Meta Data for Dimension for Print files
MetaData for Adobe Print Programs like Acrobat, Illustrator and InDesign.
Currently Bridge displays Pixel Dimensions for Web developers only.
It would be astronomically better if we could see Inches and or centimetres (depending on what the file was saved as)
you could make it even better still when programs like illustrator have more than 1 work art board. Just like previewing each art board in the preview pane, we should be able to see the dimensions change for each as well.
Moreover, if a poster is 24" x 36" the metadata should provide still the image contained info like 200 dpi, 4800px x 7200px, (this is NICE to know) but more importantly, it should say 24" x 36" as the size of the art board, first and foremost.

I agree. I can see the pixel dimensions of a photo file, so why not InDesign page dimensions?

Manfred, I agree.
DPI would also be a useful tool bit of information.
What's amazing is there are 11 categories in the metadata, possibly 100 different tags.
The only ones that 99% of us use are the ones inside File Properties.
This is Adobe's domain, why can't they just make a new Adobe Category. This should be editable so that we can pick and choose what bits of info is important to us. and to display only the info we want for the program file that is selected.
It's important to know how many dpi a image has. I always have to open Photoshop to check the dpi adjustment. The size at 72dpi as shown makes no sence.
I've been asking for this for about six years! I don't understand why this is so hard. They may need to talk to the other teams to request they include this in the actual metadata, but even if that's not possible I refuse to believe they couldn't find a workaround to get this vital info into Bridge.
