Default Folder X: What's new in this release
Description

June 18, 2018

Version 5.2.5 delivers preliminary support for Mojave, more folder sorting options and manual access to default folders.

 

If you already bought Version 5, this update is free.

If you are upgrading from version 4, this may be a paid upgrade for you.

If you have a Default Folder X license purchased before June 1, 2015, there is a $14.95 upgrade fee for this version. If you purchased on or after June 1, 2015, your upgrade is free and your existing serial number will work in version 5.1.

What was new in version 5.2.5

Feature enhancements:

  • Preliminary Mojave compatibility. Mojave file dialogs are supported, but Dark Mode is still to come.
  • There's now a preference to sort all subfolders in Default Folder X's hierarchical menus by date. It's surprisingly handy.
  • You can specify a default folder for an application and set it so it's only used when manually selected from the Favorites menu.
  • Added a GetCurrentSelectionList AppleScript verb to return all items when multiple files and folders are selected.
  • You can no longer set a shortcut key that's just Shift+Key because that's never really what you want.
  • Support was added for the Oxygen XML Editor suite.
  • If you would prefer to have Default Folder X continue to use the Finder to open folders even when you are running Path Finder or ForkLift, you can now specify that by using this command in Terminal:
    defaults write com.stclairsoft.DefaultFolderX5 fileViewer com.apple.finder

Bug fixes:

  • When displaying a symbolic link in its menus, Default Folder X now shows the name of the link rather than the name of the item it points to.
  • If Default Folder X is set to open an item in the frontmost Finder window and the only open Finder window is minimized to the Dock, the window will be unminimized when Default Folder X tells the Finder to show the item.
  • The popup names shown when you hover over items in the drag zone will no longer get stuck on-screen.
  • Visual feedback when dragging an item to the drag zone is now correct. The '+' and link icons are never shown.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a file dialog to freeze with a spinning progress indicator showing.
  • Keyboard traversal of Default Folder X's menus would stop working after using its utility menu. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed a bug that made it impossible to drag a file to the drag zone if you clicked on its icon in column view while running High Sierra.
  • Corrected display problems when showing Default Folder X's controls around very short file dialogs.
  • Fixed the cause of some spurious crashes.

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.
