A short but very useful article today. Have you created that perfect document that can be reused again and again? But it would all be ruined if you or a co-worker were to accidentally copy over or delete it. The best example of this is letterhead on a mac, but this technique will work with any document.
[dropcap]1[/dropcap]Right click on your document and select “get info” (alternatively, select the document and press ‘command+i’).
[dropcap]2[/dropcap]Check the box that says ‘Stationary pad’.
That’s it, you’re done! Now anytime that you or a co-worker opens the file, it will automatically create a copy of that document and save it in the same location with ” copy” appended to the end of the name.
Want a bit more protection on your document? Check the ‘Locked’ checkbox then as well. This will make sure that you can’t accidentally delete the document. It will warn you and force authentication both when you attempt to throw it away and attempt to empty the trash.
