Sequels Rule! Reuse File Names in the Mac’s Save Dialog

Home/Mac Tips/Sequels Rule! Reuse File Names in the Mac’s Save Dialog

If you frequently create files whose names vary from those of other files in the same folder by only a date, sequence number, or the like, you can ensure regularized file naming and save effort with this trick. When saving your file, click a grayed-out filename in the Save dialog’s list. That causes macOS to auto-fill the clicked name in the Save As field, where you can tweak it rather than typing a new name from scratch.
