Hi Alan,

it seems that the key field cannot contain spaces. So it should read:

  \pdfbackendsetinfo{key}{ Text }

Otherwise, Acrobat Reader (both latest DC in Windows and version 9.5 in
Linux) cannot open the document.

And the information is displayed in the custom tab from document
properties, not in the description tab.

Here is an image of the dialog:


Acrobat Reader version 9.5 doesn’t contain that tab and it cannot
display the field.

I hope it helps now,
