In previous versions, I was able to drop a file from the main window onto (and thereby into) a folder that displayed in the Recent Folders sidebar. That does not seem to work now.
What am I missing?

    Hi Mark,

    It's currently possible to drag only folders to the Favorites section. 
    But our developers will surely consider being able to add files and aliases.

    Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Hi Jordan,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I think you misunderstand my issue.

    I refer to the recent folders "shelf" in the Sidebar. I do not drag any files there. The area is populated automatically whenever I open a folder. However, in previous versions, I was able to then drag files into the folders that appeared there.

    In addition, it appears that this list of folders is erased each time I quit and restart Path Finder. This is a nuisance, as the folders that were visible were still "recent".

    Please explain why these behaviours have changed.

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for the feedback. 

    PathFinder 8 was re-written from a scratch for the sake of stability so behavior may differ. 
    But we will make sure to implement the most often requested features. 

    Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Thanks for the reply. How high up on the list of "most often requested features" is what I describe here?

    Hi Mark,

    Unfortunately, I can't say for sure whether it's going to be implemented. 
    It's up to our developers to consider a particular change. 

    Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.
