Default Folder X 3.0.6 Updates
Spotlight Auto-Completion, Improves Compatibility
Blacksburg, VA — July 10, 2007 — St. Clair Software is happy to announce
the release of Default Folder X 3.0.6, a free update to its award-winning
utility for enhancing Open and Save dialogs.
Version 3.0.6 corrects issues with Default Folder X’s new auto-completion
feature for Spotlight keywords. It also includes several compatibility
fixes for Japanese users and those who also run the Menufela utility.
Highlights of the changes in Default Folder X 3.0.6 include:
– Fixed crashes that could occur during the entry of Spotlight keywords.
– Spotlight keyword completion now preserves the case of the letters you
type, rather than making the case match that of the last matching keyword
– Worked around a bug which would disable Japanese Kotoeri input in the
Spotlight keyword dialog.
– Corrected a problem that caused some messages to display in English
instead of Japanese on Japanese systems.
– A conflict with Menufela has been resolved. Default Folder X’s toolbar
and Spotlight keyword window now display correctly even when Menufela is
hiding the menu bar.

ABOUT DEFAULT FOLDER X
Awarded Macworld Magazine’s 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 file dialogs of all Mac OS X applications.
Default Folder X lets you:
1. Navigate through folders with menus. You no longer have to navigate one
folder at a time. With Default Folder X’s hierarchical menus, you can
quickly descend through multiple levels of folders without clicking your
2. Open from or Save to windows you have open in the Finder. Simply click
on the window you want and the Open or Save dialog will display that
folder. If you can’t click on the window you want, a popup menu lets you
choose from any window you have open in the Finder.
3. Quickly go to recently used and favorite folders. Default Folder X’s
menus track folders you’ve used recently and give you fast access to your
favorite folders. And you can assign command keys to your favorites to get
to them even faster.
4. Rename, delete, archive, and get information on files and folders
without leaving a file dialog. Default Folder X provides many useful
commands so you don’t have to leave the Open or Save dialog to do something
basic like renaming a file.
5. “Rebound” back to the last item that you selected in a folder. You no
longer have to hunt through a list of files for a particular document you
were working on before. Choose Open from the File menu, and it’s already
6. The Finder integrated. When you really need to do more with a file or
folder, you can make Default Folder X tell the Finder to open the same
folder shown in an Open or Save dialog. You can also assign hotkeys to your
favorite folders to open them in the Finder instantly.
7. Set a default folder for any application. The first time an application
presents an Open or Save dialog, the contents of the file dialog may show
your Documents folder or some other location that’s not where you want to
be. With Default Folder X, you control the initial location shown in Open
and Save dialogs.
8. Make better use of Spotlight. Apple introduced Spotlight and Smart
Folders in Mac OS 10.4, but there’s no way to easily add keywords and
comments to files as you create them. Default Folder X fixes this by
letting you enter Spotlight comments when you save a file.
Default Folder X will operate on any Macintosh running Mac OS X version
10.3 or higher, including Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger), and is a Universal
Application compatible with both PowerPC- and Intel-powered Macintoshes.
Default Folder X is distributed as shareware, requiring a $34.95
registration fee for use beyond a free 30 day trial period.
