I would like to be able to embed the project path as a metadata element when exporting to PDF. So when I export a map in PDF format, a user can open that map in Adobe Acrobat Reader, select File / Properties, and see the path to the .aprx that created the map. 

Co-workers send me PDF maps made years ago by someone else and ask me to revise them. This idea would make it much easier to find the project that created the map.

It sounds like this idea would be the ArcGIS Pro version of this one: https://community.esri.com/ideas/2786   I just wanted to reference that older idea to provide another use case.

Well, I thought it was a good idea. I don't think an idea from 10 years ago is going to get implemented.
