Set author of PDFs

timme wrote on 2010-07-08:

we would like to specify the author meta field of a PDF in order to disguise the URL that the PDF was generated from. Is there any way to set the author through the API?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Not at the moment but we can add that feature for you.

What language do you use for accessing the API?
timme wrote on 2010-07-08:
Python on Google App Engine.

We have added a new method setAuthor() to the Python API library. Please download the latest version and check it out.

Hello, I would like to be able to set the author in the PHP API.

The current configuration uses the full original URL as the author, I really don't want that.

Can you help?

- Thanks

Please, download the latest version (1.5) of the PHP client library which adds the setAuthor method.
