Symantec has released a free version 5.01 patch for English and International English versions of Norton AntiVirus for Macintosh 5.0. The 5.01 update addresses serious disk corruption problems using Norton AntiVirus 5.0 on HFS "standard format" disks under Mac OS 8.1. (See "Norton AntiVirus Damaging to Mac OS 8.1 Disks" in TidBITS-434.) According to Symantec, version 5.01 corrects problems where files created in active SafeZones and then deleted would be reported as missing by disk repair utilities. The update is a 550K download.
Copy Existing Filename to 'Save As' Field
While many utilities provide file naming automation, they're mostly overkill for those cases when you need to make small variations in file content while ensuring the documents group together in a "by name" list.
In the Save As dialog, the default name is the current document name. You can quickly change this to match any existing file.
1. Make the list of files the active element.
2. Click on a grayed-out filename, which momentarily turns black.
3. The Save As field now contains the filename you just clicked.
You can modify the name (adding, say, "version 3") or overwrite that existing file you clicked.
