      Description

      When merging multiple PDFs into one compound document via PDFMergerUtility, meta data like title, author, subject cannot be set but seem to be taken from one of the input documents. This is usually not the desired behaviour because as a user I have no direct influence on the meta data. As a user I would like to explicitly set or at least overwrite certain meta data for the destination document. Currently I can only set the destination stream or file name, but not the meta data.
