HoudahSpot and Default Folder X

HoudahSpot 5.0 works with St. Clair Software’s Default Folder X to deliver files where you need them.

Default Folder X enhances open and save file dialogs on macOS. It provides quick access to favorite folders and recent files. With Default Folder X you can manage and organize files without having to jump over to Finder.

Select “Search with HoudahSpot” from Default Folder X’s Utility menu
Find files: Select “Search with HoudahSpot” from Default Folder X’s Utility menu

When you are in a file dialog and need to search for files, you can now do so by selecting Search with HoudahSpot from Default Folder X’s Utility menu. HoudahSpot will open a new window ready to search the current folder. Here you can search by file type, tags, content, dates, or any other file property you can think of.

Once you have found the files you need, you can use the Results > Default Folder X menu in HoudahSpot to send these to a waiting file dialog.

If you are not yet using Default Folder X, go download the free demo version and make your open and make save dialogs work as quickly as you do.
