I upgraded to version 6 and want to change the default terminal to my favorite. ( iterm2)
I changed the version to item under PREFERENCES. but the terminal software that runs, appears to be the version that comes with PathFinder.
I also added my version to the toolbar. It works the way it's supposed.but I can't get it to open in current folder
Version 5x had this functionality. Was it dropped in version 6?

    How are you opening the terminal from within Path Finder?
    To open the terminal in the current folder, choose Commands > Open in Terminal.

    In the previous version I just pressed the icon I dragged to the toolbar and iTerm opened in whatever directory I had selected.
    Commands> Open in Terminal works as well, ( Thanks for that tip ), but it's not as convenient.
    A hot key would be convenient or just returning the behavior from the previous version would would be great as well.

    Alrighty then!!
    I actually looked a little deeper and stated moving built-in icons to the toolbar.
    Lo and Behold the Terminal icon does exactly what I need it to do.
