Description Tomas Pecina 2010-08-20 13:55:32 UTC
Description of problem:
simple-scan stores the (temporary) filename as Title of a PDF document. This is rather annoying because such information is normally never needed. If the Title field was omitted, viewers would display the (actual) filename, which is much more useful.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Scan a document.
2. Save it to PDF.
3. Open it with evince (or any other viewer).
Actual results:
Temp filename is displayed as Title.

Expected results:
Actual filename is displayed (ie the Title field in the PDF header is empty).
