Is there a way to set up Illustrator/Photoshop/InDesign CS5 with default file information? What I want to do is set it so that I am the author of all of my work by default without having to change it in the "file information" panel each time.

Thanks in advance.

Set up a template, fill in the common info and then save the template, then just pick the template for future use.


I don't believe there's a way to set metadata by default since each file is expected to be different.

Thanks, I think I'll do that for a few different things :) – Eoin Oct 23 '13 at 15:32
