    usernames

      When downloading version 14, many people forget to change their username.  It defaults to first initial_last name.  I want people to change it to first name last name.  Can the username from the download page be changed permanently after the download?  This interferes with sorts and such...Thank You.

          yes, this is under edit > preferences on PC and the FileMaker Pro > preferences menu on mac. You'll see an option for user name to use the system name or a custom name.

            While you can certainly set it manually, that reveals a problem with using Get ( UserName ): The user can change it.  

             

            You should probably use Get ( AccountName ) as part of your security setup to prevent users from spoofing other users' entries.
