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.

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has released Airfoil 4.5.7, a minor update to its popular network audio streaming app for the Mac. Most notably, the new version adds support for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion to the Instant On component, which helps capture both system audio and audio from already-active applications. It also fixes several bugs and memory leaks, including one that prevented AppleScript scripts using the System Audio device from working. ($25 new, free update, 11.4 MB, release notes)
