I was beginning to see this problem in PF7 recently myself, but only intermittently. I'd never seen this bug at all in any version (been a user since 2.0) before.
Point being: I think this bug may have crept in before PF8 in a late update of 7. Sometimes it just won't let me rename a file by either mouse clicking or hitting enter and I need to use the toolbar button or the commands menu item to do so.

Dear Path Finder Support Team,
Can ypu please explain to me why you close this issue, even though it is neither resolved nor does it work as expected. If this is the way you handle issues I would like to get my money back (which I paid for the update to PF8).
The forum is integrated with our CRM system and it automatically closes tickets after each reply.
Every new reply reopens it, so other users should be able to comment and subscribe to your thread regardless its status.
We don't close discussions manually.
Regarding the issue, our developers are already aware of it and working on a fix.
I think this is what's being asked above, but in PF in V8.0.1, after selecting a file with a single click, I can no longer single click again on the file to rename it. Have to now use the "Return Key" to highlight the name for renaming. This is annoying.
Check and changed all relevant setting to no avail.
I think you guys are experiencing a bug. It actually works fine for me in 8 to click to select, then click again to rename. (though i did see this pop up every once in a while in 7, but the behavior would fix itself on a relaunch)
I doubt it matters specifically, but I'm using a 3rd party Logitech mouse which runs through other drivers.
Maybe try a different input device to track this bug down and see if it's more directly related to a specific device?

I am using the internal trackpad on my MacBook. I currently do not have an external mouse to test around.
The last update did not help either.
This is definitely a bug. It worked on PF7, now it doesn't. Logic dictates: 1) Bug 2) removed functionality
