When I open a PDF from our web site, I notice the browser tab displays the name of the Adobe InDesign indd file, but sometimes it displays wrong info that is not related to the filename. It displays info related to a different indd file. I don't see the information in the indd metadata.

This is FF 61.0.2 (64 bit)

Where is the browser tab getting its info from?

Chosen solution

Found it. This information is being taken from Adobe Acrobat PDF > File > Properties.

Now we need to find out how the information is getting into that place on export.

I don't use InDesign, but when I use Microsoft Word, some application-specific metadata may carry over through PDFMaker. If you print through Distiller, on the other hand, it depends on the information the application sends to printer drivers.
