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.

Audio Hijack Pro 2.10.7

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has released Audio Hijack Pro 2.10.7, which fixes a crash that would occur if the source application was quit while audio was being captured. The app should also now avoid crashes caused by large artwork. Plus, the update ensures that the Add to iTunes as Bookmarkable script works as advertised, works around an issue with iTunes versions 11.0.0 and 11.0.1 that would prevent some AIFF files from being read, improves the way WAV tags are written, and corrects an issue with where Audio Hijack Pro would trigger the discrete graphics processing mode in some laptops. Finally, overall audio capture reliability has been improved, and the Instant On component is updated to version 6.0.3 to fix several issues (including one related to the Amarra iTunes plug-in). ($32 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.6 MB, release notes)
