I am getting a bunch of PDF files from some other source, and I need to change the PDF title via a script, i.e. the title that you can inspect via pdfinfo for example. Does texlive come with some such tool / package? Or are there other packages? I have investigated pdftk and the pdftools, but not found anything so far.

  • This is not really a tex related questions, however pdftk can indeed do what you want. Have a look at the update_info command which either take a file or stdin input. – ArTourter May 3 '12 at 10:57

    As @ArTourter said pdftk will do the job, here's a tutorial: sangonz.wordpress.com/2010/04/11/… – gcedo May 3 '12 at 11:23
  • TeX programs can produce PDF files, but not manipulate them. One way might be to import a complete PDF with \includepdf from pdfpages and set the title; but links in the included PDF will disappear. – egreg May 3 '12 at 11:27
  • I'm sorry but this is not on-topic here and therefore got closed. However, I can tell you that pdftk has an update_info option which should allow you to change the PDF title in the meta-data. – Martin Scharrer May 3 '12 at 11:57
  • Yup, ok. pdftk works and we can close this. :) – Arne May 3 '12 at 13:19
