10.5: Show more Recent Places in Open/Save dialogs
Authored by: jksellors on Jan 10, '09 08:53:23AM
This also works on my Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger machine. Here is an Applescript to set the Recent Places count in the GlobalPreferences:

try
	set currentDefault to do shell script "defaults read .GlobalPreferences NSNavRecentPlacesLimit" as string
	display dialog "How many Recent Places to show " default answer currentDefault
	set newdefault to text returned of result
	do shell script "defaults write .GlobalPreferences NSNavRecentPlacesLimit -int " & newdefault
on error errMsg number errNum from errFrom partial result errResult to errTo
	if errMsg contains "User canceled" then
		return
	else
		display dialog "Script Error" & return & errMsg
	end if
end try
