuss, no muss, done! Love it.


Helpfull little utility
