Lightroom: Option to include Metadata from the most-selected file to images created by "Print to File" in the Print Module

I use the print module all the time to prepare collages, dyptichs, tryptichs, etcs. images for my blog. Because images printed to file from the print module don't include metatdata I always have to re-import those images back into Lightroom to add the metadata, and then re-export before uploading to the blog. I would prefer this to be done in one step from the print module.

I created a separate entry to automatically re-import the resultant file, but I would also like to add the metadata from the most selected file.

On a related note, I'd also add the option to use the image filename as the "print to file" filename when only one image is used per page. Obviously that runs into issues with multiple photos per page, but it would allow more users to make use of the Print module for adding borders and suchlike.

Great idea. For multiples files it could default to the most selected file to use as the "print to file" filename. That would make life easier!

I just got off the phone with Adobe and they say that currently there is no way to save original filename to print to file files. I agree that this should be in place and I don't understand why it isn't as it seem obvious. Hope this Hope Form gets to the right people and we finally get this added.
