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.

"Take Control of Customizing Panther" in Japanese -- Our industrious Japanese translators have done it again! We're pleased to announce the release of the Japanese translation of Matt Neuburg's "Take Control of Customizing Panther," which is now available for $7.50. We're once again offering this version free to Japanese speakers who have already purchased the English version of Matt's ebook. To download your copy, click the Check for Updates button on the first page of "Take Control of Customizing Panther" and click the download link in the Web page that appears. The free download link will work through 01-Jun-04. If you don't have the current 1.2 version of "Take Control of Customizing Panther," your copy won't have the Check for Updates button, so you'll need to upgrade to 1.2 with the instructions we sent on 10-Apr-04. If you have trouble, send email to Tonya at <tc-comments@tidbits.com>. [ACE]
