File Cabinet Pro version 6.8 has been released for macOS. This update adds a new service named “Save Web Location to File Cabinet Pro.” This Service allows you to quickly save website shortcuts to File Cabinet Pro from many apps via the services menu. Watch the demo video below to see how it works.
There are a few ways you can sort files in File Cabinet Pro. This brief tutorial will explain all the different ways you can change the sort policy in File Cabinet Pro.
Option One: Use the Context Menu
One way to change the sort policy in File Cabinet Pro is to right click on the background of the window to bring up the context menu. Then from the context menu hover your mouse over the “Sort By” menu item to open up the submenu and choose your desired sort policy.
Note: You can also sort in descending order using any sort policy from the context menu by holding down the Option key while the “Sort By” submenu is exposed. While the Option key is pressed down, the menu while show a downward arrow to indicate descending order.
Option Two: Use Hotkeys to Sort
You can also use hotkeys to change the sort policy in File Cabinet Pro. Below you will find a list of the key combinations you can use to change the sort order:
Date Last Opened
Date Last Opened Descending
Date Added Descending
Date Modified Descending
Date Created Descending
File Size Descending
Option Three: Click Column Headers in List View
Another way you can change the sort policy in File Cabinet Pro is to click the column headers in list view.
Clicking the same column twice will toggle between ascending and descending order. You can add or remove columns in List view by right clicking the column header and selecting columns to add or remove from the context menu.
Option Four: Use the “Arrange By” Button in the Toolbar
You can also sort files using the “Arrange By” pull down button in File Cabinet Pro’s toolbar.
When this button’s menu is showing, you can also hold down the Option key if you wish to sort in descending order.
If you do not see the “Arrange By” button in File Cabinet Pro’s toolbar, right click on the toolbar and choose the “Customize Toolbar” menu item. Then you can add the “Arrange By” button to the toolbar (see screenshoots below).
I created a simple subclass of NSGestureRecognizer, ATForceTouchGesture, to simplify the process of adding Force Touch features to macOS apps. You can use this gesture recognizer to add a feature like force clicking to start editing a label (see the screenshot below).
