Can you open a PDF and tell when it was created and by whom?

Open the file with Create Editable Pdf Reader DC and go to File/Properties. A panel indicating document title, author, creation/modification date, and other properties is displayed. However, the information may not reflect the original author of the text or even the file name, se the example below. And, the information contained in the File/Properties depends on how the file was created, i.e. which pdf creator app was used. In the example below, the document contents is ZOOM Quick Reference Guide and the file name is document.pdf. However, the document properties says something about Title being Microsoft Teams …, probably because the document was created using the MS Teams Quick Guide template. Also, the creation and modification date does not reflect the date the file was created, but when it was downloaded and printed.

Create PDF: All You Need to Know

The file does contain the original author name and the document file name. However, that file name does not match the file name and creation date of the PDF created by Microsoft's Teams app. It also does not match the names of the other PDF created by Teams which are created in the .pdf format. If I use one of the PDF creation apps like Adobe Illustrator or Adobe InDesign, there's more accurate information as the creation date of the Adobe PDF creation works for that, but not for the Microsoft Teams PDF creation. I have even installed the Microsoft Teams app on my iPad so that I can see what PDF I created and see the original file name and date of creation, but there can be issues too. I suspect the Adobe PDF creation is being created by Teams' app from the Adobe file, or maybe the.
