Poll Preview: Buy and Buy -- In days of yore, Macworld Expo was the place to go for amazing deals on Macintosh hardware. Sales of Macs and peripherals at the show no longer catch the attention they once did, and the changing fortunes of local Macintosh dealers, computer superstores, mail order catalogs, and online retailers have all affected where we shop. So where do you prefer to shop for Macintosh-related hardware, both new and used? Register your vote on our home page today! [ACE]
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.
