Default Folder X 5.0.5

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 5.0.5 with added compatibility with Geneious and the recently released Alfred 3 (see “Alfred 3.0.1,” 4 June 2016). The Open/Save dialog enhancement utility fixes a bug that made switching between folders unreliable on some machines (particularly when running OS X 10.10 Yosemite), enables you to choose between iTerm2 and Terminal when opening folders in a terminal application, and resolves a crash that occurred if an app didn’t properly handle accessibility requests while in the background. The update also adds a default option to ignore hidden Finder windows; use the following command in Terminal to turn it on:

defaults write com.stclairsoft.DefaultFolderX finderClickShowHiddenWindows 0

($34.95 new, $14.95 upgrade from version 4, TidBITS members save $10 on new copies and $5 on upgrades, 8.1 MB, release notes, 10.10+)

Is there any chance that this version of DF works within Adobe's apps? Recent versions dont seem to.
