Additional Metadata

Post by standish-001 » Thu Aug 29, 2019 3:39 am

Need to add metadata to files when saving.

Using Word, at save I'm offered

Author, Tag, Title, Subject, Manager, Company and Category.
2019-08-29_11-35-08-904.png
(5.76 KiB) Not downloaded yet
All of these can be displayed in File Explorer.

Converting files to PDF from Word, the PDFs lose their

Company

and

Category

values.

Going into

File > Document Properties in PDF X-Change Editor one is offered additional metadata in the fields of:

Author Title, Description Writer, Copyright Notice and Copyright URL
2019-08-29_11-12-55-839.png
aa

Of these, only

Description can be displayed in File Explorer.

And, neither converting files from Word, nor saving the files directly in PDF X-Change Editor shows values that can be seen in file explorer.

Comments can be further added to Word files from File explorer. But, these also do not get preserved when saved as a PDF. Nor is there any Comments access when saving the PDF files directly.

Other than

Name, Author, Title & Tags

What metadata can be preserved / edited using PDF X-Change editor?

Thanks!
