Can Panorama X Add information to the “comments” section of a file? If you do a get info on a file you will see the comments area. Is that doable?
These comments are maintained by the Finder, not by the operating system itself. As far as I can tell, Apple has not provided a public API to access or modify these comments.
I just did a google search on this, and found this Stack Overflow question on this topic. Apparently it can be done with AppleScript. I’m not going to add a solution like this to Panorama itself, but since you can use AppleScript from within Panorama you could figure out how to do it.
Thank you Jim,
I was looking at AppleScript yesterday, I tried to see Panorama X library but it was not available, is Panorama X Scriptable wit AppleScript?
Panorama X itself is not scriptable, but it does have the
ExecuteAppleScript statements, so you can use those to script the Finder. It will be the Finder that puts those comments in.
