Is there a way for Path Finder to export or sync sidebars across computers using, say, iCloud or Dropbox?

I work from three different computers so having the same sidebar without having to match it manually on all my computers would be a big help.

Thanks, Lexxs

    Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    Unfortunately, there is no such feature in PathFinder now. 

    In general, you can copy the following files/folders to another machine, but that won't transfer all the settings: 
    home_folder/Library/Preferences/com.cocoatech.PathFinder.plist 
    home_folder/Library/Application Support/Path Finder/Settings

    Most of your settings in PathFinder depend on Finder's preferences. 
    This is done in order to make your switch back to Finder, should you decide to, easy and comfortable. 

    Also, there is a discussion on how to export your Finder's Sidebar: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4361372
    But please note that it's rather old and may be outdated by now. 

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

    Best Regards,
