Solved: Edit PDF Properties in Autodesk Vault – Autodesk Community

I can get the properties to write in, no problem. What doesn't seem to work is editing the properties in Vault. The properties are just grayed out. Right, it won't let you change the direction but of course you can remove the mapping altogether which would let you edit the properties in vault (albeit, with the restriciton i indicated). I don't *think* that there is a way for vault to have a bi-directional mapping for PDF files unless Autodesk implemented it as a Content Provider (such that you could select Adobe PDF in the dropdown) but admittedly, I'm not certain if this is true or not. If you do happen to find out how to do it, let me know. You can edit the properties of the files in the vault, however, doing so will require that you edit the property mapping and under the Other Files provider, remove the unidrectional mapping (from vault to file). Of course, this comes at a cost because since you are removing the mapping, any subsequent files that you add to vault will not have their properties read in for those where you have removed the mapping. To the best of my knowledge, there is no way we can setup a bidirectional mapping for PDF files such that we can both read and write properties like we can for other types such as Inventor, AutoCAD and Office. I would be happy to be proven wrong ,) Hey, Ryan! I hope things are going well for you. I checked it out, and it looks like that's the rub. It won't let me change the bi-directionality. It seems to only want to write from the PDF to Vault. The pulldown won't even open to change any settings. I'm giving it a couple of tests, but it looks like the iFilter and Vault don't want to work this way.I wonder if this is 'just how the iFilters function', or if there's another iFilter for PDFs that would do it.
