Use the keyboard to quickly access favorites, recent files, folders, apps or Finder windows. Pop up Default Folder X's new Quick Search window with a keyboard shortcut, type a few characters of an item's name, and then quickly go to it in a file dialog or open it in the Finder.
Wide filename field when saving files. Pretty self-explanatory - the default macOS Save As dialogs have an edit box that's way too narrow to accommodate a descriptive file name. Default Folder X 6 makes it bigger.
Drag and drop files and folders to Default Folder X's icon in the menu bar to move or copy them to another location. Pick a destination folder quickly from DFX's Recent and Favorites menus, or drill down to any folder using it's hierarchical menus.
Customize Default Folder X's menu in your menu bar. Add, remove and reorganize menus and menu items to fit your workflow.
Perform actions on files after saving them. Automatically open the saved file, attach it to an email, or run AppleScripts, Automator Workflows or Shortcuts on it.
Sync your Default Folder X settings between Macs. If you've got more than one Mac with the same file and folder organization, sync your settings via iCloud so Default Folder X works the same on both machines.
More powerful drawer in the Finder. Default Folder X's Finder drawer has been rewritten to be more useful and intuitive. Use it as a temporary drag-and-drop holding space, or as a location for often used files and folders.
Support for macOS 14 Sonoma. Yes, it's compatible with Apple's latest and greatest.
As a long-term Mac user, i have installed demo software beyond count. Yours is one of the few that I've seen the worth in investing in.

It's one of those programs that I wonder how I lived without for so long. Before I was constantly clicking through directories every time I wanted to open, save or attach a file. Now I do almost everything in just a few clicks.
