Default Folder X: What's new in this release

June 8, 2020

Version 5.4.6 addresses a number of issues, including problems saving attachments in Apple Mail.


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 5.4.6

  • There's a new Quick Start panel that's displayed the first time you run Default Folder X or if you choose "Quick Start" from its menu in the menu bar.
  • In its menus, Default Folder X now merges the contents of the /Applications and /System/Applications folders when running on Catalina. This makes them consistent with the Finder.
  • Default Folder X's Finder window drawer will correctly open when clicking on the Finder's icon in the Dock to bring the Finder to the front.
  • The preference "Open & Save > When opening a folder in the Finder switch to the Finder / stay in the file dialog" did not work correctly. This has been fixed.
  • The preference "Menus > Sort submenus by Name / Date" wasn't correctly disabled when "Show the contents of folders using submenus" was turned off.
  • Corrected a problem that could cause Default Folder X's bezel around a file dialog to disappear if the file dialog was quickly switched to the background and then back to the foreground.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the "Save all attachments" dialog in Apple Mail to get stuck.

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.
