Pathfinder stays in front at all times

The only way I can do anything on my desktop if Pathfinder is open is to actually hide it. If it is open, it stays on top of all other windows. If I make the Pathfinder window smaller, in hopes of dragging something else over it in the corner of the screen, it stays on top, and I can only see the snippet of the other window underneath. I reallly like Pathfinder but this makes it more of a pain than a tool. Have I clicked something that I shouldn't have? Is it a bug? Please inform.

    Same issue. I'm on High Sierra 10.13.6 and Path Finder 8.3.3 (1908).

    My free trial is coming to an end soon. As I said above, I like PathFinder quite a bit. But working with an application that will get out of the way only by clicking "hide" is not a feasible part of my workflow. I really don't know if I can purchase a program that is such a pain (even if all the rest is really quite good). I'd suggest extending your free trial period until you have these quite serious bugs out of the way. This particular bug is one I might expect in a $4 dollar app for my phone (although I have to say I never have had that problem) or a BETA version. To me what you're offering is BETA and you should be collecting feedback in order to make a true release you can be proud of.

    Consider extending the free trial. For me anyway, it might make the difference between staying with Pathfinder or going back to ForkLift, which, by the way, I have nothing against, I just kinda liked Pathfinder better -- that is a Pathfinder that works like a professional program.
