Title: Write XMP-dc
Post by: Chris on January 15, 2019, 07:10:02 AM
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)

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

This is what I see in the file you sent:

Code: [Select]

Publisher is set to "CEA" as you wanted.

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

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

Try writing the publisher with your other software, then ExifTool to see what was changed (FAQ 3 (http://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/faq.html#Q3)).

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 ?

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 phil at owl.phy.queensu.ca

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

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?

Title: Re: Write XMP-dc
Post by: Chris on January 16, 2019, 09:53:35 AM
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.
Title: Re: Write XMP-dc
Post by: Phil Harvey on January 16, 2019, 10:00:00 AM
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.
