Default Folder X 4.5.8

Send Article to a Friend

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 4.5.8 with a few more corrections to issues that cropped up in its two recent maintenance releases (see “Default Folder X 4.5.7,” 10 March 2013). Default Folder X can now be accessed in Java applications running in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The update also fixes a bug that caused file dialogs to hang in Preview, TextEdit, and Mail after using Default Folder X’s menus, and it returns missing items to the utility menu and contextual menu. Other user interface-related corrections include localizing the Quick Look command in the utility menu and contextual menus and adding VoiceOver labels to the Default Folder X toolbar buttons. ($34.95 new, $10 off for TidBITS members, free update, 11.4 MB, release notes)
