I'm still in love with Pathfinder, although the time with PF8 was filled with rough experiences and feels like an abusive relationship in hindsight. At the same time, PF seems to be back to a 18month release schedule. Upgrade price was 18$ this time... (by the way, all PF8 users got promised 12month of up to date usage, seems somehow fair). I'm happy the developers keep working on it and I'm willing to continue the ride, but they are cashing in on my good will at the moment. If it's another rough ride, I'll hand in the divorce papers for sure. But for now, I'm still willing to let the app be my work horse on the mac.

Using this app forever, but it has become an absolute memory hog and many things just don't work, cant preview raw images (finder can preview) often wont connect to network drives and many small little things needs some serious QA and bug fixes

Struggling to find the words to describe just how bad this application has gotten. I've archived most of my email but still found an email from 2008 and I'm pretty sure I've been using it longer than twelve years. Anyway, it just doesn't work properly. Batch rename is permanently greyed out. Creating a new file seems to work but does it appear in the file listing? No. When you overwrite it with another new text file does that appear in the listing? No. How about the drop stack? Broken. Why does it take over as the foreground application every time you switch to a space? Why does it hang? Why does it lock up my machine(s)? I bought PF8 in 2018. I barely use it now. It is a terrible piece of software.

9.0.6 has not fixed the drop stack. It still collapses when files are removed from the stack, either by dragging them elsewhere or using the Remove Top/All command in the module. Locking the module when the drop stack is expanded does not prevent it from collapsing when it's emptied. Does anybody know how to achieve this?

This version breaks my heart. I'm licensed for version 8 and EVERY SINGLE DAY there is a popup telling me to upgrade to version 9. The development team has mastered the art of nagging. I would think Cocoatech would want people to feel good about their app, but rather they want to nag us for money.

They have a wonderful application, but awful support!!! I had purchased last year PF8 and I was upgrading without problem, until PF9.0.3 Then, at the completion of the year subscription, they asked me to pay again if I want to keep PF9. I paid again and I had PF9.0.3 Then, 10 days after my purchase of PF9.0.3, the app asks me to upgrade to PF9.0.5 but I should pay again!!!! For more than 1,5 month, I'm trying to contact them (emails, support, forum & facebook) mentioning my problem, they confirm that they received it, but nobody answers. That means that we should pay for every minor release or stick to the app we have. If we don't upgrade, then we must live with the various bugs of the early releases. Not a professional behaviour by a serious company!

A while ago, I tried PF 8, but found it way too buggy especially with the sidebar. So I reverted back to PF 7 (I've used PF since v 4). Recently, I tried PF 9 and actually liked it. However, Cocoa Tech wants me to pay the full price for PF 9 ($36) instead of an upgrade price ($18) since I didn't buy into very buggy 8. :( So it's back to PF 7. Nice way to lose an on-going customer CT.

No access to iCloud or Documents in PathFinder or am I hopefully missing something? Been a paid user on and off since you came out ;) I do have to admit you have been more than fair with the pricing on your updates and for people to complain is just plain ridiculous. Most people don't get how difficult and time consuming managing a project of this size. I feel for you and wish you the best. I think it is Steve, correct?

I'm sticking with Version 8 since I don't want to get caught up in a yearly subscription. However, at this juncture, version 8 keeps popping up an "upgrade to version 9!" message frequently. I dismiss it, but it's really annoying, especially since I turned off "Check for new updates" in preferences. I may go to ForkLift if this keeps up. I've loved PF for many years, but either sell me a license for a given version or leave me alone.

In the new version, does the drop stack remain open? I can't seem to keep it open in version 8. It always collapses eventually and I have to open it prior to dragging files into it. Really useless.
