Hi,

How could I change the PDF file title which shows in the "description" of document properties? I couldn't revise it there.

By the way I'm the author of it.

Thank you.

Hi,

You are using the built-in Powerpoint method - you will be able to set the document title and many other features if you use the PDFMaker which will be installed with Acrobat. This will give you an 'Acrobat' tab in Powerpoint.

Then you can set the Preferences to prompt for the PDF filename.

Hi,

If you click on the Security tab - have you set document security which would prevent changes?

Hi,

Please find below for your information.

It seems that the security which would prevent changes is ON.

Furthermore, there's no "Protect" tool to choose...

Hi,

You will need to use Acrobat Pro or Standard rather than the free Reader DC.

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC FAQs

Can I edit a PDF files using Acrobat Reader?

No. You cannot make permanent changes to text or images inside PDF files using Acrobat Reader. To edit PDF files, purchase Adobe Acrobat DC software. If you have a subscription to Adobe Acrobat DC, you can also edit PDFs from the Adobe Acrobat Reader tablet app.

Hi,

Well noted. Thank you so much for answering.

One more question below:

When I save PowerPoint to Pdf, and open with Adobe reader, the file name shows in Adobe isn't the same as in PowerPoint.

Thus Is this the same problem of using Adobe Pro or free Reader DC?

Thank you!

Thanks.
