What is the function of "Embed Metadata" checkbox in the Conversion settings in the MS Word Add-in?

Resolution

When you check "Embed Metadata" in the conversion settings in the MS Word Add-in, the "author" and the "title" is set in the pdf to the same as the items shown in the properties of the Word file

When you un-check "Embed Metadata" in the conversion settings in the MS Word Add-in, the "author" is set to the system user and the "title" is set to the MS Word file name.

This is the only metadata that is included in the PDF, regardless of the settings.
