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.

Microsoft Releases Office 2004 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft Releases Office 2004 Update -- Microsoft has released yet another update to Office 2004. Version 11.2.4, a 57.5 MB download, patches a security hole in PowerPoint that could allow an attacker to overwrite your computer's memory. It also resolves a crashing bug in all Office applications involving graphics with embedded EPS data, and another that occurred with German documents that use Microsoft's German proofing tools. Two Entourage fixes complete the package: improved calendar synchronization with Exchange servers and the repair of a crash that could occur when using SSL to connect to an LDAP server.

The update is available on Microsoft's Web site as a stand-alone updater, or by using the Help > Check for Updates command in any Office application. This update incorporates all the previous Office 2004 updates, including the new Spotlight and Sync Services support in Entourage that were added in the 11.2.3 update in March. [JK]
