Acrobat Preserves Original File Name

I use Google Sheets to create the time sheet I use to pay my employees. I save the Google sheet as a PDF then send it for an e-signature as part of the payment process. I rename the file denoting the employee name and the pay period ending date. I have been doing it this way for over 4 years.

 

Recent Acrobat has started preserving the original file name 'PAYROLL SHEETS - Google Sheets' when a document is opened. It appears as the renamed file in 'Recent Files', it appears with the new file name in explorer, any way you could open the file it appears correctly named, until you open it and the old file name is there. It makes it very difficult to tyrack which employee a sheet was sent for signature to.

 

Anyone else experiencing this bug or have a fix?

 

Thank you!

If I'm understanding you correctly, it could be this:  PDFs have a file name and a document title.  Renaming the file does not change the title.  There is a setting under Edit>Preferences>Documents "Always use file name as document title".  If this box is NOT checked the name in the window frame will be the document title, instead of the file name - if - the Window Options setting in the initial view tab of the document properties is set to Document Title instead of File Name.

Correction:  The fourth sentence should say "If this box is NOT checked".  Anyone know if there's a way to edit my reply after posting instead of replying to it?
