# How can I discover the author of a blendfile?

I know how to set the "Author" attribute for the blendfiles that I create, using Blender User Preferences > File. However, I have not found out how to view the author of a blendfile. How can I do this?

• I don't usually like to provide alternatives, but seeing as this feature is largely useless to the average user (and cannot provide much info), I would suggest using a Text block for author info and packing it with the Blender file. – A Wild RolandiXor Jun 5 '13 at 19:42
• @rolandixor Whenever they are useful, alternatives are great and broaden the horizon. – Haunt_House Sep 21 '13 at 7:58
