Default Folder X: What's new in this release

March 24, 2017

Default Folder X 5.1.4 corrects a number of issues


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 5.1.4

  • The Favorites menu in file dialogs now includes commands to remove or edit the current default folder.
  • If you set tags using the standard macOS tag field at the top of a Save dialog, Default Folder X will copy the tags to its tag field below the Save dialog.
  • Corrected a problem that could cause Default Folder X to hang at certain times, especially when App Tamer stopped an application in the background.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Default Folder X to leak memory or behave oddly when you opened a file dialog and then very quickly closed it.
  • Corrected a bug that caused Default Folder X to stop functioning when selecting a new original for an alias in the Finder.
  • Worked around a bug in Spotlight that could cause Default Folder X to crash.
  • Made Default Folder X's folder switching in file dialogs more reliable.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause spurious crashes.
  • Updated the icons in Default Folder X's menubar menu.
  • Default Folder X will no longer be included in VoiceOver keyboard traversal because it makes it difficult to navigate the controls in file dialogs.

What's new in version 5 if you're still running version 4:

  • Fully compatible with El Capitan and Sierra.
  • Requires Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite) or higher.
  • Support for tabbed Finder windows in the Finder-click feature.
  • Default folders that can be applied by file extension as well as by application.
  • Hierarchical menus can now display all folders before files.
  • Tracking of recent files as well as recent folders.
  • An integrated menu in the Finder's toolbar.
  • Configurable keyboard shortcuts.
  • More information displayed for selected files.
  • File / folder tagging with draggable recent tags.
  • A new drag & drop sidebar for quick access to files and folders.
  • An updated user interface for setting preferences, adding favorites and setting default folders.

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.
