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.

VideoShop 1.0 Free Offer

Send Article to a Friend

SyQuest and DiVA are offering a free full working version of DiVA's VideoShop 1.0 pre-loaded on 5.25" removable SyQuest cartridges. (You do have to buy a 44 MB or 88 MB cartridge, though.) Most SyQuest integrators are offering the deal, which ends 30-Apr-93, although it may be extended a few more weeks. Some bundling deals are also offered (drive, software, and video capture card), although they may vary. DiVA and SyQuest will provide full technical support.

VideoShop, a QuickTime-based video editor for creating and editing digital movies on a Mac, retails for $599. The cartridges also include a HyperCard edition of the VideoShop manual (you can order a hard copy if you want), a library of video and sound clips from The Image Bank CD Collection, and the SyQuest/SCSI Probe utility for mounting any cartridge.

If you are thinking about getting into multimedia and you own a SyQuest removable, this deal is hard to pass up. You can try your hands at multimedia without the large investment of camcorder, hard drives, software, etc. The software alone is worth the price of a hard drive, but you can own it for the price of a cartridge! For more info, contact your local SyQuest dealer or call SyQuest at 800/245-CART.
