Hello,
I am a new PF8 user, under Mojave.
I have problems with the Dock in PF.
- Cmd-click on app icon in Dock (or Show in Finder) doesn't work, nothing happens (NB. Finder is closed) - Trash in the Dock is dysfunctional. Secondary-click -> Empty trash does absolutely nothing, trash remains full. Also, primary-click does nothing : trash doesn't open. However, the keyboard shortcut to empty the trash does work, and the Trash on the Desktop also works (opening and emptying - but I don't like having the Trash on my Desktop). Thanks in advance,
W.

    Hi Winston, 

    We've already submitted the "Show in Finder" issue to our developers, sorry for the inconvenience. 

    Regarding the Trash folder, are you using PF Desktop (Preferences > Features > Desktop)? 

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best Regards,

    Hi Winston,

    Please check Path Finder Desktop preferences in its View options (right click Desktop > Show View options). 
    You can disable Desktop Trash folder here. 
    Also, please note that there different folders for different disks, available via Path Finder > Trash. 
    In case this doesn't work for you, you can disable PF Desktop. 

    Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Hello,
    Thanks, but you misunderstood the problem. 
    The main problem is that nothing happens when I click the Trash icon in the dock (or right-click - open). The Trash window just won't open. Also, right-click - empty Trash in the Dock does nothing, Trash remains full. 
    That's why I activated the Trash on the PF desktop. On the PF Desktop, the Trash works normally. I can open the Trash window by double-clicking it and empty it with right-click - empty trash.
    Also, keyboard shortcuts DO work. The keyboard shortcut to empty the Trash works, and a keyboard shortcut I configured to open the Trash window also works. 
    So overall, the problem is that the Trash in the Dock is totally dysfunctional. 
    Thanks, 
    W.
