Exiftool: "Author keeps the "" - quotes

Post by Peter2 »

I use exiftool with this code:

Code: Select all

exiftool.exe -Author="I am the test author" "Test.pdf"
The result in PDF is that the "author is the only data which keeps it quotes:
"I am the test author"
Is this correct? Is there a way to avoid this?

Hello,
FYI: I'm not a specialist but I have tried your ExifTool command line under my system (linux: Ubuntu 8.04 + Exiftool V7.43 perl + My default PDF reader: Evince v2.22.2 ) and I have not "your quotes problems" even for the Author item:

Code: Select all

exiftool -Author="I am the test author" "test.pdf"
The result in the PDF via Evince, is without quotes:
I am the test author

Maybe a Windows probelm? I just looked at a PDF, made from Word with PDF-Creator, where the "author in PDF" was taken from "author in Word": In Word no quotes, but in PDF :?: :?:
