in a message on facebook, somebody suggested that writer when first saving a document should copy a feature of m$ word: compose automatically the document name using the first vtwo words of the document itself, instead of naming it something like 'document without name'. it would be comfortable if you have to save multiple documents in one directory....
Questions: How do you determine what a document's content is by looking at the first two words? Why would people save a file without giving it a name that makes sense to the author? What would happen if more than one text document has the same beginning two words? No, I think the best thing is to name each file when it is first opened by Writer.


I always hated M$ to decide things for me. They usually got the name for the document to be something that did not work for me. I think they picked it from the first line of text.

I tend to make a file name be a short sentence of under 30 to 40 characters that describe the document or image. M$ could not do that easily.
