What is this?
PDF Metadata Editor is a simple tool you can use to edit the metadata (Author, Keywors, etc.) of a PDF document.
The tools is written in Java so you need a to have Java 8 installed in order to run it. Older Java versions might work but I haven’t tested.
- Support Basic, XMP Pdf, XMP Dublin Core and XMP Rights metadata
- Unicode support, can use all languages and encodings
- Default values to pre-fill if not set in the PDF file
- Rename file on Save using predefined template
- Copy XMP to Document metadata or vice versa on Save
- Batch clear, edit and rename metadata (requires license)
- Command line edit, clear and rename (requires license)
- Export metadata to JSON or YAML (requires license)
