Thanks for the feedback. I will update to the latest version and run some tests again.

mtxrun does not list the custom attributes unlike the others. From our (limited) experience, mutool / poppler / exiftool all excel in different areas. Dealing with different tools and keeping them upto date is something we have internalized.

We did observe that mutool did not give errors with version 1.0.4 but others did. In the ConTeXt development workflow, are there any tests with such external tools (to possibly catch regression issues)?

We have experienced (reasonable) success with tools like diff-pdf to catch regression in our workflow.

Thank you as always!

best regards,

hard to say without files but indeed updating might help

btw, there is (kind of old but still ok):

mtxrun --script pdf --info filename.pdf
