I am starting to populate different data in DT3, and one of the things that I have always wanted to automate is OCR of screenshots which I take using an app called SnapNDrag.
This software allows dragging files out of the archive, and keeps the created and modified date in the exported PNG file to the exact time the screenshot was taken.
In DT3 I have created a smart rule to convert the PNG into PDF while performing OCR, and the results are great.
The only issue I have is that the new PDF file completely “forgets“ the created date of the original file, and treats the file as a brand new one, with the same created and modified dates as those of the OCR process.
I know, technically speaking the PDF file has just been created, but I hate to be losing the original creation date on the new file.
Short of having this feature implemented in a future release, is there a way to overcome this issue maybe with a script? The issue was also mentioned in this old thread:
