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.

Skype 5.3.9.1093

Send Article to a Friend

Skype has released version 5.3.9.1093 of its popular video- and audio-telephony client for Mac OS X. As the very minor version number increase from 5.3.0.1074 suggests, this is purely a hotfix that addresses an occasional crash during video calls, as well as a problem with the Norwegian localization that can lead to the app freezing. If Skype’s built in auto-update feature doesn’t see the update, you can download from the company’s blog. (Free, 22.3 MB)

6 AM EST and it has auto-updated just fine here.
It fixes " a problem with the Norwegian localization that can lead to the app freezing."?
This IS a Tidbits joke, isn't it? Cute!

No, but it was such an amusing thought that the Norwegian localization had problems that we couldn't resist calling it out.

I suspect it's pining for the fjords.

Is there any reason to upgrade from the 2.8.0.851, or is the older interface still better?

If 2.8 is still working for you, no, not really. I suspect at some point it will stop being able to connect properly with newer versions.
