Give a new Publisher file the name "A". Save it. Close it. Open file "A" and save it as "B". Open "Fields" in saved document "B" and under "Document Information" the "Title" field will read "A", which is what the name of what the file WAS, not what it IS now. There is a title-filename mismatch that persists. Even if you close the app down and start afresh, the mismatch persists. See attachment.

Yes I know, I can manually change the Title field but a) that's not productive and b) it doesn't stick. The title field in "B" reverts to the first document's filename. I could hard wire it, but that defeats the purpose of a field doesn't it? The field seem unable to update itself automatically and there is no manual key for doing so.

Win 64, AP 1.7.1.404.

"Document Title" and 'File name" is not the same.

Oh? Then why does the file name come up in the Title field and stick there?

If Create New document, then your "File name" is undefined (untitled), and your "Document Title" is undefined (empty), see on Fields.
If Save this document (SaveAs, because your file name is still undefined), and "Document Title" is also undefined, then "Document Title" is setting according "File name" (that there was at least something in the field).

If "Document Title" is defined, thus, of course, the "Document Title" will not change when file saved (Save or SaveAs).
Try - create New document, insert anything to "Document Title", and Save document. In "Document Title" is anything or "File name"? :-)

I don't use titles. What I need is a field that will pick up the filename of the current document and will change if the doc is saved-as under a new name.

I think you can find what you're looking for in the Fields Studio: it is Filename under the Document Statistics section.

Brilliant! Thank you. I missed it under Document Statistics.  :$
