Is it possible to duplicate a tab in PathFinder? I can't find the feature anywhere. Previously I was using XtraFinder and one neat feature was to be able in the preferences to ask XtraFinder by default to duplicate the current selected tab when hitting command-T to open a new tab. Very neat and powerful.

I'd love to have that in PathFinder too.

Thanks

Nicolas

    I agree. I migrated from Total Finder and this feature would be most welcome.

    I also migrated from Total Finder and used that feature heavily. Would love to see it added.

    I uninstalled Total Finder so can’t show you precisely, but the same feature is available in tabbed browsers, like Safari. Here are two screenshots from using the “Duplicate Tab Button” extension in Safari:

    Actually, I just discovered that Path Finder has a way of accomplishing the same thing. As long as you have Display Path Navigator enabled, you can right or control-click on the entry for the currently open tab and then choose "Open in Tab". Path Finder then opens a duplicate of the current tab.

    That meets my needs as well as the Total Finder feature did.

    I would be the next one who request for this feature.

    Simply, I want to have an option to duplicate the current tab. This is supported in Finder as you can see it here: http://superuser.com/questions/666762/how-do-you-duplicate-current-...

    Note that having a shortcut for this feature is crucial. Because using a mouse, you can follow fssbob solution.

    Regards,
    Nima

    Huh? "control-click” without a mouse? And this does not duplicate a tab; I think it opens a folder within a tab in a new tab

    This is still the major annoyance with Path Finder for me as there is no shortcut to open a new tab in the current path (instead of the default Home path). It's much more convenient for me to navigate from where I currently am rather than from a predefined folder (to which I anyway have a very convenient shortcut, e.g. ⌘1).
    Any chance of adding such a keyboard-configurable option (I don't want to click on the breadcrumb to achieve this)?
    Thank you!

    Hi Eugene!

    You can create keyboard shortcuts in Path Finder in Preferences > Features > Keyboard

    As far as I understand you, there is your desired option under File > Open > Open in Tab. It won't open the current path in a new tab, but it can open the highlighted folder in a new tab.

    Let me know if this resolves your issue.
    If it does not, we would appreciate a detailed description so that we could file a feature request properly what in turn will increase its chances to be implemented.

    I'm already using this shortcut, but it's not the same — it's not universal as I have to be aware, whether a folder is selected or not (and it's not always the case as I can be just working with files).
    I'm not sure how much more details you need besides: "please add an option to make New Tab command open current path instead of Starting Directory". Please let me know if something is not clear/not detailed enough, would be happy to clarify as this is the only remaining major annoyance with PF for me, so would love to see it fixed.

    Hi Nicolas,

    Thanks for these suggestions! I have forwarded them to our developer for consideration so that they could be implemented in one of our future cycles.

    Thanks for your continued support of Path Finder!
