St. Clair Software updates Default Folder X adding Jaguar support and
“Finder Click” feature

(Blacksburg, VA — August 12, 2002) St. Clair Software has released version
1.6 of Default Folder X, its utility for improving Open and Save dialogs in
Mac OS X.

Default Folder X 1.6 includes support for Mac OS X 10.2 (“Jaguar”) and also
adds the much-requested “click on a Finder window” feature to OS X. You can
now display a folder in an Open or Save dialog by simply clicking on that
folder’s window. Version 1.6 also integrates XRay and FileExaminer as well
as Super Get Info for expanded Get Info capabilities, and improves
compatibility with AppleScript, QuickTime, OmniPage, and Ircle. This update
is free to users who have registered earlier versions of Default Folder X.

Default Folder makes it easier for users to manage files by adding features
and correcting flaws in the Mac OS X file dialogs. It supports both Cocoa
and Carbon applications.

Among the enhancements Default Folder X makes are:

1. It lets you type in Carbon applications. When you type the names of
files and folders, they are correctly selected in the file listing.

2. It shows you where you are. The top menu in a file dialog lists
the active folder and its enclosing folders, just as it did in
Mac OS 9.

3. It gives you access to windows you have open in the Finder. A
popup menu gives you a list of all of the windows open in the
Finder. Selecting one from the menu, or simply clicking on the
window you want, switches the file dialog to that folder.

4. It quickly takes you to recently used and favorite folders.
You can even assign command keys to your favorites to save more

5. It lets you rename, delete, and get information on files and folders
without leaving the file dialog.

6. It “rebounds” back to the last item that you selected in a folder.

7. It opens folders for you in the Finder. When you really need to
do more with a file or folder, Default Folder X can tell the Finder
to open the folder shown in an Open or Save dialog.

Default Folder X will operate on any Macintosh running Mac OS X version
10.1.2 or higher. It is distributed as shareware, requiring a $34.95
registration fee for use beyond a free 30 day trial period. Registered
Default Folder 3.x users can upgrade to Default Folder X for $19.95.
