Why can't I delete the information in the Title field for the File Info? I
have templates I created and I can't get rid of an old document title from
this field in the template files. Yes, I update this field when I create a
new document, but it's a bloody nuisance that it has bad information in it
and I can't get rid of it.

I even exported everything to MIF, but I can't find that information in the
MIF files.

IIRC once you stick something in that File Info screen, you're stuck with it forever.

We update that information all the time. It gets consumed by an
auto-publication script and used to publish the final PDF to the right
location.
We're using FM 2015, unstructured.

That'd be nice. But we do it all manually: choose the file name, choose the
location, all the rest. I just don't understand why someone thought
carrying an old title over to everything ever created once you used that
field for the first time was a good idea.

It's been a bit of a week. Already. Oy.

Thanks for the information, all, even if it's not what I hoped for.

And it's editable in 2017 as well, and was in the 2019 beta.

If you need to juggle this info frequently, I and John both use a nifty
script of Rick's that propagates all File Info fields ina book and in all
the book's component chapter files based on a static config file and/or the
contents of FM variables such as Book Title.

Well. That's STUPID.

Also frustrating. Whose bright idea was that?

Hi Lin,

Can you send me the template off list so I can take a look at it? Thanks.

Lin, I have stuff in the template also.
But when generating a pdf from a book I get the info from the book file:
In the book file I select the book and set the values in File > File Info
Then only this informatin goes into the PDF although the individual chapters have the
'standard stuff' in the file information.
