When I open a PDF File, the name of the file is usually the name that shows in the window up on the LHS of the screen. But yesterday I opened a file and the name that showed was a different one. Does anyone know why and how I can change it or why this happened?
A PDF can be configured to show either the file name or the document title in the title bar. You can check by selecting: File > Properties > Initial View > Window Options > Show > File Name | Document Title
Thank you so much.
When I open File> Properties
There is no Initial View option. Please help, what do I do?
I am on Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
Just solved it. Here's the sequence:
Edit > Preferences > Documents > check box Always use filename as document title
Thank you so much for this. Will it reflect only for the new file we create? Because my existing file name is not chaged yet even when I did this step.
The option in the preferences is for all documents.
I can't see Adobe Acrobat in the screenshot.
This is happening when I open with google chrome the pdf. The name in the left top isn't changing.
Open the document in Adobe Acrobat.
Actually when I am sending the pdf file to someone eg: Resume, they are right clicking it and opening with chrome. So when they are opening, it is showing a different name to them as I showed you the pic in my previous chat.
Report the issue to the developers of the Chrome PDF plugin. It's not related to Adobe.
That works for Adobe Acrobat Reader but for Acrobat Pro I find no check box <Always use filename as document title>
Is ther a solution for Acrobat Pro? Other than editing the title manually to equal file name.
The option is available in Adobe Acrobat DC.
Acrobat doesn't have a global setting for this. It will show whatever is defined under the file's Initial View setting (which it can also edit, of course):
However, if the Title field is empty it will show the file-name, even if set to show the Title by default.
Edit: It might have been added in later versions, though.
A PDF can be configured to show either the file name or the document title in the title bar. You can open your pdf file Notepad++ After you can Go search > click Find. open one popup box. u can write a "Title". after click find you can find your PDF title name. after u can change the name after Save the file.
This is a very dangerous way of editing a PDF file. You can very easily cause it to become corrupted by doing that.
