Even though I have iCloud Drive on my Finder sidebar, I cannot get it to show up on the PathFinder sidebar. Since iCloud Drive is not a normal folder (at least I cannot find anyplace that it shows up as such), I can't simply drag it to the sidebar. I tried dragging it from the Finder sidebar, but this does not work and simply requires that I re-check it in Finder preferences to get it back on the Finder sidebar. This is all under PF 8.5.4 and OSX Mojave.

    Hi Alan,

    Are you signed in to your iCloud account?

    Could you please open the following path: 
    /Users/<your username>/Library/Mobile Documents/

    And drag the iCloud Drive (or "com~apple~CloudDocs") folder to your sidebar?

    To remove items from Sidebar's favorites, simply drag it off the sidebar.

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

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
