When I created my bitwig account for the first time, I chose a username X during registration

Then I changed this username X to a username Y inside my account (online)

But the problem is : when saving a Preset inside bigwig, by default, I get the username X instead of username Y ... Is there a workaround so I can change the username ?

Difficult, but possible. You might try with a binary(!) text replacer that can act upon multiple files. This is rather easy if you're on Linux - its got all tools for that onboard. Be careful and make backups if you're working on important presets.

I think we have something on our wishlist to make this easier but that is probably not coming in the short term.

Thank you for your answer,

My concern is not to change the CREATOR name after the fact for saved presets.

My concern is : When I press SAVE button, there is a creator name (pre-filled) which is my old username

So every time I want to save a new preset, I have to erase the old username and replace it by typing my new username in the Creator Field.

OK I de-authorize it on my machine, and then re-authorized

Problem solved
