PDF won't change title name or author


When I bring up settings and make changes, the title and author info defaults to the very first document I made. It won't change. Is there something I'm missing maybe to reset this?

Working from Ubuntu Edgy in OO 2.0 word processing

Are you trying to change a PDF document--as implied by the title? OOo will write a PDF, but I don't think it will edit one.

In OO, click on File-Properties-Description, and then you can add a title, subject, or keyword that will be saved in a PDF file. I can't tell you how to specify the author (save as a keyword) as I don't know how you got the author into a PDF to start with! OO has never done that for me :-(

I just found it. The title, subject, ect. is, as in your quote. But the Author takes the name of the owner at the time OO is intalled, if a name was filled in at that time. This was tricky because I either couldn't find or overlooked it in the help tut. This can be changed in OO by clicking on Tools-Options-User data.
