Ever wanted to use Abracode's Shortcuts to work with Path Finder running in 64-bit?

Since this old thread is not of any use, I thought I would give it a try myself.

I created a File/Folder Context Provider that seems to be working, although I have not tested it that much yet.

If you want to give it a try, create the following Apple Script:

set selectedList to {}
tell application "Path Finder"
    set pfSelection to selection
    set nrSelected to count of pfSelection
    repeat with i from 1 to nrSelected
    set pfItem to item i of pfSelection
    -- Corrects for error when hidden files are showing
    try
        set end of selectedList to (path of pfItem as alias)
    end try
    end repeat
end tell
return selectedList

Save it as Path Finder.scpt in
Shortcuts.app/Contents/MacOS/ShortcutObserver.app/Contents/Resources/Alias Context Providers/ and/or
Shortcuts32.app/Contents/MacOS/ShortcutObserver32.app/Contents/Resources/Alias Context Providers/.

Let me know if it works for you!

EDIT:
Hmm... posted a bit too soon.
I noticed it only seems to work when selecting one file at a time, so no batch operations :-(

I'll see if I can figure something out. If anyone comes up with a solution, please let me know!
