Searching for PDF files by certain attributes does not work

Question / Problem

PDF files are not found when using TreeSize's file search and using an attribute like "Tags" as filter for example. How do I fix this?

Answer / Solution

The default IFilter that Windows uses to handle PDF files is unfortunately not capable of providing the necessary information so TreeSize can't get the data as a result.

To fix this, please install a different IFilter. You can use the free version of PDF-XChange Editor for example as this comes with an IFilter that provides everything TreeSize needs to get all attributes from PDF files.
