Default Folder Updated

St. Clair Software has updated Default Folder to version 3.0.7. Default Folder makes it easier for OS 9 users to navigate open and save dialog boxes, thus saving time while keeping users more organized. The latest version fixes a number of bugs, including one with Internet Explorer 5. According to St. Clair Software:

Default Folder 3.0.7 delivers several compatibility fixes, including an important fix for problems that could cause applications to unexpectedly quit when using Default Folderis Recent Folders menu. St. Clair Software recommends that all existing Default Folder 3.0 users download this free update.

Highlights of the changes in Default Folder 3.0.7 include:

  • The Recent Folders menu in old-style Standard File dialogs could become scrambled when Internet Explorer 5 was running on some Macs. This bug, which could cause applications to quit or the Mac to crash, has been fixed.
  • Default Folder will no longer add folders to the Recent Folder list if they are invisible or are nested within invisible folders.
  • Default Folderis popup menu in the Finder has been fixed. The Sets submenu now works correctly and the menu organization is more logical.
  • The popup menu can no longer be configured to pop up with no modifier keys.
  • YA-NewsWatcher, iMovie and Linocolor Elite have been added to the exception list of applications that require Navigation Services.

Default Folder is a Mac OS 9 savvy control panel that enhances Open and Save dialog boxes to make it easier for Macintosh users to manage their files. It provides many of the essential features of the commercial ACTION Files, SuperBoomerang, and Directory Assistance utilities, but distinguishes itself by not including some infrequently used extras. By doing this, Default Folder provides faster, more stable, more memory-efficient operation than competitive offerings. Default Folder is also fully compatible with both Navigation Services and "classic" Open and Save dialogs.

Default Folder is available for US$25. You can find more information at the St. Clair Software web site.
