In PF7 there was a Favorites menu, which we could add some directories to it, then define a short cut to them. I don't see that in PF 8? Is it removed or just moved to someplace not-so-easy to find?

    Hi, 

    We are really sorry about this not working anymore. The API for that functionality (syncing "Favorites" and in general all those "Recent…" lists) was deprecated and abandoned a long time ago. In each new version of PF it worked worse. We tried having that as long as possible, but we cross the point at which it became a liability and not feature. It became a real pain, both in customer support and code maintenance. We don't want to make any kind of excuses here, but in this case, it's really Apple to blame. As far as we know, no other 3rd party application offers that sort of synchronization, even if they did they gave up a long time ago. We kept it as long as possible, but the burden of supporting it became just too overwhelming for the benefits it provides.

    To put in brief, Favorites menu is re-designed now and doesn't work now like it used to. 

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

    Hi,

    I don't want to sync anything with Finder, so there is no use for that deprecated API. I just want to be able to assign a keyboard shortcut to go to a directory. e.g show ~/MyFavorites in current pane, when I press CMD+/
    Is it possible in PF8?

    Hi,

    For some of the folders, shortcuts can be assigned via PathFinder > Preferences > Features > Keyboard > "Go" section. 
    But, as I mentioned earlier, there are no old Favorites anymore, and, at the moment, there is no way to assign a key to any folder. 

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