  • How can I save time entering metadata text?

    You can create a shorthand for your metadata entry using the text replacement feature built into the macOS.
    1. Define the replacements in the System Preferences by going to the Apple menu and choosing System Preferences.
    2. Click Keyboard.
    3. On the Text tab, enter your shorthand abbreviations in the Replace column, and the full replacement text in the With column.
    4. In ACDSee, in the Properties pane, in most metadata fields, you can enter any of the shorthand text you have defined and click the replacement when it pops up. Alternatively, you can press the Down Arrow to select the replacement, and Enter to apply it. Or press the Comma key to apply it and continue entering metadata.
