Text mark variables - Username

I there,

It's possible add username in Text-mark variables?

I know you can manually type in whatever you want in one of the areas... I forget exactly where...

Here's a list of various Preps marks:

I didn't see username on there.

Preps doesn't really have users so I assume you are using Preps through Prinergy that does have usernames. The Prinergy text-variable $[Username] should work with Preps. And it does as I just added it to my preps job at the end of my Job Information variable mark and there it is...My Workshop username. But it will not work if you are using Preps stand alone.
