Avoid Naming Pear Note Files

If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:

  1. Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
  2. Select a default save location.
  3. Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
  4. Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
  5. If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.

If you have a bunch of older Take Control ebooks the sale is a great way to update to new editions efficiently and with excellent savings. If you have an older ebook (so long as it's not one of the very oldest Panther titles), you can click Check for Updates on the cover -page 1 - to investigate if there's a new edition. There also might be a free minor update or other update info available via Check for Updates.
