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.

SpamSieve 2.9.2

Send Article to a Friend

C-Command Software has released SpamSieve 2.9.2, which improves compatibility with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and updates some graphics for the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display. The latest release of the spam-filtering software also updates its recommended condition for Apple Mail rules to Every Message from Message Type Is Mail, and your rules will be auto-updated when you next open Mail in 10.7 Lion. Additionally, the release provides a workaround for a bug that prevented the app from analyzing some message attachments properly, reverts to Growl SDK 1.2.3 to prevent high CPU usage and crashes, improves reporting of unexpected errors and script errors from Apple Mail, and updates several sections of the manual. ($30 new, free update, 10 MB, release notes)
