Hi there,

I am trying to work out how to change my user ID when working in a solo ArchiCAD file. Specifically, I'm wanting to change the field shown for the "Issued By" section of the issue details.

At the moment, I can't work out where the name its getting has come from. I'm trying to integrate the automatic Revision History object into my projects, and would really like it to just show my initials instead of "Chris - Work."

Ideally would like to find an automatic way of doing it.

Thanks in advance.

Pretty sure it gets it from your computer login. That is the only place I can think of it getting it for me anyway... Should make a wish for it if impacts you much.

I'd go into "Scheme" and add some custom data. Such as a custom field for the name.

yeap, that is the Windows Profile name which cannot be changed.
We created a custom field which is then showed on the change management table on the master layout (on each plan).
works fine...
