Nice interface -- robust features. Want to play a bit before I register -- but very favorable first impression. Only negative -- is the confusing use (meaning) of check boxes when editing some file attributes. Check boxes son't seem to make a difference either way. Vertical Eye has been posting some nice product -- and deserves support.

When you say checkboxes do you mean the column of checkboxes to the left of the attribute labels or the ones only associated with certain attributes located on the right side? Please email me. contact@verticaleye.net
