    Maybe if you change the permissions for the folder you are saving the files in to read & write for everyone then the resulting files saved there will also be. Just a suggestion, no idea if it actually works or not, but worth a try.

    It won't work, no. I don't know of a way to do this, and I would strongly advise against trying to set this kind of behaviour by default. It poses a potential data security risk. Better deal with the inconvenience and chmod the specific files you want. It would be easy enough to set up an AppleScript droplet to change the permissions for you on demand.

    By the way, two threads on the subject really weren't necessary.
