Description wcmozart 2016-10-29 05:01:28 UTC
I generate a PDF file from Writer. I open the pdf file for viewing [or it is automatically opened]. The File name is NOT displayed in the document TAB ; instead the name of the template file used in creating the document is displayed in the document TAB ; I have to go into the PDF file's 'Document Properties', 'Document Info' panel and RESET the document's TITLE to get the proper file name to display in the PDF tab

Steps to Reproduce:
1.produce a file in Writer using a template, and export to pdf
2.open pdf in a pdf-viewer
3.look at the name in the document's tab which is displayed in the pdf viewer
4. this should be the same as the documents file name
5 the name appearing is the name of the template used for the file

Actual Results:  
see above

Expected Results:
the name in the documents tab should be the documents file name 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
this is an extremely annoying bug since it makes it impossible to have more than one pdf file open for viewing in any pdf viewer since ALL OPEN FILES will have the SAME name in the document TAB .. this error is also present in OpenOffice [has the same code base, almost] .. it necessitates going in and changing the title of EVERY PDF FILE one produces

Hi, this is by design - it displays the document property Title (File > Properties..)
