Allow to permanently disable the export of Meta-Information while exporting a PDF from Powerpoint
When people in my company export PPTs as PDF Files the default setting is to include non printable information, in this case the "document's properties" and the "Document structure tags for accessibility" boxes are checked.
The result is, that if you open the final PDF-file, the title is shown as "Power Point Presentation", instead of the file name in the upper left corner.
Please include the option to permanently uncheck these boxes. Currently it has to be manually unchecked every time a PDF is exported and is a constant source of errors, since the exported PDF-file can only be altered using a different software (like Acrobat Pro).

If that is actually happening, it's a bug. Tagging the structure for accessibility should make the text layer of the PDF fully available. It sounds like you're getting an image-only PDF, which is what is often produced when people print to PDF.
If an image-only PDF (no text layer, so you can't select and copy the text from the PDF) is actually what that process gives you, then Microsoft has a major bug to fix.
Currently when I export a Powerpoint 2016 document to pdf, the default option has 'Document structure tags for accessibility' ticked. This for some reason, makes most of the text unable to be highlighted and copied back to text. My suggestion is to remove the default checkbox for structure tags. This is really annoying because it seems some university lecturers export their powerpoints as PDFs, and I can't highlight and copy the text for my own notes.
