Having problems with PDF Metadata from FM13.


I am creating a PDF of a picture and writing in first name last name to the meta fields. I have done about ever field with the same data.


I place these files in InDesign and non of the metadata is readable.


If I open the file in Acrobat I see the information but if I make any change and save the file, the next time I look all the metadata from FM is gone.


Is it writing it in a way that the newer programs don't understand? I do have the current versions of InDesign and Acrobat.

Is it just a thing with FM 13 and is no longer a problem in the newer versions?


This is a once a year project that I get ask to help with about every 3 years so I forget how I did it and each year find new ways of doing it. I like this way if the Metadata can be read by InDesign we can use the caption feature to speed the process up.
