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.

PWS now Web for One

PWS now Web for One -- ResNova has renamed its personal Web server mentioned in TidBITS-337 from PWS to Web for One (apparently due to trademark issues), and made a new pre-release version available. Based on my early impressions, Web for One may be the easiest way to put up a few Web pages using a Mac Web server, although it currently requires a dedicated IP number. ResNova is investigating solutions to that problem for future versions. (Individuals who might want a personal Web server very well may not have a dedicated IP number - most Internet providers provide dynamic IP numbers for dialup connections.) [ACE]
