After upgrading to Mojave, I can no longer drag and drop items onto the toolbar. I've tried with applications, folders, shortcuts, and text files.

    Hi All,

    A quick update on this issue:

    As far as we can tell since macOS Mojave Apple changed the behavior of the standard macOS UI component (NSToolbar) we use for toolbar in Path Finder. 
    There were no changes in Path Finder 7 or 8 regarding the toolbar behavior, but following this change in standard macOS components, "Accept dropped items" in Path Finder 7 and Path Finder 8 no longer works on macOS Mojave.
    Note that macOS High Sierra and earlier versions are not affected.

    Our developers are looking on a workaround that will bring back this functionality.

    Take a look at the workaround I used. Post #22. That may give you a hint as to what's happening or at least give you a technique you can use. I mean if you can add the terminal to the toolbar and rename it, you should be able to come up with a method to do that but hide the mechanics. However, I grant that the method is not a drag and drop.

    Hi Bob: Yes. I used the technique, and it worked, but it's a bit of a hassle, as you know, but thanks for your help!

    Agreed, it is a hassle. I guess it depends how much you want to use version 8 over version 7 or something else. Or Mojave over High Sierra.
