Sorry to be such a nuisance, but I have read about how to do this, but nothing I could find actually told me exactly how to do this.
I want to clear the Directory field using an Action.
Here is what I have done:
Action: Remove fields
Fields to remove (semicolon-separated): DIRECTORY
This doesn't seem to work. I am wondering what I need to change to get this to work.
Any help would be really appreciated, please.
I am not sure what you intend to do.
But _DIRECTORY is no field but a property maintained by the OS.
As long as the file is there, it also has the property shown in _DIRECTORY.
What do you want to achieve with clearing the _DIRECTORY?
Thanks a lot for the reply.
I want to clear the directory so that when I share the file, it does not show the directory that I am using to store this file.
Or have I got this wrong, and it does not store this info, but rather shows the directory location automatically for the individual user on their PC?
In other words, I don't need to bother clearing the directory contents.
Is this for an export action? If so you can limit that to the filename only. You can’t remove the _Directory info, as that is fixed data from the OS, not a metadata field.
That's great thanks.
It seems that I was not really understanding what the Directory field showed.
