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

September 22, 2017

Default Folder X 5.1.6 adds High Sierra compatibility and numerous fixes and enhancements.

 

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 5.1.6

  • Compatible with High Sierra (macOS 10.13).
  • The Finder-click feature's "choose the desktop" option now highlights the desktop with "holes" where Finder windows are located.
  • You can now enter relative paths for Favorites. If you use a consistent structure for organizing projects, it can be very helpful to set a favorite such as "../images/" to go to an adjacent "images" folder and be able to use the same folder in multiple locations. To enter a relative favorite, choose "Add Path or URL" after clicking the '+' icon in Default Folder X > Preferences > Folders > Favorites.
  • Previews for aliases are now displayed correctly, rather than just showing the file's alias icon.
  • Default Folder X no longer adds duplicate tags when you use the macOS-supplied tag field in Save dialogs.
  • Fixed a bug that caused unsaved comments or tags to disappear if you switched from a Save dialog to another application and then back to the Save dialog.
  • Default Folder X’s drawer no longer appears when you enter Time Machine.
  • Open and Save dialogs that appear as floating windows instead of normal modal dialogs are now handled correctly.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Default Folder X to incorrectly remember the last state of a Save dialog.
  • Corrected UI glitches in Finder-click when using Default Folder X's "Minimal Toolbar" appearance.
  • Icons in the Drop Zone are now loaded when they're needed, eliminating problems with the icons appearing blank when they can't be supplied by QuickLook at startup.
  • Switching folders using Default Folder X's menus now works consistently in file dialogs brought up when changing preferences.
  • Fixed a problem with Default Folder X getting confused in certain situations when you clicked on an alias in column view.
  • Eliminated flashing in the user interface when you click on a disclosure triangle in a Save dialog.
  • Corrected improper scaling of preview images that could occur in some circumstances.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when clicking on the sidebar in file dialogs.
  • Added an API that allows software developers to disable Default Folder X for special file dialogs in their Mac applications.
  • Added a warning about Tencent's QQ chat app because it disables DFX's folder switching feature.
  • Several memory leaks and potential crashes have been eliminated.
  • Updated Default Folder X's icon.

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.
