Metadata (document properties) from Microsoft documents
When I used to create PDFs from Word documents in Windows 7, the PDF would automatically inherit the Title, Subject, and Author properties.
In Windows 10/Acrobat Pro 17 this is no longer the case. All of these fields are blank.
I don't know if this is a change in Acrobat or Word (Office 365), but it's a major pain to set these properties manually every time.
Yes. File > Save As > PDF workflow invokes Microsoft’s converter.
Great to hear that your problem is now solved using Acrobat’s Save as Adobe PDF.
Thanks so muuh needed for my baby so thankful

I think i solved it:
My normal way of creating a PDF from Word was F-12 followed by "Save As" then picking PDF from the list.
Yesterday I tried File -> Save as ADOBE PDF and that worked - all properties transferred.
It seems that the first way invokes a different converter (Microsoft's?) that does not transfer properties.
