ABOUT DEFAULT FOLDER X
Awarded Macworld Magazine’s 2002 Editors’ Choice Award for Best
System Enhancement Utility, Default Folder X makes OS X Open and Save
dialogs “work the way they should,” according to Macworld’s editors.
Default Folder X makes it easier for you to manage files by adding
features and correcting flaws in the Mac OS X file dialogs of both
Cocoa and Carbon applications.
Some of the enhancements Default Folder X makes to your Open and Save
1. It shows you where you are. The top menu in a file dialog lists
the active folder and its enclosing folders, letting you see
where you are with a single click.
2. It helps you switch to a folder quickly. Hierarchical menus in
the Open and Save dialogs and in the menu bar let you move around to
all of your folders with a single click.
3. It gives you access to windows you have open in the Finder. Switch
the file dialog to a folder you have open in the Finder by simply
clicking on the window you want, or by selecting it from the menu.
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, use Default Folder X to open the
folder shown in an Open or Save dialog in the Finder. Or use Default
Folder X’s hotkeys or convenient menus in the Dock or menu bar to
access recent, favorite, and other useful folders at any time.
Default Folder X will operate on any Macintosh running Mac OS X
version 10.2 or higher, including Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger). Default Folder
X 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. Registered
ACTION Files users can upgrade for $24.95.
