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.

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Preview: Putting the "I" in Internet -- We hear a great deal about how the Internet is changing the face of commerce and publishing and all sorts of important professional and technical pursuits. But what about our personal lives? Tonya has been off being a mother for a couple years now, and she relates below how she's used the Internet to learn a great deal about parenting, which is, not surprisingly, a highly complex topic with lots of information and opinions related to every decision. So for this week, we'd like to ask, "In your personal life, to what extent do you find the Internet a worthwhile source for information, community, learning, or support?" Please do register your opinion on our home page today - I think the results will be quite interesting. [ACE]
