Use built-in PDF tagging feature to help organize files
Authored by: elmimmo on Dec 21, '09 05:22:34PM

Yep 2 uses OpenMeta (with its pluses and minuses). The metadata is stored on the file's resource fork. So it is a bit more flexible than you say, and it can survive *certain* computer-to-computer transitions.

I use built-in PDF/JPEG/TIFF keywords for things that describe the document in a non-personal way (i.e. would be useful to others as much as to me) to aid in searching for specific docs, but rely on Yep 2 for organizational purposes (so many of the Yep tags I use I would not want to be embedded in the file itself, just as you do not want the name of the folder the file is enclosed in to be embedded in the file itself).

Yep 2 can also read PDF built-in keywords, BTW.
