Hi Paul,

Another solution, which does not cause extra work each time you upgrade, would be to program a function key to output "Paul".
I haven't tried this myself but I think it should be possible to do this by modifying a gtk3 user configuration file which doesn't get clobbered by an upgrade.
See https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/GTK3
