Web Receipts Overwriting PDFs

/ 13 February 2007

My dad and I found a helpful hint on “Mac OS X Hints” that explains that the built-in workflow for the “Web Receipts” folder silently overwrites PDFs when it places them into the folder. The article describes in detail how to fix this little issue, basically you need to add a step to the workflow that adds the date to the front of the PDF’s name. I just can’t believe how obnoxious Apple was to have made such a helpful feature impossible to use unless you make this little system hack to stop your mac from overwriting the files.
