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.

Happy New Year everyone! Our first New Year's resolution is to clean out the nooks and crannies in our article database, summarizing topics we planned to cover but never found the room. This isn't to imply that this information isn't interesting, merely that we couldn't fit it in among all the rest of the good stuff we've included. Our apologies if these articles do not meet our usual standards for completeness - at this point we decided it was more important to publish them than to flesh them out.

Our second New Year's resolution is to be more ruthless in selecting articles. The pressures facing us are twofold. We have more information than ever before (and we must always be careful of our wrists), but we do not want to increase either the size or the frequency of our issues. Since we have a formula that works well, we're going to stick by our electronic guns. As always, we welcome comments.
