St. Clair Software has updated its Open and Save dialog enhancement utility Default Folder X 4.5.7 with a single fix to resolve a conflict with the BetterTouchTool gesture utility (and other mouse drivers) that caused file dialogs to hang in some instances. This version follows the release of Default Folder X 4.5.5 earlier in the week, which fixed an issue that caused the menu bar menu to fail to respond on occasion and corrected a problem with inconsistent rebound functionality after launching or switching between applications. The update also adds Quick Look previews to the Default Folder X’s contextual menu within Open and Save dialogs (accessed via Control- or right-clicking).

New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.
