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.

I have Moneydance 2010 - registered. I downloaded MD 2011 and installed it. I am unable to register with the 2010 registration code. No information on how to register the upgrade.
The user guide is still the 2010 version - no reference to 2011. Looks like there's still work to do. I'll contact MD and see what happens.
I'm curious as to why TidBits hasn't written about iBank. There's an ad for it on your site as I type this, but a search turns up nothing.

Time, mostly, and the fact that writing about financial management software can be pretty involved. (And none of us are accountants.) But don't worry, we're looking into Quicken alternatives since things change in Lion.
