Default Folder X 5.1.5 – Enhances Open and Save dialogs.

Default Folder X 5.1.5

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 5.1.5:

  • Default Folder X now recognizes Save As dialogs when they're in 'minimized' mode; because it can't provide its full functionality in that state, it provides a button to maximize the dialog so you can take advantage of its full feature set
  • Eliminated a bug that could cause Default Folder X to unexpectedly quit
  • Corrected a problem that could cause the Save button to stop working in some Save As dialogs
  • Fixed a bug that caused Default Folder X to function incorrectly in some applications if you clicked the app's icon in the Dock while it was displaying a file dialog; this affected Office 2011 and older Adobe Creative Suite apps, among others
  • Corrected a problem with Default Folder X not working correctly when its toolbar overlapped the Dock
  • Default Folder X's toolbar no longer disappears when using a Favorite shortcut with the Control+Option modifier keys
  • Fixed an interface bug that caused shortcuts containing the Shift key to display incorrectly in Default Folder X's menus
  • Remedied problems with shortcuts not working when the Caps Lock key was on
  • Corrected some visual glitches that occurred with Default Folder X's 'minimal toolbar' appearance
  • Improved switching between Spaces while a file dialog is open
  • Eliminated several memory leaks
