I have an issue where I'm migrating a customers assets to a new Digital Asset Management System, all the assets are PDF's. The problem is that a large majority of assets have the same DocumentID even though the files are named different and belong to different groups. What I suspect is the customer created a duplicate of one document and then just renamed it which retained the DocumentID but changed the InstanceID.
What I would like to know is if the DocumentID can be changed?
If so, how would I go about it?
Thanks. I have tried saving the XMP to my desktop, editing and then replacing the code in the PDF. I used a text editor, (UltraEdit) with no success. Even though I can change the DocumentID from my desktop it does not change when I load it back into the PDF. Sounds like some kind encryption or security issue.
