I have already searched in the forum, but have not found what I was looking for.

My Question:
Is it possible to set the following PDF properties during an export?

  • Document Author
  • Document title

If so, how?

 

In the following picture you see the desired result.
My Title and A. Author should be filled by affinity designer.

Affinity doesn't have those options at the moment, so you would have to create those after export in a third-party app. :(

While you’re waiting, treat yourself to a copy of the excellent (and free!) utility BeCyPDFMetaEdit.

Well... Still no chance to set PDF properties during an export, right? :(

it can't be much work. I'm a little disappointed, I don't think I'm the only one who needs it.

hopeful regards.....

There is no connection between Serif's Plus products for Windows & its Affinity products for Mac, Windows, & iPadOS other than that they are made by the same company. They use entirely different code bases.

That said, Affinity Photo (not Designer) now has the ability to edit & save several metadata fields, including Title & Author.

Can you please provide a screenshot showing which menu you can edit/delete the metadata fields in Affinity Photo?   Which version of Affinity Photo?

The attached screenshot is from 1.8.3.641 (Windows). If the panel is not visible, make it visible from View -> Studio. Use the dropdown for more areas. You can make your edits in File, IPTC (image), IPTC (contact) and Rights.

It is the same for the Mac version.

The popup menu shown set to "File" also has menu items for editing IPTC (Image), IPTC(Content), & Rights metadata. The EXIF, Details, & Raw Data menu items display metadata but not as editable fields.

EDIT: Sorry about duplicating the info @Joachim_L already mentioned about the dropdown menu. I got distracted & did not read all of that post before replying. ☹️
