past content in document properties

for publishing reasons, I have to adapt the properties of the PDFs I make (fill in the correct authors, title, subject, keywords). Often there is a lot of text to fill in. I used to be able to copy this content from Word and than past it in the document properties, but pasting is no longer possible, which means I have the type it all myself.

is there any solution to restore this so I can paste the content again instead of having to type it?

It should still be possible. However, you might be trying to paste characters which are not allowed, and then it doesn't work at all. I suggest you try copying some very simple text, preferably not from Word but from a plain-text editor (like Notepad) and see if that works. If so, then the issue is with the text you were trying to copy originally.

Another issue could be the length of the text you're trying to paste. There might be a limit to it, and if you exceed it it might not paste anything at all...

Just out of curiosity, were you able to narrow it down to a specific character?

I do not really understand what you mean. But I copied the text (which is in Arial 10) from my Word file, pasted into Notepad (it changed to font Consolas) and recopied it from there to paste it in my Adobe Document properties.

the length of the text was not the issue (it's max 1 rule per topic in the properties), but probably the font (although Arial is available in my font styles in Adobe).

OK, I'm guessing it's some kind of encoding issue, then...
