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.

Remember This! In response to my rhetorical question asking if there is anything bad about Conflict Catcher (see TidBITS-393), L. Carl Pedersen <l.carl.pedersen@dartmouth.edu> noted that it's a very bad thing that such an elaborate tool as Conflict Catcher is useful and necessary. Technology should make our lives easier, and although there's no question that technology enables us to do far more than ever before (something like TidBITS, for instance, is inconceivable without inexpensive and powerful computers, software, and communications technologies), we spend too much time on maintenance, troubleshooting, and upgrades. Those who design hardware, software, and communications systems should keep simplicity and elegance in mind at all times. [ACE]
