I lost my password. How do I reset my password?
Most lost user passwords and category passwords can be reset.
You will be sent a password reset code and instructions for how to use it.
NOTE: Users who have activated Extended Security cannot have their passwords reset. That's one of the features of Extended Security.
How can I customize the look of The Journal (change the skin)?
There are 170+ skins for you to choose from, which you can easily change as your mood or style takes you.
Click on the View menu and choose "Change Skin/Theme..."
You can also change the skin--or turn off skinning--of The Journal in User Preferences (on the User menu), on the "Global" tab. Note that if you turn skinning off (or back on), that you will need to close and restart The Journal.
How do I customize the toolbars?
Right-click on the menu or toolbar that you want to customize, and choose Customize. This will open up a form which contains all available menu and toolbar commands.
Bring up the Commands tab.
Click on the commands you want and drag-and-drop them on the menu or toolbar where you want them to appear.
In addition, all toolbars, as well as the main menu, can be undocked and be floating at any position on your screen. Mouse over the far left of each toolbar until the four directional cursor appears, then left-click and drag the toolbar to the position you’d prefer.
