Disable Passwords

Postby dcbsr » Fri Aug 09, 2019 9:21 am

Many years ago I enabled a system user password. Now, the software is located such that I no longer need to have a password. I have read the help file but must be missing something. Any ideas?

Log in as System Admin, then go to File > Preferences > Passwords & Permissions. Click the Disable Password Protection option. It will ask you to enter the password again to confirm.

I thought my userid was System Admin, it was not. I logged in as System Admin and fixed the problem. Thanks

That can confuse some people. System Admin is a totally separate account ID. You can delegate some of those permissions, but not all of them.
