Metadata Windows

On Windows, metadata keys can be used as variables in text. Metadata refers to additional information about the content of a document, beyond the actual text, and helps describe or organize the document

The metadata will be automatically substituted for Export and in Preview. One of the best uses of metadata would be to build correspondence templates.

Writer supports metadata at the very top of your document, followed by an empty line. Metadata must be separated from the rest of the document by three dashes (top and bottom).

You can then use the metadata in the text by putting it in [brackets] and adding a % sign.
