Default Folder X 6.0.4: QSpace Integration, Quick Search refinement and a fix for an annoying bug

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2024

A lot of you have been asking for integration with QSpace so that you can use Default Folder X’s Finder-click feature to quickly access folders shown in your QSpace windows. I’m happy to report that after working with Wenda, the developer behind QSpace, we’ve made that happen!

Default Folder X 6.0.4 will automatically recognize open QSpace windows. They’ll be listed in Default Folder X’s Finder Windows menu, the Finder-click feature will jump to folders when you click on QSpace windows while in an Open or Save dialog, and you can set up Default Folder X to open folders in QSpace instead of the Finder (note that you need at least QSpace 4.2.1 or QSpace Pro 4.2.2 for all of this to work).

Oh – and a quick Finder-click pro tip: Right-click on a QSpace window to pop up a menu that shows the folders shown in all panes of the window.

And speaking of opening folders, you can now explicitly tell Default Folder X whether to open folders in the Finder, QSpace, ForkLift or Path Finder when you choose them from Default Folder X’s menus. 👉🏼

In version 6.0.4, Quick Search has gotten a few enhancements, including little icons beneath each search result to show whether Default Folder X found that item in your recent history, favorites, or a standard app location. And when you right-click on a result, you can now copy the file or folder, add or remove it from your favorites, or remove it from the recent file / folder / app history (depending on where it was found).

And last, but definitely not least, Default Folder X 6.0.4 includes several bug fixes. The biggest is the elimination of an annoying delay that could occur when a Save dialog first came up. Not only did the bug produce a hiccup that made you wait, but it could swallow a character or two if you started typing a name for your saved file right away. My apologies for not catching this problem when we tested version 6.0.3 – the conditions that caused it weren’t present on my or any of my testers’ Macs because of settings changes that we made while testing previous releases.

A full list of changes and download links are available on the Default Folder X What’s New page. Or if you’re already running Default Folder X, just choose “Check for Update” from its menu in your menu bar.
