Default Folder X is the perfect tool if you are looking to open folders in no time and save your files without any trouble.
Default Folder X allows you to navigate your folders using pop-up menus that will open Finder windows.
Thanks to the custom keyboard shortcuts your recent and favorite folders are available almost instantly.
Furthermore, Default Folder X helps you manage your files, preview their content, provides support for Spotlight tagging, and all in all, is improving your workflow.
Here are some key features of "Default Folder X":
Quickly go to recently used and favorite folders:
· Default Folder X's menus track folders you've used recently and give you fast access to your favorite folders. You can even assign command keys to your favorites to get to them even faster.
Navigate through folders with menus:
· You no longer have to navigate one folder at a time. With Default Folder X's hierarchical menus, you can quickly descend through multiple levels of folders without clicking your time away.
Open from or Save to windows you have open in the Finder:
· Simply click on the window you want and the Open or Save dialog will display that folder. If you can't click on the window you want, a popup menu lets you choose from any window you have open in the Finder.
"Rebound" back to the last item that you selected in a folder:
· You no longer have to hunt through a list of files for a particular document you were working on before. Choose Open from the File menu, and it's already selected.
The Finder, integrated:
· When you really need to do more with a file or folder, you can make Default Folder X tell the Finder to open the same folder shown in an Open or Save dialog. You can also assign hotkeys to your favorite folders to open them in the Finder instantly.
Set a default folder for any application:
· The first time an application presents an Open or Save dialog, the contents of the file dialog may show your Documents folder or some other location that's not where you want to be. With Default Folder X, you control the initial location shown in Open and Save dialogs.
Rename, delete, archive, and get information on files and folders without leaving a file dialog:
· Default Folder X provides many useful commands so you don't have to leave the Open or Save dialog to do something basic like renaming a file.
Make better use of Spotlight:
· Apple introduced Spotlight and Smart Folders in Mac OS 10.4, but there's no way to easily add keywords and comments to files as you create them. Default Folder X fixes this by letting you enter Spotlight comments and OpenMeta tags when you save a file.
Get a better preview:
· Apple only gives you previews in column view, and they're confined to the size of the column. Default Folder X gives you more, offering previews in Open dialogs when using column, list, or icon view, and it dynamically resizes them to fit on your screen.
· 30 days trial period.
