I am using PlanetPress to deliver documents in to SharePoint for a workflow using the SharePoint Plugin. Naturally, document metadata (custom defined in PP design) is so very important at the time of upload to SharePoint. This works brilliantly in direct documents.

The trouble starts when I need to use the metadata on documents with Capture fields. Metadata is not available as a part of the document on 'get capture document'. So all metadata created in the Create Capture Fields & print process is lost on the PGC process and I need to find alternative mechanism to recreate the metadata (by creating another design with PDF file as input) or save and load metadata in next process. Both these alternatives are not very attractive though I am forced to use them as a work around at this point of time.

Can any one help me with a better option to deal with custom metadata on capture documents? Thanks in advance for your help.
