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.

Apple Extends .Mac Deadline -- If any iTools members remain on the fence about whether to pay for .Mac, Apple is giving you a couple more weeks to decide. The special $50 upgrade price for current iTools members will be available until 14-Oct-02 instead of 30-Sep-02; on 15-Oct-02, any data still in iTools accounts which have not signed up for .Mac services will be erased. So, if you don't plan to use .Mac, you have an extra two weeks to rescue any data and inform correspondents to use a different email address. [JLC]
