TVMUG Tips Box

MACINTOSH:

You can make a quick template out of file that you use frequently.

For instance:

I and several other people write up and send out to each other what we have eaten every day, a Food Journal, to keep ourselves honest and on track on our diets.

I listed my meals in a document, partially filled in the list with foods I eat every day, and named the file "Nightlies."

I clicked on the file Nightlies to select it, went up under "File" on the menu bar, down to "Get Info" (command-I).

When the Info box opened up, I checked "Stationary File" under "General" at the top of the window. I closed the window.

Now every night when I click on "Nightlies," my application opens up a copy of the file and the original remains intact.
