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.
Changes for Mojave:
- Default Folder X supports Dark Mode.
- Default Folder X correctly recognizes minimized Save dialogs.
- Fixed issues with recognizing selected files in column view.
Changes for all macOS versions:
- You can now add separators to your Favorites menu to visually organize it.
- When relaunching the Finder, the Finder would occasionally quit but not relaunch. This has been corrected.
- When showing and hiding its drawer in the Finder, Default Folder X will resize Finder windows to ensure that the drawer is visible on the screen.
- Finder drawers now remain visible if you're dragging and dropping an item and the Finder auto-pops open the folder to which you're dragging the item.
- Default Folder X's exclusion list failed to work with Java apps and apps that could not be brought to the front. This has been fixed.
- Previews of items in the drag zone or drawer are now correctly sized to keep them from flickering on the screen.
- Tooltips for items in the drawer are now intelligently displayed to ensure they're on-screen.
- Added a workaround for a bug in Newtek LightWave so that Default Folder X will work with it.
