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.
- There's a new Quick Start panel that's displayed the first time you run Default Folder X or if you choose "Quick Start" from its menu in the menu bar.
- In its menus, Default Folder X now merges the contents of the /Applications and /System/Applications folders when running on Catalina. This makes them consistent with the Finder.
- Default Folder X's Finder window drawer will correctly open when clicking on the Finder's icon in the Dock to bring the Finder to the front.
- The preference "Open & Save When opening a folder in the Finder switch to the Finder / stay in the file dialog" did not work correctly. This has been fixed.
- The preference "Menus Sort submenus by Name / Date" wasn't correctly disabled when "Show the contents of folders using submenus" was turned off.
- Corrected a problem that could cause Default Folder X's bezel around a file dialog to disappear if the file dialog was quickly switched to the background and then back to the foreground.
- Fixed a bug that could cause the "Save all attachments" dialog in Apple Mail to get stuck.
