Path Finder and High Sierra

I know the High Sierra issue has been addressed. I am a loyal Path Finder user for years because no other Mac file manager comes close.

With that being said, I am concerned about Path Finder being ready for the release date. We are at Beta 9 presently on High Sierra. GM should be coming shortly, the Apple event is in 8 days and the Public release could be available as early as next Tuesday. The beta has been out for almost 3 months now and that would seem like plenty of time for Path Finder to ready. At least have a public beta for HS developers and Public Beta users to be working out the bugs.

I use 4 Mac desktops and a MacBook Pro on a daily basis. I have held off upgrading the majority just because of Path Finder. The Beta has been extremely stable since day 1 (surprisingly) and all of my applications work fine (including other file managers Forklift, Total Finder, Commander Pro). But again, they don't compare to Path Finder.

Also, I can't find where Path Finder has been updated to use Airmail 3 as am email client. Another great Apple alternative program.

Would also like to see Google Drive integration like DropBox.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Hi Brad,

    I was recently informed that High Sierra optimized version of PF7 is going to be available along with High Sierra release. 

    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!

    Best regards,
    Jordan,

    Well today is the day. HS should be released. If your update isn't available, please put me on the Beta list for the fix and V8. I have beta tested for over 30 years for Windows and Mac. I always run the MacOS & iOS developer betas.

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Hoping for a PF update today as well, although I somewhat suspect HS's release date will be announced in Cupertino but not commercially released today. Sounds like they still need a GM to be tested and some display bugs abound. iOS 11 is in much better shape, although they haven't yet given us a GM candidate either...

    Hi,

    We'll release the update before High Sierra, when Apple publicly announces the master beta release.
    The update is undergoing some tests and will be available soon.

    Apple released the GM of High Sierra today, Sep 15. Is there a release of the PF7 update as indicated above?

    Thanks,

    GM loaded, no trace of a PF Beta...
    Sure you folks will manage it within the week until Apple releases the final? Anyway, if there is a mail-list announcing the availebility put me on.

    So far the Path Finder 7.6b1 (1722) is working as expected for me under High Sierra.
    Thank you Path Finder Team.

    Hi Brad,

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    Path Finder 7 beta for High Sierra can be downloaded via the link: http://get.cocoatech.com/PF7_BETA.zip
    This version still has a few issues which will be fixed in the next beta, now the app crashes in the icon view, so you can use this beta in list or column views only. 

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

    Best Regards,
    Jordan

    Working perfectly fine for me. The only issue was that after installing the commercial HS release, PF changed the order of my items in Places in the sidebar, although it could just as easily have been the Finder, with PF syncing the undesired changes the Finder had made. All fixed in a minute anyway. Icon view, which I don't generally use, seems stable so far.

    I reinstall PF7, and doesn't work.

    I'm on my knees, begging the version 7 compatible with High Sierra. Have you estimated the time for you to publish this version fully compatible?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I use the v 7.6 downloaded from the main page. This version work perfectly after a complete uninstall with Clean My Mac 3. The sad thing was to lose all the meticulous configuration.

    Sorry for the incoveniences for my previous comment.

    Bug report- Path Finder (PF) 7.5 doesn't Identify or install update.

    Time: Date: 26 Sept 2200 EST
    Hardware: Macbook Pro 14,3

    Procedure:
    1) OSX Sierra- launch PathFinder 7.5, select the 'Pathfinder/Check for Updates' menu: shows as current version.

    2) Close all apps, install High Sierra.

    3) Launch Path Finder. CMD+Tab shows app 'running' but no menu-bar icon or file-window display onscreen. Closing PF requires 'force quit' operation.

    Workaround: manually download PF 7.6, copy over 7.5

    I just downloaded 7.6. It will not install because it now says that it requires an administrator. I'm the only user on this box and user info confirms administrator is me.
