    does any one know why if you open a PDF in safari on a Mac and go towards the bottom a set of icons appear, one to decrease, one to increase size, one to download directly into your downloads folder.

    What is that set of icons called??

    Secondly, when I click on that link to download it to my documents folder it doesn't save all the metadata attached to that pdf. For example the info tab doesn't contain any "Where from info"

    Now if I go to the safari menu on top and select "save as" (same PDF file) and save it to my downloads folder is saves all the metadata info including the "where from info"

    Don't know what it's called, no. The reason you don't get the metadata same as File > Save As is because Safari adds that data when you save from the menu - same as it would if you saved any other webpage. It also strips away the other metadata, like Content Creator - Authors - Version - etc. etc.

    Using the button downloads the original PDF unaltered.
