[9:00 AM] Default Folder Gets Funky With Multi-User Support
by Staff

St. Clair Software has updated the utility Default Folder to version 3.0.4. The popular utility, today announced as part of the shareware Reaction Bundle, allows users to more efficiently manage their files in Apple's "Open" and "Save" dialog boxes. The new version adds multi-user support. According to St. Clair Software:

St. Clair Software has updated Default Folder to version 3.0.4, bringing multi-user support to its popular control panel for enhancing Open and Save dialogs. This release takes advantage of the new Multiple User feature of Mac OS 9, as well as correcting a compatibility problem with some OS 9 applications.

Highlights of the changes in Default Folder 3.0.4 include:

Mac OS 9's Multiple User feature is now supported. When users log in and out, Default Folder will automatically load their private preference files. Folder's created with Default Folder's "New Folder" command now correctly inherit the view mode of their parent folder. An incompatibility with Carbon 1.0 applications, specifically Mac OS 9's Script Editor, has been fixed.

Default Folder is available as shareware for US$25, and registered users of version 3.x can upgrade for free. Registered users of older versions can upgrade for US$15. Special pricing is also available in the Reaction Bundle configuration. You can find more information at the St. Clair Software web site.
