    Change author name {design.author}

    Boudewijn

      With the placeholder {design.author} the result shown in my border is `superuser'.

      Where can I change that name?

          Hi,

           

          The author of a design is the user who created the design. When you start Vesys2.0 you have to login - this defines what user you are. The initial user you create at installation time is like the administrator and is called 'superuser'. You can create new users from the Tools menu (Edit Users).

           

          Cheers,

          Simon

            Hi,

             

            I am logged in with user name `system' and I have created a second user (`BdB')


            See image:

            But I cannot create a password for the new user, and I cannot login with that user name.

            How to do that?

              Hi,

               

              Sorry, I should have explained a bit further.

               

              VeSys2.0 uses single user sign-on. This means that you are automatically signed-in to VeSys using your OS login name (eg Windows login). You should create a VeSys user with the same name as your OS login name (including domain if appropriate). Then, when you launch VeSys you will be automatically signed-in as that user.

               

              Cheers,

              Simon

                Hi Simon,

                 

                Quite a lot of companies I have worked have usernames that are not meaningful for example User: John Doe could have a login/username of jd3 so does this mean that the drawings would display jd3?  Would there be a way to set an alias or something up so that the drawing could actually display something more meaningful than the username?

                  You could try adding the design authors name as a property on the design and then using that property as the placeholder.

                   

                  i.e Property-> designer->Dave

                  Placeholder-> {design.designer}

                    Also note, with "single sign on" for VeSys 2.0 you must define the username including the domain used to log into your PC.  For example, "nzughaid" does not work for me but "MGC\nzughaid" does.

                     

                    Thanks,

                    Nuri

                      A simple alternative is to edit the border and change the {design.author} tag to (for example) {design.OurAuthor}. Save that, and add the property OurAuthor to the design, entering the name you wish to appear in the border. Then update the border, and the value of the OurAuthor property will be displayed. In fact OurAuthor could be any property name, and you can also do the same with {diagram.YourDiagramProperty} (where YourDiagramProperty is the name of a property on a diagram).

                        Thanks, that works. I have created place holder {diagram.designer}, and added that property to the diagram.

                         

                        And adding an extra user with my Windows login name, makes me login to Vesys 2.0 directly after restarting.

                          I'm using CHS 2010.2 (we're about to go to Capital 2012.1), and the ANNOTATION for design release and DRCs doesn't use the right user name. The CHECK_RESULTS template is: "Verified by {USER} on {DATE}." The {USER} is pulling from the "Login Name" field in Capital User. For our company that is jdnet/xxnnnnnn. The issue is that it shows as:

                          Verified by JDNET

                          xnnnnn on MONTH N, YEAR N:NN:NN XM

                           

                          This means the placeholder is not working properly with the "\". as it iserts a carriage return and removes a letter.

                           

                          What else can I use for the template in place of {USER}? I tried {design.modifiedby} but that generated a data packet and didn't work. Ideally, I'd like to use the "Full Name" field from Capital User as it is meaningful as well as alpha-only.

                           

                          Also, I have a couple designs where the revisions do not show AUTHOR. When I use {design.author}, it returns "null" on the border.

                              Hi,

                              You can find out your domain by typing "set" into a CMD window (DOS or Command Window).  All environment variables will get listed including USERDOMAIN.

                              Thanks,

                              Nuri
