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.

FileMaker Releases Two FileMaker Applications

Send Article to a Friend

FileMaker Releases Two FileMaker Applications -- FileMaker is going in a new direction with its long-standing FileMaker Pro database software. In addition to developing the database applications themselves, the company will also sell FileMaker Applications, a series of task-specific programs developed using FileMaker Pro which - unlike most custom FileMaker solutions - are unlocked to enable customization and extension by FileMaker Pro developers. Although FileMaker Applications are designed to provide instant solutions to data management tasks often overlooked or poorly managed by organizations, by requiring FileMaker Pro 6 they're also intended to spur upgrades and sales of FileMaker Pro itself.

The first two FileMaker Applications are Recruiter and Meetings. Recruiter offers tools for managing contacts and candidate data so users can quickly figure out "who knows who" and "who worked with who," along with tools for managing background information, reporting on organizational structure, email tools, plus more common contact management and reporting capabilities. Meetings offers tools for developing agendas, tracking tasks and action items, sharing meeting minutes, and automating repetitive email. Both FileMaker Applications are available online from FileMaker's online store and require the $300 FileMaker Pro 6 to run; Meetings costs $50, and Recruiter is priced at $300. [GD]
