Default Folder X 4.6.6

Send Article to a Friend

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 4.6.6, reassigning the Command-D shortcut to jump to the Desktop rather than invoke the Duplicate command. The Open and Save dialog enhancement utility now enables you to use its Rebound feature (to quickly return to recently used folders) in column view, fixes a bug that caused some apps (like Monosnap) to save files with the wrong file names, and disables audio previews by default to avoid triggering OS X to switch to the high performance graphics processor on some Macs. ($34.95 new, $10 off for TidBITS members, free update, 10.7 MB, release notes, 10.6+)

 

PDFpen and PDFpenPro 7 make PDF editing easy. Review and mark up
your PDFs, fill and sign forms, and even export PDFs to Word format.
Signing is now easier, you can view the OCR text layer, and more.

Thank goodness! The redirection of command+D from "Desktop" to "Duplicate" inadvertently caused me to duplicate huge folders of data. I think I removed them all, but I suspect I didn't (wasting space on my drive).

By reverting command+D to "Desktop," I can once again use my Mac intuitively, quickly, and nicely, returning DefaultFolder X to my most indispensable utility for the Mac.
