Hi,

The command-line below doesn't work whit my PDF file :

"exiftool -xmp-dc:publisher="CEA" test1.pdf

The result message is "1 image files updated" but the new metadata "CEA" is not in my file...

Could you help me ?

Thanks

(I join the pdf file)

Phil Harvey

Why do you say the new metadata is not in your file?

This is what I see in the file you sent:

Publisher is set to "CEA" as you wanted.

Also, I suggest updating your ExifTool.  The current version is 11.24.

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).

Chris

Sorry, I wasn't very clear....

Yes, I can see the value with EXIFTOOL, but I can't see it in the XMP info panel, in the pdf file. ("Publisher" is "Emetteur" in french).
(I join the mask ant a screenshot).

Thank's


Phil Harvey

Try writing the publisher with your other software, then ExifTool to see what was changed (FAQ 3).

OK Phil,
When I write the publisher tag with my application, the result of the command-line "exiftool -a -G1 -s test1.pdf is :

So, I think, it's the same result, no ?

Thank's

Phil Harvey

They look the same at this level.  What application are you using?  Could you email me both PDF files so I can reproduce this?  My email is philharvey66 at gmail.com

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).

Chris

In fact, I just write the tag with ACROBAT, in the info panels (tag "Emetteur" in french...). (see scan)

I join the Custom file Info Panels....

Thanks

Phil Harvey

I have no idea what the xmp_docs.txt and xmp_docs_fr-fr.dat files that you have posted (twice) are for.

Can you write other XMP-dc properties (such as XMP-dc:Title) with ExifTool and see that in Acrobat?

- Phil

Chris

These files allow you to enter the tags directly in ACROBAT, after you have placed them in the directory "Custom File Info Panels" from ADOBE. (see scan)

Yes, with XMP-dc:Title, it works well.

Phil Harvey

Since the standard XMP-dc:Title works, but your custom file info tag doesn't, I suggest the problem is somehow with your custom file info definitions.

Thank's Phil,
Ok ,I'll look in this way....

Chris.
