Two issues: firstly I can't find a feature to create Smart Folders in Pathfinder. Is there one?

Secondly, when viewing Smart Folders in Pathfinder I have to double-click them to view the contents. They don't behave like ordinary folders, which they do in Finder. Any ideas why this is and how I might fix it?

Thanks

    No, Path Finder can't create regular Smart Folders but it can save Spotlight searches. Just hit Command + F, choose Spotlight search and after you perform the search, click on the Toolbar icon which resembles a folder with a gear on top.

    Secondly, when viewing Smart Folders in Pathfinder I have to double-click them to view the contents.

    Do you mean on the Sidebar? It's working fine for me, here. I just tested it with items on the Search For section. It takes a second or two for them to show up on the file listing, tho.
