When I wake my macbook and go to Path Finder, the tab I was last using does not change when I alter where it's pointing.

Eg

Wake computer
First tab is pointing at '~/Downloads'
Choose 'Desktop' from the side bar
Nothing happens
To make this tab responsive again I have to first go to another tab, then back, and now it will work.

    Hi Stephen,

    Thanks for reporting this!

    Which version of macOS do you have installed? Do you still observe the issue if you only have one tab opened?

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

    Best Regards,

    Hi Jordan,

    Here's my 'about' box:

    I'll have a play with seeing if it happens with only one tab over the
    next few days and get back to you.

    Thanks

    Hi Jordan,

    I've tried it out a few ties, and it still does occur with a single tab
    open. I've attached a screen recording for you.

    Notice that in this recording I click on a new tab then click back to
    the original, and the original is still unresponsive (I just noticed
    this when reviewing the recording).

    It seems that clicking to another tab doesn't 'reactivate' the bad tab,
    but if I navigate to another tab then back using cmd-alt-left/right, it
    does.

    Please let me know if you need any other information.

    This started with Path Finder 8 by the way, I was just too lazy to
    report it before.

    Regards,

    Hi Jordan,

    I realise I should start a new issue for this probably, but I wasn't
    sure I could attach this video online.

    I'm seeing a problem with the get info panel. It seems to switch its
    focus without me doing anything. In this video you'll see me select a
    load of files I want to know the size of, then the get info panel
    changes focus. Note that I'm not touching anything after selecting the
    files.

    This is an issue I've seen since version 8.

    Hi Stephen, 

    May I ask you to follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists: 

    1. Delete Path Finder and its traces according to the article: 
      http://support.cocoatech.com/kb/installation-and-compatibility/how-...
      (The AppCleaner option is highly recommended) 
    2. Download the latest version of the app from our site
    3. Launch Path Finder and move it to the Apps folder as the app suggests

    Note: your preferences will reset.

    Let me know how it goes. 

    Best Regards, 
    Jordan
