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.

C-Command Software has updated EagleFiler, its document- and data-archiving app, to version 1.5.4 (see “EagleFiler Turns a Finder Folder Into a Snippet Keeper,” 24 February 2010). According to the release notes, EagleFiler 1.5.4 includes a slew of optimizations and bug fixes, in addition to a few new features. The app can now read data in a more efficient way from several RSS readers, including NewsRack and NetNewsWire, and can import bookmarks from a variety of sources, like Safari, Delicious, Pinboard, and others. EagleFiler 1.5.4 also includes early support for the upcoming Mac OS X Lion, where the app can run in full-screen mode.
