PDF and metadata – hot tips!

30 Sep 2008 | | No Comment

As you’re probably aware — when it comes to PDF, metadata is often added and edited during creation time from applications such as Microsoft Word and other office-related applications.

It can also be modified from within a PDF editing application by way of the Document Properties (Ctrl-D from within Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat).

But metadata in itself isn’t a useful tool — you’ve got to make some intelligent choices in order to reap the benefits.  Michael Cartwright – CEO of Solid Documents, has some useful tips titled, “Metadata Best Practices” in his recent article, Using Metadata to Enhance your PDF Files, at Planet PDF. 

He says:

  • Minimise keyword ambiguity by using clear and carefully chosen words.
  • Ensure that the metadata is consistent across all of your documents.
  • Prevent unwanted disclosure by carefully checking metadata prior to distributing.
