Managing metadata via browser

In order to edit metadata, you need to start by choosing the file or the folder. Next you need to show the action menu by clicking the right mouse button and select "Manage metadata" action.

Minimum metadata model field names are visible in the dialog by default. The icon in front of the field name shows the status of the field. For some fields you can pick the field value from a list.

You can save the changes with action "Save".

You can add metadata fields by choosing "Add". This function is needed e.g. when you want to share a file outside IDA.

The character set used in IDA is UTF-8, which means e.g. that Latin-1 Scandinavian characters (åäöÅÄÖ) cannot be saved in the metadata of the IDA files.
