anybody have javascript code to simply add keywords to the open document from within an action? this.info.keywords adds all delimited words as a single string, so I'm looking for code to set the XMP property dc:subject with a list of words. thanks!

Example #3 in the doc.metadata entry of the Acrobat JavaScript reference provides all the code you need to properly modify the XMP.

thank you. this is helpful, but I'm not having much success in modifying this example to set the dc:subject bag array. are you aware of an example that specifically sets the keyword metadata correctly, since setting this.info.keywords does not work like I would have hoped?

thanks again.
