What's new in version 5.6.6
Corrected a problem that resulted in Default Folder X not being shown in the Automation section of the macOS privacy settings when freshly installed. This prevented the Finder-click feature from working, and caused Default Folder X to complain that it didn't have proper permissions every time it was launched
What was new in version 5.6.5 two days prior
Files uploaded in a browser or attached to an email are now included in Default Folder X's Recent Files list.
Finder-click has been improved in Save As sheets on Monterey and Big Sur, providing better access to open Finder windows.
If the Finder is not running, Default Folder X's display and editing of Finder comments is now disabled. This prevents Default Folder X from inadvertently launching the Finder.
Corrected a bug that prevented items in cloud-synced folders from being ignored by the Recent Files and Recent Folders features when they should be.
Fixed an issue that prevented Default Folder X from seeing open windows in ForkLift and Path Finder under certain circumstances.
The Finder's icon is correctly shown in Default Folder X's menus again.
Added support for several Java apps: RazorSQL, RubyMine and WebStorm.
Fixed a problem with correctly detecting Save As dialogs in macOS 10.12 Sierra.
You can turn off Default Folder X's caching of tags, forcing it to query for them with Spotlight each time its Tags pane is shown. To do this, use this command in Terminal: defaults write com.stclairsoft.DefaultFolderX5 noTagCaching 1
As a long-term Mac user, i have installed demo software beyond count. Yours is one of the few that I've seen the worth in investing in.

It's one of those programs that I wonder how I lived without for so long. Before I was constantly clicking through directories every time I wanted to open, save or attach a file. Now I do almost everything in just a few clicks.
