[EP-tech] Extract data from PDF files

Hello fellow EPrinters,

I’ve been playing with the « Extract data » function to extract metadata 
from PDF files, and I’m not having much success. I’ve tried with different 
PDF files, both from official publishers or internally-created files. I’ve 
never been able to extract more than the title, and only from a few files.

Did any of you have more success with this function? Is there a way to 
improve extraction? Or to disable this function altogether if it just doesn’t 

Thank you!
