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.

Typinator 6.1

Send Article to a Friend

Following its jump to version 6.0 (see “Typinator 6.0,” 17 June 2014), Ergonis has released Typinator 6.1 with a number of enhancements added to the text expansion tool. The update brings new markers that can temporarily pause Typinator for suppressing the next replacement, as well as for suppressing the current replacement (used for defining exceptions of other rules). It also adds a new set for defining exceptions for the auto-capitalize sentences rule, a function for sorting text lines (such as for sorting lines found in the clipboard), and an option to insert a delay in the middle of an expansion. In addition, Typinator 6.1 fixes an issue where some regular expressions matched internally used mark characters, a memory leak that occurred when set options were edited multiple times, and a problem that caused auto-capitalization of sentences to fail in certain cases.
