Doesn’t work.

Been looking for something like this for a while now, so thanks to the devs for venturing into this space. Unfortunately, it doesn’t actually work. We edited several PDF documents on the Mac using this app and then transferred the files over to Windows. When we re-examined the meta-data properties of the various documents, we found that nothing was actually changed and all the original tags were still there. Whatever properties this tool alters are not the real metadata being examined by the operating system. For those that gave his app a 5-star rating, run some tests of your own between platforms and see what results you get. The app doesn’t actually change anything.

Developer Response ,

I would like to apologize for any inconvenience that you encountered while using the PDF Attributes.
We conducted a test with the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (2017.012.20093) for Windows, and everything works fine. All attributes edited using PDF Attributes was shown in the Reader DC.
Please contact us directly by e-mail and we will try to help you with this issue.

Does exactly what I wanted

I was looking for an app to change the metadata on some PDFs and some of the others were giving me trouble. This did the trick. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Handy app for editing metadata

I have a certain popular scanner that includes a certain OCR program that will only operate on PDFs created by the scanner. I’ve used this handy tool to edit the Content Creator tag so that the OCR app will then accept any PDF. Works great!
