(37) In System 6 you could save a PostScript text file by pressing option-f or option-k right after printing. This is built into the 7.0 LaserWriter driver as a radio button option. In System 6 you had to press option-k to get the Laser Prep header - using the System 7 LaserWriter driver the LaserPrep is always included, which can create inconveniently large files. You can make them much smaller by not printing any TrueType fonts. Also check out the utilities PS-Trimmer and Strip Fonts at your favorite shareware fishing hole.
(38) To turn off the startup page on a PostScript laser printer, look in the Utilities menu of the LaserWriter Font Utility 7.0 (located on the More Tidbits disk if you have the 800K disk set and on the Tidbits disk if you have the 1.4 MB disk set).
(39) Under System 6 command-shift-4 dumped the screen to an ImageWriter. This does not work in System 7 and cutting and pasting the FKEY resource does not work either. Instead use the shareware utility Flash-It or some other screen capture utility. Alternately use command-shift-3 to save a PICT of the screen and then print from TeachText (the System 7 version can open PICT files).
Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview
You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)
