Open/Save frustration in Mavericks

  • Posted: 28 May 2014 03:04 PM

    I can’t seem to figure this one out. In the Open/Save dialog of all non-Apple apps, there is a drop down in the top bar that shows the path of the current folder and a list of recently used folders. However, when I am using Preview or TextEdit, the Open/Save dialog just has an iCloud or On My Mac button icons to adjust the file view; the drop down is missing. The recent folders list is super useful, but I cannot figure out if it’s possible to get it to appear in these Apple apps. Anyone have any idea how to do it?

    Hmmm. Got a lot of views of this but no one has any answers. I just prowled around on the Apple boards and found the same unanswered question.

    When I try to save in TextEdit, I see a “recent places” selection. I have the usual “desktop” and such, iCloud, then “recent places”.

    Same is true in Preview.
