Active folders in ‘Recent Folders’ module

Am surprised that a powerful feature from v7 is still missing in v8… active folders in the ‘Recent Folders’ module which enable drag & drop. I’ve put up with the various v8 bugs and am pleased that many have now been fixed, but it remains a daily frustration, despite adjusting my workflow to work around it.

The other disappointment for me in what is basically an excellent program is the dysfunctional text-wrapping/concatenation in the ‘Size’ module. Filenames are abbreviated (or not) with no relation to the module’s dimensions, and the actual size data is uselessly hidden unless the width is extended so far that it impacts on other modules’ display performance

    Hi, 

    Could you please give us more details about the issue with the recent folders?

    As for the "Size" module issue, we've already submitted it to our developers, sorry for the inconvenience. 

    Make sure to let us know should any further questions arise. 

    Best Regards,

    Thanks for your reply

    In v7, I could drag file ‘x’ onto any folder listed in the ‘Recent Folder’ shelf and file ‘x’ would move to or be copied into that recently opened folder as required.

    This feature was broken in the shift from shelves to modules in v8… sorely missed

    Regards,
    Gary

    Bump.
    This has been driving me nuts since the v8 upgrade. I still catch myself dragging files over to the Recent Folders module, and then remembering that I have to use the Drop Stack.
    Drag-and-drop to Recent Folders would save having to drop on the Stack, navigate to the destination folder, drop, and navigate back to where I started.
    Please?
    Jason

    Hi Jason and Garry,

    Which versions of macOS and Path Finder do you have installed?

    Do you mean the Recent Folders module or the Recent Folders section of the Sidebar? With Sidebar, it appears to be working.

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

    Apologies for the delay, Jordan... didn't notice your latest post

    I'm running MacOS 10.14.5 & PathFinder 8.3.9. Am waiting for 8.5.5 because some of the bugs in v8 have made me wary of updates. Release notes for 8.5 don't mention this issue

    My post relates only to the Recent Folders Module

    Regards,
    Gary

    Jordan,
    Have not yet updated past 8.3.9. The bugs & lost features in v8.0 were an unpleasant experience, so am reluctant to update to 8.5 due to the various bug reports in this forum. I appreciate that pathfinder is being frequently updated, and will probably make the jump at 8.5.5

    Regards,
    Gary
