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.

Adobe Flash Player 13.0.0.201

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe has speedily updated the Mac version of the standalone Flash Player to version 13.0.0.201 to fix a crash that was introduced in Flash Player 13. It turns out that Flash Player 13 was crashing because it was trying to use CPU instructions that were not available on certain Macs produced between 2006 and 2008. If you’ve been affected by this bug, you should update immediately. Or, like many of us, you could uninstall Flash Player, and instead rely on the version of Flash Player bundled inside the Google Chrome Web browser (see “Isolate Adobe Flash by Using Google Chrome,” 8 February 2013). Chrome’s version of Flash doesn’t suffer from this bug. (Free, 14.9 MB, release notes)

It's notable that I learn of this fix first from TidBITs and not yet from Adobe.
I've taken the good advice and uninstalled Adobe Flash Player from all my browsers (except Chrome, where it's bundled). I'll use Chrome for those occasional instances when I need a Flash Player.
Thank you once again, TidBITs!
