I’ve done a search for this subject and have come up with the suggestion to create a new contact with the Scrivener: Use Me prompt in the notes and it did not work.
I never allowed Scrivener to use my contacts in the first place but my real name has been placed in the author field of the meta data anyway. I’ve checked and unchecked the box that allows Scrivener to use my contacts and I’ve created the new contact with the word “none” in the name field but my real name is still listed as the author when I create a new novel document to test it out.
The problem for me has been when I have needed to compile in different formats. If I put the new author name in the metadata and I compile a mobi file but then compile a pdf later, my author name will only be changed in the first compile. And if I forget to check then my real name is included in the pdf document - or whichever document format I compile in later.
It’s aggravating to have to make sure and check it every time I want to compile. I’d much rather have that space be left blank in case I forget to check it.
Has anyone had this experience and found a fix for it?
