LO (x64) on Windows 10 Home Edition.

When I export a document directly as PDF (click the PDF button on the Standard toolbar) and then opening the generated PDF file in a PDF viewer (PDF XChange Editor in my case) I always see the name of my default template in the tab instead of the document title.

When looking to the document properties in my PDF viewer, I see the filename is correct but the document title is always the name of my default UK template:

Is there any setting to make sure the document title is the same as the file name? Am I missing some setting in LO Writer?

Best, --Geert

Did you try to enter a title in LibreOffice with File>Properties in the tab "Discription"?

Before exporting a document to PDF, go to FilePropertiesDescription(tab), and remove the text in Title.

When you export, the document title shown in the PDF viewer is the document name.

If you don't want to do the same every time you export a document, open the template and remove its Title.
