Free BBEdit 7.0.2 Update -- Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 7.0.2, a free update for all registered owners of BBEdit 7. A major change in this release is substantially improved translation and detection of text file encodings: BBEdit now supports default encodings when opening and saving files, detects encodings in well-formed XML and HTML documents, and offers appropriate encoding support in Save As dialogs and in the status area of every document. In addition, BBEdit 7.0.2 supports Mac OS 9.1 (although Mac OS 9.2.2 is still preferred), rolls spelling dictionaries into the main application package under Mac OS X, and offers a reworked Philip bar that moves in sync with the horizontal scroll bar (since no one has a 9-inch black-and-white screen anymore). Lastly, BBEdit's AppleScript dictionary is again available to Apple's Script Editor under Mac OS 9! As usual, Bare Bones has published a complete list of fixes and changes. The BBEdit 7.0.2 update is a 12.5 MB download. [GD]
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:
- Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
- Select a default save location.
- Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
- Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
- If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.
