First day with the app... pretty great. One thing I can't figure out is the trash. I know it's a separate function (its not the same as Finder trash). But how do I making trashing things easy with Path Finder? I don't see any option in the default setup to trash things. How would I:

  • add a trash icon to the sidebar so I can drag and drop things to the trash like normal?
  • Delete from the context menu: right click context menu on files, there is no trash option
  • Undo Trash Actions: there is a CUT option, but unlike finder, if I COMMAND -Z (undo) it doesn't undo the cut
  • I was able to add a trash icon/function to the TOP toolbar, but everytime I drag and drop everything there, I am prompted to enter my username and password to authorize the trashing.

    Enable View > Show Invisible Files, navigate to your home folder and all HD's root folders and you'll see a folder called .Trashes. Then just drag them to your Sidebar.

    Delete from the context menu: right click context menu on files, there is no trash option

    Go to Preferences > Features > Contextual Menu and add it there.

    Undo Trash Actions: there is a CUT option, but unlike finder, if I COMMAND -Z (undo) it doesn't undo the cut

    Cut doesn't trash the item, it simply hides it from view. To undo a Cut operation, simply refresh the browser (View > Reload).

    I was able to add a trash icon/function to the TOP toolbar, but everytime I drag and drop everything there, I am prompted to enter my username and password to authorize the trashing.

    Try to repair your permissions with Disk Utility and report back if it doesn't fix it.
