    Hi Bill,

    In your Export Scheme you can define a PDF title, Author, Subject, and Keywords:

    I assume you would need to have additional settings here to add more properties to the overall PDF (e.g. for the copyright information), is that correct?

    Exactly. I already set the four basic ones either in an export scheme or in the template itself. I am wanting to access the other settings so the template can set the copyright info in the PDF properties.

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for the further details.

    I've created a feature request to be able to add specific PDF properties via the template: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/EXP-1146

    Is it possible to set those export settings in a page? I have several different manuals with the same export template - but they all have different titles, keywords,... I would like to set the keywords for each export individual for example on the first page with a macro. Is this possible?

    Hi Urs,

    Thanks for your question - currently it's not possible to fill this metadata dynamically based on page content. You need to change this manually for each export.

    If I understand your requirements correctly, you'd need to define this metadata via placeholders?

    We have an open improvement request in our Jira System, see https://k15t.jira.com/browse/EXP-2136. and plan to have a closer look at this from a conceptual point of view soon.

    It would be great if you could further elaborate your requirements as a comment on the improvement (e.g. which placeholders would you like to define). To comment, please feel free to sign up at https://k15t.jira.com/secure/Signup!default.jspa. You'll then also receive notifications for every status update.

    Best,
    Nils

    Hi Nils

    I was thinking more of the page properties listed in the root page. So I could define the PDF metadata (title, author, keywords,..) for each manual and don't have to type them in each time before exporting.

    Hi Urs,

    So your requirement for the metadata field would be to make it work with page properties placeholders?

    Best,

    Hi Nils

    Yes, that's one possibility I though. So I can define different keywords for the different manuals and don't have to copy them each time before exporting.
