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.

Wiki Server Update 1.0

Send Article to a Friend

Apple's Wiki Server Update 1.0 (part of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server) is a minor maintenance update that addresses a handful of general reliability issues. Issues addressed include authenticating users with high-bit characters (such as accent marks) in full user names, enabling wiki group calendar access from iCal, enabling wikis and blogs to remain accessible after a migration from Leopard Server, starting wiki services after a page was modified by a user using their full name, and displaying private blogs that have been accessed by their owner. The update, whose changes are also included in the just-released 1.1 update to Snow Leopard Server 10.6.4 (delta and combo), is available via Software Update and the Apple Support Downloads page. (Free, 26.3 MB)
