  1. I have produced some PDF documents using Affinity Designer. For information the thread about their production is https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/169391-language-independent-signs-for-art-galleries/#comment-971723 yet reading that is not necessary in relation to this thread. Some are A3 landscape format, some are Ledger landscape format. I am happy with the PDF document artwork content. I am now wanting to produce versions that include metadata. As it happens I cannot do that in Affinity Designer, so I need to use Affinity Publisher to add the metadata. I have found, in Affinity Publisher, View Studio Fields Document Information I have tried producing a test PDF document. In Adobe Reader File Properties Description The Author field from Adobe Publisher goes through fine The Subject field from Affinity Publisher goes through fine, though it is one line in Adobe Reader and one needs to go along it to read it all. The text in what I put in the Comments field in Affinity Publisher is not in the PDF document, hich may well be fine because maybe it is a way to put a comment in a .afpub file and it not be used anywhere else Somewhat curiously, at least to me at present, is that the text in what in Affinity Publisher is labelled Tags is displayed in Adobe Reader in a text area labelled as Keywords. However, from my tests I found that the text in the Affinity Publisher Tags field is displayed as ordinary text in the Keywords are text area of Adobe Reader yet with a double quote character added at the start and at the end. Does anyone know why the double quote characters are added please? It seems to me that being able to put a plain text description of the artwork in the Keywords field would be a useful way to place the metadata in the PDF document. However, as the field is called Keywords I am wondering if that would cause some problems in some way. Does anyone know about this please? Did Serif add the double quote characters or is that added by Adobe Reader please? Is my run of plain text being treated as one keyword? If one did, in different PDf document, want to add, say, three keywords, how would one do that please? In Affinity Publisher, is there any way to make the Fields panel larger please? William
