Hi there,

I know, this has been probably addressed hundreds of times in the past, and every time I update my 
installation of Open/Neo/LibreOffice, I tend to check whether something has changed with respect to 
the meta-data editing and the author field. I am also aware of solutions and discussion like the 
one here:

But, it would be of great help to be able to set the author field via File > Properties > 
Description. I am not the only one who uses LibreOffice for more than just the creation of own 
single-authored documents, but for collaborative writing and editing of joint papers or books with 
multiple authors, and also for the editing of documents others have created, maybe even in other 
file formats that are converted to ODF.  Changing the author setting after creating initial 
ODF-documents is not easy or straightforward. It would be incredible valuable to have an author 
field in File > Properties > Description, it would be of even more help to have and editor field.  
Maybe one day the meta information handling and interface of ODF-documents in LibreOffice could be 
redesigned to be more consistent with some concept like Dublin Core.

There might be a plugin that allows for more detailed and accurate meta-information handling and 
document property editing.  I would be grateful for hints.
