Why can't I change project lead?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to change the project lead via the /roles page.  I click on the little pencil next to our current project lead and it brings up the Edit Project Lead dialog.

I type in my name and it says "The user you have specified as project lead does not exist." It doesn't do a user search as it does when you assign a task to someone.

I have administrator privileges to this project so I should be able to change this, yes?

I'm not sure why it doesn't search, but try putting in your login ID instead of your name.  The problem isn't that you can't change it, but that it doesn't know which user you want.

Hey Nic, Thanks for your response. This got it working. Thanks o' bunch! Andrew.
