In Menu Mode:

Under Actions for Current Subdirectory, there is an option to Edit 
Catalog Information.  This is will let you set default metadata to the 
directory you are viewing.  The metadata applies to all subdirectories 
in the folder recursively unless one of the subdirectories has its own 
catalog information defined.  Make sense?  For example, you might put 
subject equal to physics on the main level and if you leave the subject 
field in all subsequent subdirectories it will be set to physics by
