Subject says it all. No version of "Show In Finder" works in pathfinder since Mojave upgrade.

    Hi Damian,

    Could you please make sure Path Finder is allowed to automate Finder in System Preferences -> Security and Privacy -> Privacy -> Automation.

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

    Hi Damian,

    Please, also check and let me know if you have Finder running at the time of using "Reveal in Finder".

    Hi!
    Thanks for the response.

    1. Yes, I have attached a screenshot, but PF has full access.
    2. Finder is always running.

    thanks,
    D

    Interesting that I do not have PF appearing in the Automation menu. I do have the option checked to have PF as the default browser. Why would it not appear? PF does appear in Full Disk Access.

    I am having the same problem. When I click on "reveal in finder" in the contextual menu, the selected item appears in a new Path Finder tab. The Finder toolbar item does the same thing. The "Show in Finder" item in the Services menu is the only way to open a Finder window with an item selected in Path Finder. I have granted full disk access to Path Finder, and it is allowed to automate Finder. Finder was running when I had this problem. I tried relaunching both Finder and Path Finder, but to no avail.

    Hi Damian,

    Do you have "Set as the default file browser" checked in Path Finder?

    If yes, could you please disable this option, relaunch Path Finder, and see if this helps?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    That fixes the problem but creates other problems. I regularly open folders using Alfred and Default Folder X. With Finder set as the default file browser, any folder I open using those applications opens in the Finder. I also sometimes use the "Show in Finder" feature in other applications (like PDF Expert), and when I use that feature it triggers Finder rather than Path Finder. Is there no way to enable the "Reveal in Finder" feature without giving up the benefit of using Path Finder as my default file browser?

    Yes it definitely works, but I most definitely want Path Finder as my default file browser.
