Create new documents directly in open folders.

Overview

Document Palette allows you to create new documents directly in open folders. It holds document types that you frequently use and allows you to create documents without launching an editor and without fumbling around in awkward save panels.

While in an open folder, just press the key combination Control-Option-Command-N to make the palette pop up, then select a document type.

Interesting idea, but $15 is far too much for this sort of simple functionality.

DP is a great app and well worth the minimal price. I find it particularly effective for my DocBook XML workflow, as I can have my entire directory template pre-configured with images, base XML files, and stylesheets. -David

Great app however it does not seem to function if you have PathFinder as your default Finder. Would be all 5stars, if it wasn't for this.

It's about time somebody create this. This Utility is great as a web developer creating a new document has never been easier. Not to mention the Document Palette Setup part doesn't need to be running in order to use it. Only for setting up new documents.

The documents you add to Document Palette don't have to be empty. You can create a file containing whatever you'd like and add it to the palette. You will then be able to use this file like a stationery pad or a template.

I too would like to know how this app is in anyway useful? Why would you want a bunch of empty files associated to different applications ? - making a generic file and 'alt' dragging on that file would work for me.

'Option' dragging wouldn't be the same. Where would you store this file? On your desktop? What if it was covered by a window? I can think of several cases where this would be awkward. In any case Document Palette is the most direct way to create a file.

in order to Alt-drag a file, don't you have to FIND the file first? This app allows you to accomplish it without finding the file....

in response to the previous point, this replicates what one of the windoze shell extensions does. personally I find it a very useful feature.

Can anyone explain how this tool could be in any way useful ? I just don't get how an empty file set into a folder could be useful or worth $15?

I spent a great deal of time deciding on a fair price for Document Palette. I think Document Palette is similar to various Dock replacement utilities and other application/file launchers & application switcher utilities. Many of which cost about $20. These utilities don't allow you to do anything you couldn't already do with Mac OS X. Document Palette, on the other hand, empowers a user to do something that couldn't previously be done and cost less. $15 is a fair price. However, you're welcome to contact me and suggest a price.
