FilePane for Mac1.10.7

14 December 2019

Empower drag-and-drop on your Mac.

What is FilePane for Mac

FilePane is a lightweight, versatile multi-tool for quick file management. It provides quick access to a variety of tasks like resizing of images, setting the Desktop picture, showing file size, copying a file's path to the clipboard, converting text documents to PDF, moving and sharing files, images, and text via AirDrop, Twitter/Facebook, etc. By default, FilePane is triggered on drag-and-drop, but you can change this to a hotkey in preferences.

How it works:

  • Just start dragging file(s), text, or image(s) across the screen to see the FilePane "drop" panel. Now drop the item(s) on it.
  • The app detects the file type and shows quick actions associated with the item(s) you've just dropped.

FilePane is not bound to Finder only, but works with other apps like Safari, mail clients, and text editors.

What's new in FilePane

Version 1.10.7:
  • Upon numerous requests the old image crop view is back! Also added a mark up to it of users with HighSierra and above.

I use FilePane mostly to move files. But you can do so much more with it. A real Swiss knife.

tried it, liked it, very neat thing...but not for me, Just too many functions, IMHO, application of this type should focus on doing one or 2-3 things at most.

Agreed with others here. This handy app ranks alongside PopClip, TextExpander, Copied, 1Password, and SnagIt in my Indispensable class of utilities.

This has to be one of the best apps I have purchased from MacUpdate! It is a non-intrusive, super easy to use, and it is very powerful. With a simple drag and 1 click, it can crop, reduce photo size, copy webpage into, forward to social media, and much more. This truly enhances my workflow and productivity.

This is a very nifty tool. In some ways, it can replace the invaluable FinderPop. I was skeptical at first, but it does work. Well worth the $5 I spent.

It's unfortunate that Mac5 has had such a terrible experience. In contrast, I have been very satisfied with the developer's commitment to a superb product, and his responsive (in my experience) has been outstanding. I have periodically reported issues to the developer over the past several years, and he has always been able to solve the problem within a few hours, or will tell me that it will need to be fixed in a future release. For example, the current release has a fix for "sub-folders sorting, if they included special characters". I reported this on April 21 and within 12 hours he sent a fixed version of 1.9.8.5 and noted that he was going to add several more bug fixes/enhancements before issuing a new release. I recommend that if one is interested in this utility to use the demo version first and see if the functions fit your own workflow. I did this, and it dropped right in, so I bought it within 12 hours several years ago. The new enhancement with the + sign on the interface is a very nice addition; it is essentially a repeat function if you are copying/moving files. A real timesaver for me. Five Stars!

Ok, I have downloaded FilePane trial version 9 (having already paid for it ), and now I am unable to activate a registration number as I don't have one to enter. My security settings allow me to download from anywhere, not just the apple apps.. so have no idea what has happened. I will not start the trip version until I have the S/N I have already paid for.

Wait, so why does FilePane cost only 5 US$ (4.50 Euros) on MacUpdate but 8 Euros on the Mac App Store?! That's almost twice as much! :(

The resize function saves me a lot of time. The zip function gets stuck in "Initializing". It will be nice if the functions window only dismiss when clicking out, and not by moving the mouse. Or maybe a option to define that.

Noticed FilePane on TUAW first. At first had trouble visualizing the drag-drop interface… I figured, for $5, why not. Really glad I did. There's a small how-to vid on the developer's site. The program works as-designed and the ability to post content to social media, resize images and created archives on the fly is very useful. Highly recommended.
