Default Folder X 4.7.1 – Enhances Open and Save dialogs.

Default Folder X 4.7.1

Default Folder X attaches a toolbar to the right side of the Open and Save dialogs in any OS X-native application. The toolbar gives you fast access to various folders and commands. You just click on the buttons to go to your favorite and recently used folders, manage the folders and files shown in the list, and make changes to your settings. It also fixes a number of problems in Open and Save dialogs, “rebounding” to the last selected file, putting the path listing back in the top menu, and correcting bugs in scrolling column views.


  • Directory assistant: You can access the contents of your recent, favorite, and open folders right from Default Folder X’s toolbar.
  • Real time saving: If you’re constantly saving things inside the same folder, Default Folder X can remember that folder for you.
  • Finder management: Default Folder X lets you open up or save to any Finder window with a single click.
  • Instant Recall: To help you quickly return to folders you’ve recently used, Default Folder X remembers them for you.
  • Spotlight on the spot: Default Folder X lets you add Spotlight keywords, OpenMeta tags, and Finder labels on the spot, while you’re still in the Save dialog.
  • Information central: With Default Folder X you get previews below every Open dialog, expanded to fill the available space. Need to see more detail? Click on the image and it zooms up to full size.
  • Workflow without work: Rather than make you learn and set up a new application, Default Folder X blends into OS X.

What’s New

Version 4.7.1:

  • Fixed a bug in Mac OS 10.10.3 that causes Carbon applications (including Microsoft Word and Excel) to always default to your Documents folder.
  • Corrected a crash that could occur when Default Folder X encountered an alias file that incorrectly referred to itself.
  • Enabled resizing of the filename edit box in Save dialogs on Mavericks as well as Yosemite.
  • Folders within DEVONthink databases will no longer appear in your Recent Folders menu.
  • Fixed a problem that could result in the filename field in Save dialogs not updating correctly.
  • Improved Finder window monitoring so that Default Folder X doesn't lose track of the Finder's windows when the Finder is hidden automatically by other utility software. If the problem persists on your machine, Option-click on the Settings button in Default Folder X and turn on the ShowHiddenFinderWindows checkbox.
  • Added Command-Delete handling to Save dialogs as well as Open dialogs.
