Copy Existing Filename to 'Save As' Field

While many utilities provide file naming automation, they're mostly overkill for those cases when you need to make small variations in file content while ensuring the documents group together in a "by name" list.

In the Save As dialog, the default name is the current document name. You can quickly change this to match any existing file.

1. Make the list of files the active element.

2. Click on a grayed-out filename, which momentarily turns black.

3. The Save As field now contains the filename you just clicked.

You can modify the name (adding, say, "version 3") or overwrite that existing file you clicked.

Snapz Pro X 2.2.3

Send Article to a Friend

Snapz Pro X, the popular screenshot and video capture utility from Ambrosia Software, has been upgraded to version 2.2.3. The update addresses two crashing bugs. One, limited to newer MacBooks, occurred during object selection, and the other occurred for folks using mirrored monitors while attempting to make captures. The updated version of the software also automatically stops capturing video before the movie fills up your hard drive. ($69 new, free update, 10.8 MB)

What makes this a "quiet" upgrade? Did they have ninjas post the announcement to their news page?

Heh. I saw the announcement only via the application's update mechanism, went to the product page, and couldn't find any other release notes. And when I did a Google search for "Snapz Pro X release notes" I got some very old news items. Apparently, just clicking the News tab never occurred to me, so I thought it was a "quiet" upgrade. :-) Now fixed.
