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.

Keynote 1.0.1 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Keynote 1.0.1 Update -- Apple released Keynote 1.0.1 via Software Update, saying that the new version brings support for Japanese, French, German, Dutch, Italian, and Spanish to the presentation software. However, I was also able to confirm with Apple that Keynote 1.0.1 fixes a few unspecified bugs, making it a worthwhile download even for those who need only the English support. A few notes: on my iBook, which has relatively little free disk space, I was warned that Keynote works best with 1 GB of free disk space; although the Keynote box does make that clear as well, it came as a surprise to me. Also, Keynote must be installed on your startup volume. Keynote 1.0.1 is a 9 MB download. [ACE]
