Document title transfer from MS Word plug-in
In the PDF Maker plug-in for MS Office, add additional controls in the PDF Preference settings to make accessible PDFs:
Set the Display Title options to a drop-down menu with the choices of Document Title or File Name.
Thanks for your feature request. We have added it in our backlog which will be prioritized based on other items. We will keep you posted with the progress.
Tanvi: added it to your backlog? Are all of us to assume it will never happen now that Acrobat Pro XI is EOL?
This is so typical of Adobe's Microsoft-Dictator attitude. Why do we have to beg you for years to fix something that should have been in the first release.
The document title is required by ADA standards to display. Whatever people may find more convenient is nice but we need to be ADA compliant.
I'm just here to endorse Sarah's comment below. PLEASE display the file name and not the title. and give us the option to choose this as a default setting.
PLEASE make it so I can have my adobe use the FILE NAME for each pdf I open, not the TITLE. As it is, I have to go into Properties every time I open a pdf, and change to file name. What a waste of time. Please make it so there is a way to have that be the default. Please!

This has been driving me nuts for a long time and now my customers are complaining. At the minimum, the default should be changed to show the actual file name.
We don't have this problem when we open it in BLUE BEAM!
Also, I don't know where Adobe gets the title because it is not the same as the word doc either.

I entirely agree with Anonymous 01/02/2020. The title bar option should be a global preference available to a person who only had Adobe reader and should not be locked at the document level. The option to display Title, Filename, Filename - Title, or Title Filename would be very helpful.
Here's an idea. Allow the user to GLOBALLY set the title bar to either "Document Title" OR "File Name" OR BOTH (separate the file name and document title with a hyphen or vertical bar or some other delimiter) and override the document setting. I find Document Titles usually stupid or uninformative AND totally useless in getting back to the PDF I want when I have multiple documents open. Please put this option in ALL Adobe PDF reading/editing/creating products!!
Please add this feature, immensely helpful especially when comparing similar documents. I have version 2019.021.20049 of Acrobat Reader DC and there is NO Initial View tab so can't modify Name/Title even on an as needed basis.
Only just recently ran in to this problem, but it is a real problem. I had no idea how much I relied on the file name on the tab until it quit working for me.

Every day, millions of PDFs are made from Word that require accessibility (most governments worldwide have accessibility requirements).
This is a priority requirement that will help countless people work more efficiently, as well as help 40% of the world's population that benefits from accessible documents.
Adobe has built this option into InDesign's PDF export utility, so please add it to PDF Maker for MS Office.

Here are the steps to set the file name/Tile on the top of the Tab.
1. Open the PDF
2. Hit CTRL+D on win / CMD+D on mac
3. Goto initial view tab
4. In window option sub-header select File Name/Title in the Show option
Let me know if you need any-further info.
