Display Names

If you have a display name and wish to change it (or if you wish to set one for the first time), you will first need to have display anmes enabled in PreferencesGeneral: View Display Names. With that set, you will get a wrench icon on your profile, to the right of your user name. Click that to open the Change Display Name window.
