Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

Poll Preview: They Come in Colors -- Next week we'll be looking at Canvas 7, the latest version of Deneba's popular Swiss Army knife of graphics programs. Other than Canvas, in which Contributing Editor Matt Neuburg has long been interested, we tend not to cover graphics programs much since most of us we live in a more text-oriented world. So tell us, what are the graphics programs you use most often to edit and create graphics? We've selected some big names for the poll answers, but we also recognize that there are many other possible options, so we've started a thread in TidBITS Talk where you can tell us what other programs you use and why you like them.
