Another request to PLEASE provide a global preference / setting in the Reader,preferences to have the Reader use the file name all the time.
When opening PDF's created by users OTHER than myself, many times they have not set a meaningful title for the initial Word or other document. However, 99.9999% of all users will set a unique filename. Unique filenames are how users have tracked files since the dawn of the PC age.....I'm curious as to why Adobe thought it would be a better idea to use meta data that may not be correct. And further why there isn't a setting to use the tried and true filename method.
Help us please!!!!!
