When you create a new document, the “Title” field in
File > Properties > Description > Title is auto-filled with the template name. And, when you export that document as a PDF, it is the template’s title that appears in the display of the PDF as that document’s title, rather than the filename, or first words of the file (the latter of which is the MS Word default, I believe).
I don’t think the LO default (providing template title as default document property) is good design. It’s somewhat counter-intuitive, in fact, and results in generic or inappropriate display for PDFs produced with LO’s internal tools. It’s also a hassle to change manually every time you create a document.
Is there a way to set this as an option? I looked carefully through the
Tools > Options possibilities, and didn’t spot anything. Or does this need to be filed as an enhancement bug?
I’m using 22.214.171.124, btw, on flavours of Ubuntu and Mint, and occasionally also in Win XP and 7 (not that the platform matters, I think).
Thanks for any help with this!
