IMPORTANT: There’s a bug in older versions of Default Folder X that can cause crashes while you’re using the hierarchical path menu if you’re running Mac OS 10.6. Make sure to install this update before you upgrade to Snow Leopard!
And now that we’ve got that dire warning out of the way, there are a couple of geeky little additions in this release that I’m partial to:
- You can globally set a minimum file dialog size and column width. Use these commands in terminal to set the values:
defaults write com.stclairsoft.DefaultFolderX minimumSize.width 800
defaults write com.stclairsoft.DefaultFolderX minimumSize.height 600
defaults write com.stclairsoft.DefaultFolderX minimumSize.columnWidth 250
Change the numbers at the end of the commands to the sizes you want to use (in pixels).
- You can list items in hierarchical menus chronologically rather than alphabetically by holding down the Control key.
Take a look at the release page for details about all of the changes.
