Default Folder X 5.1

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 5.1 with improvements and bug fixes for the Open/Save dialog enhancement utility. The update adds new Move, Copy, and Make Alias commands so you can reorganize files from within Open and Save dialogs; enables you to reveal an item in the Finder by choosing it from a Default Folder X menu while holding the Command key; adds optional keyboard shortcuts to switch between folder sets; corrects bugs that made Default Folder X disappear from the menu bar; works around a cosmetic bug in macOS 10.12 Sierra that caused file dialogs to be the wrong size; and adds support for PDF Studio. ($34.95 new, $14.95 upgrade from version 4, TidBITS members save $10 on new copies and $5 on upgrades, 8.2 MB, release notes, 10.10+)

If you use copy and paste, you’re taking advantage of an important shortcut. But did you realize that the Mac offers dozens of shortcuts that make tedious tasks quick, accurate, and repeatable? Author Joe Kissell reveals OS X’s many shortcuts and examines the utilities that go further, offering concrete examples and long lists of possibilities.
