General Document Properties

The General document properties tab displays basic information about the document including Title, Author, Subject, and Keywords that were set by the document's creator. Additional file details such as the producer, created date, modified date, file size, page size, and file metadata are also displayed on this page. Only the Title, Author, Author Title, Subject, Writer and Keywords can be edited (unless the Document Security has been set)

Note: These fields are not required information in a PDF and so may be left blank.
