Default Folder X: What's new in this release

October 27, 2017

Default Folder X 5.1.8 fixes bugs and improves compatibility with High Sierra, Pro Tools and RapidWeaver


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's new in version 5.1.8

  • Fixed a problem with Default Folder X not recognizing the currently selected file or folder in some Open and Save dialogs on High Sierra. This caused previews, comments and tags to be missing in DFX's attribute window, as well as causing Copy, Rename, Move to Trash, and other commands to fail.
  • When Default Folder X relaunches the Finder after adding or removing itself from Finder window toolbars, windows that are open in the Finder will be properly saved and restored.
  • You can now enter relative paths with spaces in them when using Default Folder X > Preferences > Folders > Favorites > + > Add Path or URL.
  • If you add an application to Default Folder X's exception list and that application is already running, Default Folder X will now warn you that you have to quit and relaunch the app before changes will take effect.
  • Fixed a problem with packaged files (such as RapidWeaver documents) not getting added to Default Folder X's recent file history.
  • Corrected a bug that could cause Default Folder X's preference file converter to crash when importing v4 preferences.
  • Folder switching did not work correctly in Pro Tools' Import Audio file dialog. This has been fixed.
  • If an alias is selected, Default Folder X will show a preview of the original file or folder.

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.
