Hi xcd.a,

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

Please try the Action Wizard tool in Acrobat to add the header to the file. For more information on Acrobat Header, please refer to the following help page: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/action-wizard-acrobat-pro.html.

Check if that works for you.

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi
