Referencer ignores PDF metadata ?

Hi all,

i was surprised noticing Referencer doesn't use PDF metadata,
that one can easily dump using these two linux commands, for example :

pdfinfo paper.pdf
pdftk paper.pdf dump_data

Is this functionality in development ? Did i miss something ?

Thanks in advance,

Adrien

Re: Referencer ignores PDF metadata ?

In my experience, hardly any PDFs in the wild have useful metadata.  Author is frequently set to the name of the program that generated the PDF.

Re: Referencer ignores PDF metadata ?

Too bad these informations aren't taken into account, especially when 
information fields remain empty after the Referencer lookup.

Not to mention that the special PDF metadata 'Producer' exists to store 
this program name.
