     4
     5YAM will satisfy the needs of a large family, being able to handle
     6upto 16 users, who can each have their own folders and configuration
     7settings.  While starting YAM, you can say who you are and immediately
     8use your own personal setup, making programs like MultiYAM become
     9redundant.  Selecting the '''Settings/Users''' menu item brings you to the
     10Users window.
     11
     12
     13'''User name'''
     14     This is the name of the user.  It will appear in the welcome
     15     dialogue on startup, provided that at least two users are defined.
     16     The active user appears highlighted.
     17
     18     Example:  Bill Brown
     19
     20
     21'''Password'''
     22     If you fill in this field, a password requester will appear on
     23     startup if you present yourself as this user.
     24
     25
     26'''Mail directory'''
     27     This is the home directory for all user-specific files, such as
     28     folders and configuration settings.  Obviously, this directory
     29     must be different for any user in the system.
     30
     31     Example:  PROGDIR:bill
     32
     33
     34'''Use global address book'''
     35     Enable this option if the user won't be using his or her own
     36     address book.  The address book is then shared with at least
     37     the default user -- the file is kept in the program home
     38     directory and not in the user's home directory.
     39
     40
     41'''Use global glossary'''
     42     Enable this option if the user will not maintain a separate
     43     glossary but will instead share one with at least the default
     44     user.  The file is kept in the program home directory and not
     45     in this user's home directory.
     46
     47
     48'''Supervisor privileges'''
     49     Enable this option to allow the user to create or remove other
     50     users.
     51
     52
     53'''Copy configuration from current user'''
     54     If you are adding a new user, you can select this option and copy
     55     the current settings to the new user directory, thus saving the
     56     new user some tedious work setting up a whole new configuration
     57     from scratch.
     58
     59
     60'''Add user'''
     61     Adds a new user to the list.
     62
     63
     64'''Delete user'''
     65     Deletes the selected user from the list.
