Save your files effortlessly and open your folders instantly—Default
Folder X makes Mac OS X's Open and Save dialogs work as quickly as you
do. Custom keyboard shortcuts put your favorite and recent folders at
your fingertips. Pop-up menus let you navigate your folders and open
Finder windows. Open, save, and get back to work: Default Folder X is
workflow for the rest of us.
- Navigate through folders with menus. You no longer have to navigate
one folder at a time. With Default Folder X's hierarchical menus, you
can quickly descend through multiple levels of folders without clicking
your time away.
- Open from or Save to windows you have open in the Finder. Simply
click on the window you want and the Open or Save dialog will display
that folder. If you can't click on the window you want, a popup menu
lets you choose from any window you have open in the Finder.
- Quickly go to recently used and favorite folders. Default Folder
X's menus track folders you've used recently and give you fast access
to your favorite folders. And you can assign command keys to your
favorites to get to them even faster.
- Rename, delete, archive, and get information on files and folders
without leaving a file dialog. Default Folder X provides many useful
commands so you don't have to leave the Open or Save dialog to do something
basic like renaming a file.
- "Rebound" back to the last item that you selected in a
folder. You no longer have to hunt through a list of files for a particular
document you were working on before. Choose Open from the File menu,
and it's already selected.
- The Finder, integrated. When you really need to do more with a file
or folder, you can make Default Folder X tell the Finder to open the
same folder shown in an Open or Save dialog. You can also assign hotkeys
to your favorite folders to open them in the Finder instantly.
- Set a default folder for any application. The first time an application
presents an Open or Save dialog, the contents of the file dialog may
show your Documents folder or some other location that's not where
you want to be. With Default Folder X, you control the initial location
shown in Open and Save dialogs.
- Make better use of Spotlight. Apple introduced Spotlight and Smart
Folders in Mac OS 10.4, but there's still no way to easily add keywords
and comments to files as you create them. Default Folder X fixes this
by letting you enter Spotlight comments and OpenMeta tags when
you save a file.
- Get a better preview. Apple only gives you previews in column view,
and they're confined to the size of the column. Default Folder X gives
you more, offering previews in Open dialogs when using column, list,
or icon view, and it dynamically resizes them to fit on your screen.
Default Folder X supports all Carbon and Cocoa applications running
in Mac OS X, including Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, Firefox,
Mail, iPhoto, Safari, iMovie, iDVD, iTunes and OmniWeb.
