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 in Default Folder X 5.1.9
- Added a new “Recently Closed” submenu to the Finder Windows menu so you can easily re-open recently closed Finder windows
- When the Hide Extension checkbox is turned on in a Save dialog, Default Folder X will ensure that the resulting file has its extension hidden in applications that don’t properly support extension hiding (like Google Chrome).
- Added better workarounds for a bug in High Sierra that prevents Default Folder X from knowing which item is selected in a file dialog
- Added an option (available with a Terminal command) to make Default Folder X use color icons in its toolbar; enter this command in Terminal:”defaults write com.stclairsoft.DefaultFolderX5 colorToolbar 1“
- The green gumdrop on the preferences window is now enabled or disabled correctly depending on whether the current preference tab is resizable.
- Desktop and Documents folders on iCloud could sometimes confuse Default Folder X; it now correctly handles them.
- Fixed a potential crash that could occur when Default Folder X relaunched the Finder
- Fixed a bug that could cause Default Folder X to crash at random times
