Default Folder 4.0.3 Adds Contextual Menus

St. Claire Software announced the immediate availability of Default Folder X 4.0.3 on Friday. The new version adds contextual menus to Open and Save dialogs. It also remembers the both the position and size of Open and Save dialog boxes; something that Leopard doesnit always do.

A partial list of whatis new in version 4.0.3 includes:

  • Found and fixed a lurking memory corruption problem that affected many Carbon applications, including Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, Quark Xpress, Filemaker, Firefox, and iTunes.
  • Added contextual menus to Open and Save dialogs. This allows you to control-click on a file or folder to rename, trash, or compress it in Save dialogs as well as Open dialogs.
  • Corrected a bug that could cause Default Folder X to use CPU time while it was sitting idle in the background.
  • Finder labels now show the names you have set in your Finder preferences, not just the default color names.
  • Default Folder X now remembers both the position and size of Open and Save dialogs because Leopard doesnit always do so reliably.
  • Hierarchical menus now show the names of aliases, rather than the names of the files or folders to which the aliases refer.
  • In order to change the sort order of the Recent Folders menu, you must now hold down the Control key instead of the Option key.
  • Fixed the "hold down the option key while choosing Open to display all files" feature so it works correctly in Cocoa applications.
  • Caps-lock prevented click-to-copy-a-filename from working in Save dialogs. This has been fixed.

Default Folder X attaches a toolbar to your Open and Save dialogs in any OS X-native application. The toolbar gives you fast access to various folders and commands.

Default Folder X 4.0.3 requires Mac OS X and is a Universal Binary. It is priced at US$34.95. A version for Mac OS X 10.3.9 is available.
