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.

Remember? Not Forgotten

Send Article to a Friend

Remember? Not Forgotten -- Dave Warker's Remember?, a superbly simple calendar and reminder application that got its start as a desk accessory, has at last migrated to Mac OS X with version 4. Although Remember? doesn't show banners in its calendar for multi-day events, its superb and original interface and flexible reminders make it a welcome alternative to iCal, and at $20 shareware, it's a bargain.
