For those of us just catching up, can someone explain how to see the metadata? I guess this is more of a PDF question, but while I have some experts' attention...

Thank you,

My vote would be to leave the point-and-click as the default and put a
mention of how to publish a PDF in the Learning Manual, with any
necessary warnings.  In Frescobaldi, I use this feature all the time
and there is an easy way to publish PDFs without point-and-click.  I
didn't know about the absolute path names in the metadata, but that
makes sense.  Thanks for pointing that out.
