Set the Default Author For Files and Collections
How do I set the default author for new SnapGene files and collections?
The first time you run and activate SnapGene, your "Group Name" will be set as the default author.
Click SnapGene → Preferences (macOS) or Edit → Preferences (Windows or Linux), and select "Files" in the sidebar.
Use the drop-down menu to choose from a list of previously used author names, or type the author name into the "Author" field.
To avoid populating new files and collections with a default author, leave this field blank.
When you create a new file or collection, the default entry will be present in the "Author" field.
