I locked a module in my Path Finder browser and it seems to be a one-use lock. I want to modify my settings to the module but there is no more gear to modify it. I tried to upload a screen shot but this forum seems to be broken too. How do I change the fonts in my Terminal Module? Thanks.

    Yes, what's going on here? Surely it can't be the case that checking a single checkbox prevents me from modifying the sidebar for the rest of time.

    Haha, thanks for the validation. Path Finder is a love/hate thing with me. Some features are just mind-numbingly bad like this one and never get fixed. But I use the Finder enough that the PF interface is a net plus so far. I have tried going back to the Finder and always find that a few things are missing.

    Also notice this post has been up for more than a month and the developer is totally ignoring it. Bad sign.

    Yeah, I’ve been using PF for ages and it feels like something’s gone wrong.

    Move your mouse cursor over the top border of the module while pressing the option-key. When hovering the top border, the gear will appear again.

    Thanks for the info! That is ... almost impossible to discover.

    I agree, this needs to be made easier. I believe a user interface should help the user, never get in the way. Assume the user will make a mistake and need help, don't force them to learn a bunch of arcane facts about your software. Thanks for the help! I'll have to write it down for next time. At the very least this should be somewhere in your documentation or findable with a google search eh?
