New File for Mac
Creating new documents can be a time consuming process, especially if you have to launch large applications such as Microsoft Excel or Word and Apple’s Pages in order to create the desired file. Thanks to New File you no longer have to waste time launching applications in order to create just a simple document.
New File is a self-explanatory and low-key application specially designed to help Mac users create new documents in a couple of seconds and with just a few mouse clicks. What is more, New File lives in your Mac’s status bar but, you can also use it features via the Services or the context menu.
From New File’s status bar menu you can easily create a new TXT, RTF, DOCX, XLSX or PAGES document and open the Preferences window. Hence, every time you need to create a simple text file, Word, Excel or Pages document you just need to access New File’s status bar menu.
What is more, New File seamlessly integrates with your Mac and, as a result, you can use the context or Services menu after selecting a folder or file in order to create a new document. You have access to the same options provided by the status bar menu and once you selected the desired task, you just have to provide a name and a location for your document.
By accessing the Preferences window, you can configure New File to always ask for the file name, always open the created file, open Finder and select the file after creation and even quit when the file creation is completed.
If the New File menu does not appear in the context menu you can try to relaunch the application and access the menu one more time. It is worth mentioning that in some Mac OS X versions you might need to logout and login again in order to update the services.
All thing considered, New File is handy and intuitive application that can help you save precious time that you can spend with the content of your documents rather with the creation process.
