What document info to add?

This group allows you to choose a predefined document info preset or use a custom one. By default there are several predefined document info presets defined but you can add new or manage those by clicking on New / Manage.

A predefined document info preset can be used by multiple profiles, while Custom settings only affect the current profile.
