When viewing PDF documents in certain browsers, such as Chrome, you may have observed a title appearing in the top-left corner. This title is inherited from the original document when it was created. If you use the same Word document as a template for multiple PDFs, it's crucial to update the title before converting the Word document into a PDF.
Please note: The Title is different from the file Name, as you can have a title that is different from the file name.
The only way to update the title of a PDF is by editing it within the document properties and subsequently re-uploading it to the website.
Steps to Update the Title:
1. Adobe Acrobat Reader
- Open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
- Navigate to File > Properties to view and edit the added title.
If you encounter difficulties editing the title in Adobe Reader:
2. Edit in Word
- Right-click the PDF file, choose 'Open with,' select 'Word,' and click OK:
Note: If you are unable to find Word on this list then you can click on 'Choose another app' option:
If it is not in this list you can click on 'More apps':
- In the Word document, go to File > Info:
- Click on the Properties dropdown on the right.
- Choose 'Advanced Properties':
- Update the title as needed:
- Finally, save the document as a PDF and re-upload it to the website.
Important: We would recommend that you rename the file so that it has a different name to the original file to prevent cashing.
Ensuring accurate and relevant titles not only enhances the visitor experience but also maintains consistency across your PDF documents. We would recommend that you take a moment to review and update titles to reflect the content accurately.
