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

October 27, 2017

Default Folder X 5.1.9 tracks recently closed Finder windows, ensures extensions are hidden, and corrects several bugs.

 

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 5.1.9

Feature enhancements:

  • 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"

Bug fixes:

  • 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.

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.

System Requirements
macOS 10.10 through 10.13
