Default Folder X: What's new in this release

September 29, 2016

Default Folder X 5.0.7 corrects a few
issues 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 5.0.7.

What's new in 5.0.7:

  • Worked around a crash that occurs at startup under macOS 10.12 Sierra.
  • Fixed problems handling minimized Save dialogs. This was causing Default Folder X not to appear in Save dialogs when it should.
  • Brought back the hidden pref that makes file dialogs start in the topmost document's folder when exporting or printing.
  • Corrected problems detecting the current folder when running on systems for which Default Folder X isn't localized.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause an inoperative file dialog to be left on-screen.
  • Panels in the preferences that contain lists are now resizable.

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.
