Adam Engst Speaking at MUG ONE on 04-Oct-05 -- For folks in upstate New York, I'll be speaking at the MUG ONE Macintosh user group meeting in Oneonta, NY on Tuesday, 04-Oct-05 at 7:30 PM at SUNY Oneonta. Initially, I thought the MUG ONE folks would be bored with learning more about iPhoto, given that I've talked to them about iPhoto several times in the past few years, so my main presentation will be about PDF. Whether you're just annoyed at PDF reading tools or perplexed at how to make a decent PDF for distribution to others, I'll be distilling our experience with the PDF-based Take Control ebooks into this session. But, since it turns out that MUG ONE can't get enough of iPhoto, I'll also be sharing some of my favorite iPhoto 5 tips and tricks, and answering questions about this latest version of iPhoto. [ACE]
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:
- Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
- Select a default save location.
- Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
- Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
- If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.
