Problem with SharePoint metadata (People Picker) in Adobe Reader X. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have a problem related metadata that is in SharePoint 2010 when I try to upload a PDF from Adobe Reader X (Online site). I have a few mandatory fields such as; Document Owner, Document Type, Date, etc.. 
    When I save the PDF to a document library, so fetches Adobe metadata from the designated document library. I am forced to fill in my field, but when I get to document owner field the people picker don´t work. So I can not complete the transfer/upload of the document.

    Any ideas or solutions?!?!

  • Hi Anders,

    What did you mean for “upload a PDF from Adobe Reader X (Online site)”? Whether you mean that the SharePoint 2010 site is an online site.

    Per my knowledge, when you upload document into SharePoint, the metadata of the documents cannot upload to SharePoint. If you are using a third solution or party tool, I suggest you ask the third solution or party tool support for help.

    In addition, I am not an Adobe Reader expert, I suggest you ask the Adobe Reader support for help.

    I hope this helps.
