PDF Metadata
« on: May 28, 2019, 02:17:43 am »
My PDFs created with Scribus dont have metadata details such as title, author, date created etc.  What do I have to do when exporting a PDF in order to enter these items?
My first 'puter was a 286,
My first dtp was Aldus Pagemaker,
My first printer was a Little Squirt,
My first car was a motorbike.

hi ged

insert your metadata under 'file' → 'document setup' → 'document information'.

Ah good.  :)  Do I have to re-export my pdfs from Scribus, or can they have the metadata inserted as they are?

as i don't know the tools to insert metadata into an existing .pdf file, i would export them again…
