My download folder tends to contain dozens of papers I intend to read. Unfortunately the all have meaningless names like
smith2008.pdf, and just as uninformative title pages once thumbnailed, so I need to open every one of them just to figure out which is which.
I don't expect miracles, but is there any way OS X could be at least a bit more helpful here? Even something as simple as page count in thumbnail would be quite helpful, and if it managed to extract some metadata or text from title page, that would be just awesome.
As far as I understand, OS X Finder delegates thumbnail generation to whichever program handles particular filetype, so it should be possible to use something else than Preview.app for PDF thumbnails (or PDFs altogether), right?
So is there any OS X option or third party program which does what I want?
