    How do I remove metadata from an InDesign file before exporting to pdf?

      Hi everyone,

       

      I'm trying to figure out a way to remove metadata straight from my InDesign file, before I export it to pdf. The size of the pdf needs to be as small as possible because it's sent to subscribers via a channel that takes longer to send it out the bigger the file is.

       

      I know I can do that in Acrobat (PDF optimizer), and it does significantly reduce the size of the pdf, but it's an extra step in the process, and I'd like to eliminate it. Is there a script that would automatically remove the metadata from the file?

       

      Thank you,
