PDF file name does not match the title displayed - need to edit metadata?

I have a button that links to an uploaded PDF. When users open the file in their computer browser, the "title" does not match the "file name." I screenshot the document properties and you can see they don't match. I want the file name I specified to be displayed instead of "Microsoft Word - Food 2.23.22.docx."  (I don't see the title displayed when I click the link with my phone, only computer.)

I think this may be related to Metadata but I'm not sure where to edit this for a button's uploaded file? Advice much appreciated!

This isn't something that you can change on Squarespace. You should edit the PDF title on your computer before you upload the file to Squarespace.

Thanks for confirming that there's no way to edit a PDF's metadata in Squarespace. I found a way to do it in Adobe Acrobat (File > Properties > Description).

Hi there,


I actually have the same issue where the name is not displaying correctly and I have renamed it and it's still there. As the PDF was forwarded to me would the issue be on the original document?
