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.

Third Party and Vendor Directories

Send Article to a Friend

Third Party and Vendor Directories -- Apple Developer Services recently released the Third Party Products Web Database, a series of Web pages that contain short descriptions of products, along with live links and/or email addresses for vendors. The listing can be viewed either by category or alphabetically, and though it isn't yet comprehensive, it seems off to a good start. Of course, the ultimate vendor listing has been and remains at Elliotte Harold's Well-Connected Mac, which now lists over 1,300 Mac-related vendors. [GD]
