Hi Leigh,

First, a few questions: What version of Windows? 32-bit or 64-bit? What version of PowerPoint? 32-bit or 64-bit?

Second, I don't know why Acrobat X is giving that error, other than saying that it's getting a bit long in the tooth.

Third, I suggest another approach to creating a PDF: do a File>Save As in PowerPoint and select PDF from the drop-down:

powerpoint save as PDF

Hi Joe,

Thanks for your suggestions.

I am now using File>Save As in PowerPoint and select PDF from the drop-down.

That works fine, no errors.

But can you please help me change the Title that is used in the PDF file?

Here are the PDF Properties:

Hi Leigh,
I'm glad that worked fine for you with no errors. You should be able to change the Title (and the Author, Subject, and Keywords) in Acrobat X, as follows:

File
Properties
Description

Change the field(s) in that dialog, click OK, then File>Save.

If Acrobat X can't handle that file, the excellent (free!) PDF-XChange Editor probably can, via File>Document Properties, where you'll get this dialog in the Description category:

leigh pdfxc metadata
Change the Document Title (and other metadata, if you want), then click OK and do a File>Save. The free PDF-XChange Editor also has some other great features, as I show in these five-minute EE video Micro Tutorials:

Thanks, Joe, for all your help.

By the way, I upgraded Acrobat to the latest version and there was no problem creating the PDF.
