Default Folder X 5.2.2

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 5.2.2, reducing the time it takes for controls to first appear next to a file dialog in macOS 10.13 High Sierra. The Open/Save dialog enhancement utility also adds new AppleScript commands that enable you to remove recent files, recent folders, and default folders; fixes a bug that could leave a file dialog stuck on screen with a spinning progress indicator; improves placeholder text to make it clear where to enter comments and tags; corrects a problem working with file dialogs in Keyboard Maestro and LaunchBar; and makes group headers in the Shortcut preferences more prominent. ($34.95 new, TidBITS members save $10 on new copies and $5 on upgrades, 7.1 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
