Batch-changing filetypes

The FileTypes preferences panel has received a major overhaul for R4, though its functionality remains largely unchanged. One cool thing you can do with it, however, is to change the type of dozens, hundreds, or thousands of files all at once. Just select a group of files in the Tracker and drag the whole group onto the FileTypes panel. A special dialog will appear, from which you can select a new type. After selecting, pull down File | Save. Say yes to the confirmation dialog and all of those types will be changed at once.
