Incorrect title string being written during export -- v. 1.8.2

Recommended Posts

Publisher insists on using, as the title string that it embeds in both PDF and JPEG output files, the name of an .aftemplate file that was deleted from disk. But the program has stored that name string somewhere and will not let go of it.

How do I get rid of it? Otherwise I will have to run ExifTool and edit the string every time I export a document. Having the title that far off the mark just isn't acceptable.

For a PDF file, the string in question is written as the document title (ExifTool shows the tag name as simply "Title").

For a JPEG file, ExifTool shows the string being used as the value of the IPTC tag "ObjectName".

If need be I'm willing to edit the Windows registry to get rid of this thing. Please tell me it can be gotten rid of...

As I mentioned in your other topic, use the Fields panel to change/specify the title.

You got here before I could. ; -) I was headed here to correct my mistake about this. Apologies to the forum for the "misinforming" post.
