Photoshop does not properly support the macOS Accessibility API in 'Export As'. As a result, Default Folder X can't enhance it.

 

I'd like to see this fixed, consider this a bug report. Thanks.

I concur that it doesn't work with Export As but it does with Legacy Save for Web which is kind of odd.

Seems like a bug indeed since the older code supports Default Folder X.

Do you mean in the save location dialog box after you click the blue Export As button? Because Default Folder appears there and is working for me.

 

So I looked in the Default Folder release notes, and for version 5.6 (the current version is 5.6.4), it says:


Due to a bug in previous versions of Photoshop, its Export As dialog does not work correctly with Default Folder X. Default Folder X now automatically disables itself in this dialog unless you are running Photoshop 22.5.0 or higher.

 

The current version of Photoshop is 23.3. Maybe that is why Default Folder is working for me in Export As; I’m running a version of Photoshop higher than the version where Default Folder disables itself.

 

After a little more digging, it also looks like Adobe did a fix for Default Folder and Accessibility four years ago, in Photoshop 19.1 (2018).

 

Which version of Photoshop are you running? Or is this a different problem than those?

Darn, you're right Conrad, just tried again and after clicking on the blue Export button, this does show up:

Don't know how I missed it before my post but it's there....

Wouldn't this be a job for St. Clair Software and not Adobe?

The two references I found earlier both point to it being an Adobe problem, especially the one where Adobe said they fixed a bug of that type.

 

I just looked at that link again and now I see that after the Adobe post I linked to, St Clair Software replied “Thank you!”
