Running version Version 8.6 (1977) in Catalina 10.15 Beta (19A526h).
Can't get access to iCloud Drive from the favourites sidebar.
I have done all the troubleshooting as suggested on another thread by you guys as per below:

"Please follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists:

Make sure that Path Finder is located in the Applications folder
(in case you are using macOS Mojave) Use System Preferences > Security & Privacy > grant Full Disk Access to Path Finder

Open your terminal and paste the following command to check if Path Finder has been slapped with the quarantined extended attribute:
xattr /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

If you see com.apple.quarantine returned as output from that last command, then go ahead and run this next command:
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

You won't get any feedback or output from that command, but that's okay because you can just run the first command again to see for yourself if the com.apple.quarantine attribute shows up again. It shouldn't, and now Path Finder is freed from Apple quarantine jail. Restart your PathFinder now."

No luck.
Is this a known issue or am I missing something?
Finder can see the iCloud Drive fine and I can move, edit open files and folders as normal.
Any ideas?

    Hi Alex,

    Do you see iCloud in the Sidebar? Is it empty or only some files are missing?

    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?

    If you still experience any issues, please see this article

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

    Best Regards,

    Hi Jordan.
    That folder (iCloud Drive (or "com~apple~CloudDocs") folder) does not appear to be in my library folder.
    Below is what I see when I choose the Cloud Drive.
    It works fine in the Finder App.
    I’ve checked out the page you linked to but no luck.
    Any other ideas? Should I wait for the next release?
