08:28 am - Changing Passwords in xjournal
Needing to update the password for xjournal purposes and have forgotten the procedure. Will continue searching this community's archives in the meantime. Using the current build on 10.6.8, FYI...

Been a LONG time since I've actively used Xjournal but...

* Open Preferences.
* Click on "Set up accounts" button on the General tab which should open the Accounts window.
* Double-click on the name of the account you want to change which should drop down a sheet which username and password.
* Change password and click OK.

Not sure if this is correct but it'd be my guess.

Which doesn't ever seem to work with my installation.

Okay this should definitely work. Maybe.

* Close Xjournal if you have it open.
* Open Keychain Access.
* Search for "xjournal". You might get more than one result. You are looking for the one that says "application password".
* Double-click on that xjournal application password result.
* Tick the "Show password" box to see what password it has stored. You will probably be prompted for your password.
* Change the password. Click OK.
* Reopen Xjournal and see if it will let you log in.

Give it a shot. I'll have my fingers crossed for you. :)
