Default Folder X 4.4.3 brings more Lion fixes

Well, more trouble has turned up on Lion, primarily with Carbon applications that have been released recently such as BBEdit 10 and Filemaker Pro 11. Default Folder X 4.4.3 was released today to address the issues, as well as a problem with Lion’s full-screen mode and several other less crucial bugs. You can grab your copy from the Default Folder X Release Page.

I’m finally heading for bed…

    Palm is also a victim. How can I recover my datebook and contacts ? New owners (HP) unable to help.

      I’m not sure Alfred – I’m assuming that the problem for you is that Palm Desktop is a PPC application, and Lion no longer supports Rosetta, right? I believe the only way is to get your Palm Desktop files over to a machine that will still run Palm Desktop so you can export them. You can then import the contact info into Address Book or Outlook. A quick Google search shows a bunch of help, but they all require that you export your data from Palm Desktop, so you need someone with a pre-Lion version of OS X installed on their Mac…

    Thank you for the quick Lion fixes. Unfortunately, one of the features I used most often under Snow Leopard is still non-functional. In Open/Save dialogs, I would right-click to bring up a contextual menu that would allow me to rename or even Trash files. I would love to see that feature restored, if at all possible.

    Thank you!

      The contextual menu is actually still available under Lion in some applications, but not in others. It depends on whether the app is using new API calls or old ones under the hood. In any case, I’m working to get Default Folder X updated to support the new API’s as well as the old ones – then you should have the contextual menu back in all apps.
