  • We've also discovered that the problems with QuickLook, such as images appearing slowly or not at all, are also appearing in Finder, and the issue is within Apple's QuickLook API. We've submitted bug reports to Apple, and we'll attempt to develop a more...

A lot of useful features as a Finder replacement. However, I encountered several stability issues, with the program sometimes crashing for no obvious reason. It also has problems with directories on network drives, with views not getting updated.

Just a comment IMHO:

Be careful. I think this adds a "Remove from Dock" menu to the trash can icon. It is too easy to accidentally select and deletes your trash icon. To get it back requires the deletion of a preference file and a reboot. If you subsequently decide to delete Path Finder, the menu remains requiring that you mess with the System to get it back without the menu.

Is there a chance of reducing the shadow of the desktop icon fonts ever so slightly? :)

Otherwise an excellent update!

Ditto! Altogether too handy. I especially like the dual-pane browser, it allows for visual comparison of directories, easy moving or copying of files between directories, etc. All it lacks is a built-in tool for comparing all of files in the 2 panes and highlighting the ones different. That would make it indispensable !

Since I switched, about 1,5 year ago, I found necessary to have a Finder replacement. Path Finder was one of my first app purchases and I never came back to Finder since them. It offers deep customization, complete control of folders and files, a number of excellent features and a nice UI. The rename tool and the comprehensive adjust of permissions are wonderful. Split window, smart ordering and custom shortcuts are essential resources not available on Finder. Search tool goes far beyond Spotlight and you can keep saved searches. And, if needed, you can also use Path Finder as image viewer or FTP client. Localization to Brazilian Portuguese is almost perfect, much above the average localizations we see in non-Apple apps. Points to improve are help and knowledge documentation, the possibility to reorder lateral panel groups and more control to rename tool. Although a bit expensive, this app deserves every cent Cocoatech asks for it. I am really glad to had chosen PF as a Finder replacement since the beggining of my Mac experience.

Served me well for many years. Never had any problems with it. Also important (for me) is that there is not a new update every week!

I've used it for years, through three versions now, and it's one of the small handful of applications that are so reliable and so important that I forget they're there. I think about Pathfinder only when some other application throws up a Finder window, and I think, "What kind of clumsy toy is that?" Pathfinder's features are not showy, but they are elegantly usable and make routine things easy. Like the Path Navigator, which means that I can always tell just where I am, and the Drop Stack, which speeds up sorting materials out of a Download folder remarkably. So many little things that save a mouse-click here, opening a new window there: it takes a lot of the little irritations out of managing files. And the thing has been, in my experience, rock-solid; I don't believe it has ever crashed. I wondered when I bought it whether it would prove worth the money. It was.

I used TinkerTool 5.0 to disable the Recent Items and all freezes of PF 6.4.5 stopped under 10.9.1. Previously I had to force-quit PF, remove Recent Items manually, and then restart PF. No more!

Crashes on launch. Worthless.

I'm not having any problems with the app, Panthera. Why don't you try contacting the developer at

help [at] cocoatech [dot] com

Their support team will probably want something like Crash Reporter logs or Console logs, but will be happy to help.

Actually comments like this are worthless. PF has always worked fine for me over several years, but that's not to say you have a valid issue with your particular Mac. Unless you have contacted their support team, who do provide excellent support BTW, your comment provides no value.

What hardware and O/S are you running? What messages are displayed in the system logs? Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling it?
