Author name not correct on compile

I’m trying to compile my project however Scrivener keeps pulling through my macbook username as the author name. I’ve set author name within the general tab of preferences however I cannot seem to get that to come out in compile.

I deleted the contact on my mac that had my macbook username in it, hoping that would force it to be overridden by the manually entered scrivener preferences with no luck.

Anyone know how I fix this?

Have you checked the Metadata tab in the compile overview area? That’s where this information would be stored, it isn’t pulled from anywhere if you have something typed in there (and it may have been typed in for you when the project was created some time ago).
