Default Folder X: What's new in this release

August 30, 2016

Default Folder X 5.0.6 fixes issues, adds new features
and is compatible with macOS 10.12 Sierra


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 5.0.4.

What's new in 5.0.6:

  • Added support for macOS 10.12 Sierra.
  • Added an option to keep Favorites sorted by name.
  • Default Folder X will now hide its controls if LaunchBar pops up while a file dialog is displayed.
  • Added support for version 3 of iTerm2.
  • Fixed a problem with the cursor sometimes disappearing.
  • Fixed a hang that could leave a file dialog on the screen until you quit Default Folder X.
  • Default Folder X shortcuts are correctly disabled in an application that is in the exclusion list in your preferences.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in Default Folder X failing to appear in an application until the app was quit and relaunched.
  • The Finder-window menu would sometimes fail to show some windows. This has been fixed.
  • Default Folder X now correctly recognizes the active tab in a Finder window rather than using the first one.
  • Corrected a bug that caused the rebound feature to fail in a few applications, including Silhouette Studio.
  • Default Folder X will work correctly with CoverFlow view if a file dialog uses it, even though it's no longer a selectable option in 10.11+.
  • Preferences are only saved when necessary, reducing disk I/O and delays when waking from sleep.
  • Default Folder X's launch speed has been improved.

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.
