Default Folder X 4.6.12 fixes ever-growing Save dialogs, recent folder tracking and more

December 12th, 2014 by Jon

Here’s the latest release of Default Folder X. It fixes the “Attack of the 50-foot Save Sheet” bug in Yosemite, makes the initial folder in Mail and NetNewsWire file dialogs work sanely,  and addresses some problems in Default Folder X itself. It should track your recent folders better, its contextual menu works in column view in Yosemite, and the menubar menu now has all the more-frequently-used stuff at the top, where it’s easier to get to.

I’m still working on a couple of additional issues in Yosemite (though they occur very infrequently), so the website isn’t going to get its makeover until after the holidays (sigh). Yosemite’s a bit of a frustrating beast.

And one more thing… If you find that Default Folder X keeps asking you to enter your registration code every few days, stop using MacKeeper. Their latest release mistakenly deletes Default Folder X’s preference files. I’ve already notified them of the problem, but it’d probably get fixed a little faster if you contacted them too (use the phone number at the bottom of the linked page).

A list of changes and download links are on the Default Folder X Release page.

Default Folder X beta fixes the “Attack of the 50-foot Save Sheet”

December 5th, 2014 by Jon

Jason Snell recently publicized an amusing bug in Yosemite that he called the “Attack of the 50-foot Save Sheet.” It results in Save As dialogs in some applications growing taller and taller until they run off the bottom of the screen – at which point you can no longer reach the OK and Cancel buttons. And then it might not be so amusing anymore.

I submitted a bug report detailing the problem to Apple two months ago, but they haven’t addressed it in a system update yet. Since Default Folder X knows a thing or two about file dialogs, I figured I’d just take care of it in the interim, so there’s now a beta version of Default Folder X that fixes it, along with a few other issues (aka bugs) in the current release of Default Folder X.

Go to the Default Folder X Beta Testing page for details and a download link. And please, send feedback about how it’s working to defaultfolder@stclairsoft.com – that’s the whole point of putting out a pre-release version!

Thanks!

– Jon

Default Folder X 4.6.11 delivers 2 important bug fixes

October 28th, 2014 by Jon

Default Folder X 4.6.11 is available now, bringing you a couple of important fixes when running on Yosemite. The first is a bug fix for a crash that occurs under some circumstances in Carbon applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Word. The second is a more minor problem with BusyCal and BusyContacts, where Default Folder X would prevent one of the initial setup dialogs from defaulting to the proper folder.

You can grab the new version from http://www.stclairsoft.com/DefaultFolderX/index.html. This update is free for anyone who’s purchased a license for Default Folder X version 4.

App Store Note: If you purchased Jettison from the Mac App Store, you can still upgrade to version 1.4.1. Just download the new version from our website and double-click on it once before you copy it to your Applications folder. When you do this, it will copy your App Store license so you’re not asked to pay for it again.
