How to globally change the user name that is used in file templates?

  1. Go to Tools | Templates.
  2. Scroll to the end of the Template Manager and expand 'User Configuration Properties'.
  3. Select 'User.properties' and click 'Open in Editor'.
  4. Now you can add the above and set your own value, for example:
user=DonaldDuck@disney.com

Now, whenever you have ${user} in a file template, you will find the above value generated into the file that you create using that template.

Also, follow this issue, which aims to make the above more discoverable: issue 127490.
