Default Folder X 5.0.5

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 5.0.5 [1] with added compatibility with Geneious and the recently released Alfred 3 (see “Alfred 3.0.1 [2],” 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
