[] Lake Dallas, Texas - GeekSuit today is pleased to announce Client Folder Maker 4.0 for Mac OS X, a major update to their popular folder creation and management utility. Designed to automate the process of starting a new job folder for a client, this productivity tool will generate any hierarchy of documents and support folders that are preset by the user. Client Folder Maker supports unlimited hierarchy templates or presets, and is ideal for desktop publishers, attorneys, prepress operators, consultants, web designers, and others who regularly create new job folders for their clients. Easily invoked via a Menu Item, or Keyboard shortcut, the utility also accommodates auto-incrementing and limited AppleScript, PHP, Bash, and Shell scripts within presets.

Client Folder Maker was developed as a simple, unobtrusive solution to help Mac-based professionals be more productive. Now implemented as a standalone application, Client Folder Maker can be invoked via a convenient Menu Item, Keyboard shortcut. Users simply fill in the Client Name and Job Number text fields, and hit the Create Folder button. Client Folder Maker will faithfully create a preset folder hierarchy based on the client's name and job number, with all the support folders inside. CFM utilizes a very simple method for building up custom, nested hierarchies for any type of job or service. Users can easily add, rename, or delete folders in the hierarchy, as well as support documents and/or other files.

Client Folder Maker is extremely flexible; default presets are not limited to Client Name and Job Number. With support for unlimited tag variables, users can customize their client folders however they wish. Any word or phrase enclosed in braces can be used as a tag. This productively enhancement tool includes default presets for print layout and design professionals and prepress operators, as well as presets for web designers. These can be easily modified to suit the individual needs of the user.

Among Client Folder Maker's most useful features is its ability to import and export Presets via Drag & Drop. You can drag any Preset to the Desktop for setting up another machine, to save and archive, or even to email friends and colleagues. Existing Presets may also be sorted in any way in the list. You can also add useful descriptions for each Preset to better describe its use under different conditions. Client Folder Maker ships with default Presents for the design or prepress minded, as well as a simple website structure for web developers.

Users can also auto-import content from existing source files. This feature makes it easy to copy the contents from any text file into a newly created file at the time a hierarchy is created. Effortlessly create custom HTML markup, jQuery or CSS files, and insert that content info newly created folder/file hierarchies on-the-fly.

Additional features include setting permissions on files and folders, helpful for web designers who often build very structured folder directories that have repeatable content and file/folder permissions.
