Netscape Finds Director -- Netscape Communications Corp. announced last week that it plans to integrate Shockwave into future versions its Netscape Navigator Web client. Shockwave is playback technology for Macromedia's Director, a popular multimedia authoring package. The idea is that as bandwidth to homes and offices increases, you'll be able to transparently play back multimedia projects developed in Director live over the Internet, regardless of the platform of the host computer. Well, hey, it can't be much slower than Director from your hard disk, right? [GD]
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.
