I need to print the filename to my pdf (in the header or footer).

I'm using Adobe Reader, but i can also use Foxit pdf reader or anyother free pdf reader.

Is it possible to do this?

if you're willing to use the command line and install ghostscript and pdftk, the related Print PDF file with file path in footer has usable answers. – matt wilkie Feb 4 '13 at 20:40

Yes, you can use Adobe Reader by writing a filename in notes:

  1. Add a Sticky note
  2. Write a filename
  3. Go to Comments and then to the option icon
  4. Go to Comments preferences
  5. Mark "Print notes and pop-ups".

I'm using portuguese written Adobe Reader, so it maybe not be exactly like an english one.

To the late googlers, I made a program that will do this for free, sourcecode included:

I have no experience with Foxit, however I can confirm this capability does not exist in Adobe Reader.

It is very simple in Adobe Acrobat, if you can access that software. Tools->Header and Footer->Add Header and footer.

if you are willing to use a commercial application:

  1. Go to the Get More Editor
  2. Click "Insert text with parameters"
  3. Add "Print job name"
