Apple Releases iSync 1.3 -- Hot on the heels of iSync 1.2.1's debut earlier this month, Apple has released iSync 1.3 for Mac OS X 10.2.5 and higher, adding the capability to synchronize data with new phones such as the Bluetooth-enabled Sony Ericsson P900 and T630, as well as the Nokia 3650 and N-Gage smart phones. The 5.5 MB update is available via Software Update or Apple's iSync Web page. Palm OS handheld device users must install the iSync 1.2 Palm Conduit separately (which hasn't changed since the release of iSync 1.21). It's an 892K download available via a link on the iSync download page. [GD]
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.
