Thanks to Rick Meikle’s careful detailing of exactly what has been wrong with Default Folder X’s “rebound” feature, I’ve now rewritten the rebound code to work much better. It’s in the latest development build of DFX, which is available here:
In addition, I’ve added a hidden option to display files as well as folders in Default Folder X’s hierarchical menus. When you select a file, the file dialog is taken to its parent folder and the file is selected if the current application can open it. To get to the switch to turn this on, go to Default Folder X in System Preferences and click on the “Settings…” button while holding down the Option key. Turn on the bottom checkbox in the window that comes up – it’s labeled “AlwaysShowFilesInMenus”.
As always, your comments, feedback, and bug reports are crucial to making better software, so speak up!
