Avoid Naming Pear Note Files

If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:

  1. Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
  2. Select a default save location.
  3. Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
  4. Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
  5. If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.

Impossible to link to Google account with iPad mini. Tappable confirmation button completely cropped away. Developer alerted. Film at 11.  2013-08-19 17:16
Brief short between the headphones here. That cropped window was scrollable. It just did not "look" scrollable. Big Duh!

People should check out Boxer, an alternative mail client built with To Dos in mind for iOS. It works with any mail service, IMAP, iCloud, Exchange etc. Works in a similar fashion to Mailbox, swipe to perform various actions, with a focus on clearing your email Inbox to zero and having a set of emails designated as actionable. No iPad version as of yet, but promised. I have invites if people so wish, @TommyW on Twitter might be best.
