Default Folder X 3.0 Adds Universal Binary Support, More

by , 5:25 PM EDT, May 12th, 2006

St. Clair Software on Friday released version 3.0 of Default Folder X, its utility that improves Open and Save dialog boxes. This upgrade is not only a Universal Binary, but it also adds support for adding and editing a file's Spotlight comments while saving or opening it, and two new AppleScript commands.

Other changes include "upside-down path" menus at the bottom of all hierarchical menus, enabling users to navigate into enclosing folders of the current folder, as well as the ability to create .zip archives from open and save dialog boxes. The application's "Finder-click" feature has been enhanced with the ability to respond on clicks on the Desktop as well as in Finder windows.

Anyone who purchased Default Folder X before Jan. 1, 2006 can upgrade to the new version for US$14.95. Users who bought the software after that date should have received an email from St. Clair Software with a free registration code for the new version, which requires Mac OS X v10.3. The full software is $34.95.
