Changing Author Information on Front Matter

I have compiled my first novel using the Short Story template.
Using Scrivener 3 on the Mac.
I’m getting my work details showing instead of my personal details.

I have tried changing the author information using Preferences > Author Information, but it is still pulling my work information.

How do I fix this?

That information gets pulled into the project only when it is originally created.

For existing projects, find the title page in the front-matter folder in the binder and then edit the details as necessary.

New projects should harvest the data from Preferences > Author Information.

Slàinte mhòr.


That worked JoRo, that worked.


Good luck with the book.

@JoRo super helpful. Thank you.

The metadata for the output document can be defined via the “tag” pane in the right-hand panel of the File → Compile screen.
