Hello Unilateral,

I am afraid that the PDF-XChange editor does not have the function to remove this information.
May I ask for clarification on your statement?

If there is sufficient need and desire for this we may consider implementing such a function, but I will need a more detailed explanation of why it is you need these fields hidden.

Hello Unilateral,

Is this an End-User Editor question or a Core API SDK one? From what I see, you are generating the document via the SDK.

Cheers,
Alex

The function of editing the pdf-producer and application fields is demanded.

I didn`t give a consent to use me as a street sign and violate my privacy. The pdf format is designed for people to exchange documents, and I have to be used as an advertisement carrier by this. The fields are malicious.

Clear it or give an option to edit it as soon as possible.

Hi Unilateral,

The location information depends on the client and where the document is stored on that client. Were you to send that document to another user, they would only see the location it is stored in on their PC, not yours.

Regarding the filename: I'm not sure that I understand your objection here. All applications display the filename of a document. If the filename contains sensitive information, you're free to change it if the document is not secured. If the document is secured and you do not have the password, then we cannot allow you to edit this.

**Edit: Just re-read your post. The producer, etc. fields also do not contain privileged information and will only be populated if done so by the application used to create the document. Most PDF readers show this info.

Thanks,
If posting files to this forum, you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded.
Thank you.

Best regards

I don`t want the producer program to be pointed in the document. How do I delete or edit the fields?

Hello Unilateral.

Unfortunately it is not possible to remove or edit this data in our software, and we currently do not plan to offer such capabilities for the foreseeable future.
There are some third party applications that you can find on the internet which are capable of modifying and removing document metadata if it is absolutely necessary, although doing so this way comes with its own set of complications.

It should be noted that many other PDF softwares, Adobe and Foxit included, also do not allow editing of these items.

Kind regards,
