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.

Last Regular TidBITS Issue of 1998

Send Article to a Friend

Last Regular TidBITS Issue of 1998 -- We're taking the final two weeks of the year off to spend with family and friends over the holiday season, so this is the last regular TidBITS issue for 1998, although we plan to publish a special holiday gift issue in a day or two. TidBITS Talk will take a two-week vacation as well, starting 18-Dec-98 and returning in the first few days of 1999 to discuss Macworld Expo in San Francisco.

Additionally, we'd like to thank our sponsors for their financial support and our many volunteer translators for their selfless work in making TidBITS available in Chinese, Dutch, French, German, and Japanese. We also extend a hearty thanks to everyone who has sent in kind words of support over the past year. This year was a time of rebuilding for the Macintosh community, and we look forward to 1999 with continued optimism. [ACE]
