Ok, Cmd + D for closing without saving is not broken! Already with Lion OS X switch this yearold shortcut to Cmd + Backspace (Delete). My bad! Nothing to worry about in connection with Default folder x and ML.

Saving TextEdit documents to iCloud by default seems to be disabled with Default Folder X.

TextEdit and Default Folder X aren't disabled… it won't show you the iCloud choice and instead shows you the real sync path. Since I really have no reason whatsoever to use TextEdit (or iCloud documents) I haven't checked to see if saving the file THERE actually uploads it to iCloud.

This app isn't working for me. Just downloaded Lion (OS 10.7) and it doesn't seem to work.

According to the developer, there are issues with sandboxed apps:

ME: > comments: Hi. Default Folder X doesn't come up in Text Edit or Preview…works darn fine in all other programs. Thanks.

DEV:>Sorry - that's a known issue (we addressed it in the FAQ and on the Default Folder X release page, but that's still not easy to find). It's due to the fact that TextEdit and Preview are "sandboxed" on Lion, which changes how the file dialogs work in very significant ways. We're working on a fix.
