Add document information in Acrobat 7

August 16, 2006


One handy feature of Acrobat 7 is that it allows users to add 'Document Information' (AKA metadata) such as title, subject, author name and a selection of keywords to PDF documents for simpler categorization and archival. Better yet, adding document metadata is a quick and easy way to take the pain out of tracking down your PDF documents the next time you need them.

Here's how it's done:

  1. Select File > Document Properties > 'Description' Tab.
  2. Enter your 'Document Information' into the 'Description' fields and click 'OK'.
