    It works fine in the open and save dialogues.

    But I don’t understand something: the interface in the Finder don’t appear around the windows, like in your capture.

    Is not yet implemented?

    Thank you for your work.

      The white bezel with the toolbar on it only goes around Open and Save dialog. In your DFX5 preferences (General), turn on the menu button and drawer button for the Finder’s toolbars – that’ll give you Default Folder X in the Finder, but with a minimal UI to keep it out of the way.

      The screenshots showing the white bezel are all pics of Open or Save dialogs.

    If we had 4.7.4 running under El Capitan (because it still provided some functionality), do we need to remove its Preference Pane after installing 5?

    • Jon says:

      Yes, you should remove the v4.7.4 preference pane from System Preferences (just right-click on it in the System Preferences window and choose “Remove” from the menu). The next beta build will offer to remove v4 for you.

    5b works well thus far. This was the most missed workflow app after El Cap was loaded. I had to bandaid my launcher to poorly sub for DFX. Thank you for providing the beta; I cannot work happily without DFX. Congrats on what appears to be a great upgrade.
