Wilcom Hatch is what I use to create my design. The design files that I create are what I need to change.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Software technician: George Sibiya, Research and Development replied 7 months ago

Wilcom Hatch wont install on my machine.

So, the property you would like to change is one seen when you right-click on the file and then properties like here?

Please try SubInACL from Microsoft.

I have just tested it. You can change ownership of a file to a specific System user

You may test that while I look for one to change an Author as opposed to Owner if they should differ in your case.

I finally had time to take a loo at this. So far, I have not found and utility that will work on HUS files. Adobe does not support this format. I reached out to some colleagues and they pretty much confirmed this as well. Sorry I don't have a better answer.

Software technician: Richard Freese, building add ons replied 6 months ago

Hi. Thanks for the reminder. I have three other JA cases I am working along with my issues at work. I have researched the issue. Windows 10, while far better than win 8 and 8.1 still does not make a pimple on the but of win 7 when it comes to the kinds of things you are used to. Renaming a file works like before but the functionality you are trying to use, did not get migrated over. I am still researching it though. I will get back to you as soon as I have an answer.

it turns out that there are a lot of users out there with the same issue you are encountering. All worked well in Win 7 but not in Win 10. Why dos Microsoft do this crap? removing useful functionality. I am still trying to find something. And I think I am getting close.

You have to get the pro version which is only $19.95. Here is the link: http://www.foryoursoft.com/buyfpe.htm?REFER=FPF3.7.5.1

Give it a try.

I believe the pro version will do what you want. I tried a couple of times with different kinds of files and it would stop me and say "You need the pro version do do this. It allowed you to add fields like "Author" which is one you one you wanted. I did a lot of research to get this info. I would appreciate at least a five start rating for my effort. I will get paid and have more opportunity to earn more for my work. It would be appreciated sir.
