Ignore the little spoof/sketch at the beginning, that was to troll my subs . This is a tutorial for changing the author or title name (and more) of the new editable books! You're going to need a program called NBTedit by copyboy to do this! Watch the video to find out how to do it.
Thanks to copyboy for allowing me to use his program NBTedit!
It doesn't take me to my .minecraft, and I can't access it because AppData doesn't appear. Help!
Hopefully you've figured this out by now, but in case you haven't, simply type "%appdata%" without the quotation marks into the address bar. This will redirect you to your Roaming folder, and your .minecraft folder should be in there.
Also, thanks for this, AMCLP. It was really bugging me, how to change the author. Never thought of using NBTEdit/Explorer. What's also neat is that you can give the book a title longer than the game allows you to, and it displays just fine.
