Default Folder X 4.6.4

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 4.6.4 [1], which improves how the initial folder is set in a file dialog in a wide range of popular applications, including Appleā€™s Mail and Pages, Microsoft Word and Excel, and Adobe InDesign and Photoshop. The update fixes an issue in Carbon applications that could result in file dialogs switching away from a folder after Default Folder X initially switched to it, addresses a bug with the rebound feature that caused nothing to be selected, and corrects a conflict with OmniOutliner 4 that caused its Export dialog to hang. It also fixes a bug that could cause the Save button to stop working in Save As dialogs, and resolves a conflict related to apps and macro utilities that type text into the filename field of Save dialogs (such as Typinator, Keyboard Maestro, and TypeIt4Me). ($34.95 new, $10 off for TidBITS members [2], free update, 11.1 MB, release notes [3])
