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.

DiskWarrior 4 Adds Intel Compatibility

Send Article to a Friend

Alsoft has released DiskWarrior 4, the long-awaited upgrade to their essential disk-repair utility. DiskWarrior locates and repairs disk directory information, which can bring back to life an otherwise unusable partition which has no physical faults and no other data corruption. (DiskWarrior scored highly in David Shayer's "Shootout at the Disk Repair Corral" article, 2003-11-24, which compared major disk repair applications.) DiskWarrior 4 adds compatibility with Intel-based Macs, repairs file permissions, identifies corrupted preference files, and repairs Attribute B-trees and Access Control Lists under Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. The utility requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later. DiskWarrior 4 costs $100; upgrades from previous versions cost $50, plus $9 for shipping the installation disc. (There is no downloadable version available for the upgrade.)
