Default Folder X 5.1.9

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 5.1.9, adding a new Recently Closed submenu to the Finder’s Window menu. The Open/Save dialog enhancement utility properly hides file extensions when the Hide Extension checkbox is selected in a Save dialog, provides better workarounds for a bug in macOS 10.13 High Sierra that prevented Default Folder X from knowing which item was selected in a file dialog, correctly handles Desktop and Documents folders on iCloud, fixes a potential crash that could occur when Default Folder X relaunched the Finder, and adds an option to make Default Folder X use color icons in its toolbar (via a Terminal command). ($34.95 new, TidBITS members save $10 on new copies and $5 on upgrades, 7.0 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
