Changing name you registered with

Hi, new user to this forum!

When I purchased and registered with Scrivener a couple years back, I wasn’t married. Now that I’m married and will be using my married name for my books, I can’t seem to find how to change my name with Scrivener…or at least when I’m compiling the drafts…am I able to change the name? I’d like to see my married name reflected in Meta-Data and such.

Help! Thank you!

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the whole marriage thing!

Scrivener just takes your details from your OS infomation.
In the Contacts App, in the Card menu there will be an option to “Go To My Card”
You can go in there and you can change your details so your whole computer is aware of your newly married and loved up status. :smiley:

Alternatively, you can set up a new card in your address book (eg with your author pen name and contact information if that is different from your real name) and tell Scrivener to use that instead by placing the text “(Scrivener:UseMe)” somewhere in the notes field for that contact… See §4.2.4 (pg. 24; ¶2) of the user manual for more details.
