I've changed the description of the topic to be more general this time around. The prior topic was more about working in WYSIWYG mode. I'm now going to expand into other areas that may be of benefit for you.

First one up?

Quick optimization of your pdf documents.

While in Folder List View keyboard shortcut Alt + F1, right click the file name of your pdf document to optimize. Choose Properties. In the first "General" tab, there is a title box. Enter the title of your PDF document here. You should treat this as if you were optimizing a regular page title element, it's the same thing.

In the second "Summary" tab, there is a comments box. Enter a short 140-160 character description of the pdf document in there.

Just adding the title alone is sufficient for most PDF documents. You can also do this with other documents such as Word, Excel, etc.


Alt + F1
Select File
Right Click
Select Properties
General Tab
> Insert Title
Summary Tab
> Insert Comments

There is a third tab titled Workgroup. You may or may not use this depending on the management of your FrontPage Web.
