huh?

In all my open/save dialogs, when I want to switch partitions, I just scroll to the left using the scroll bar under the list of files. My open/save dialogs are ALWAYS in column view -- I didn't know there was another. The default, though, shows only a single column making it look like list view. Anyway, scrolling to the left lets you navigate through all of the columns, just like in Finder.

Save the scrolling

This hint saves the scrolling, which can be VERY annoying if you have a large monitor and have expanded your open/save dialogs to many many columns. Now, you just pick the Favorites from the pop-down, and no scrolling is required.

Save the scrolling (more)

Another quick trick is to use the Finder Go command-shortcuts.
command+shift + a,c,h,f
(to get to Apps, Volumes, Home, Favs -- in corresponding order)
