How do I insert an author name?

In Microsoft Word, for instance, there is a “Document Properties” dialog, where you can establish who the author is. The nice thing about this is that the software can fill in the author name in every location in which it makes sense for this to appear. Is there such a dialog in Scrivener?


Check out the “Project Properties” tab, in the project’s meta-data settings, via the Project/Project Meta-Data… menu command. The panel is documented in §10.3 (pg. 96) of the user manual PDF, and the placeholder tags that can be used to fill in your name (among other things) are listed in Appendix D.

Got it! Thanks.
