P9, I've been having issues (since 19.02.2020) when I try to drag a file (any) from pathfinder to other app (any), just can't take it, it's kind there's no file to select, the only way to place a file (to other app) is selecting the file/right click/open with ...
I restarted P9 several times, fist minutes works perfect then back to this issue.

Please take a look on this.

Thank you

    Same issue. PF just stops dragging; forced to quit and restart the app to get it working again.

    Super annoying.

    Hi Gio, 

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    In order for me to best assist you and try to reproduce the issue on my end, I would like to ask you to make a screen recording of the issue and send it to us.

    You can check on how to record a video recording here. After doing so, please upload it to Google Drive, Dropbox or any other storage provider and send a link to me.

    Additionally, please send us a sample (a snapshot) of Path Finder process in a separate file? This will enable us to analyze what happens with the application.

    Here's how to get it:
    1. Open Path Finder and reproduce the problem. If the problem is dynamic (e.g. unexpected action result), please try reproducing it during the sample collection.
    2. Open Activity Monitor from the /Applications/Utilities folder.
    3. Select Path Finder in the process list. To help making a selection, type "Path Finder" in the Filter field.
    4. Click the Sample Process button in the toolbar - this will open a new window entitled "Sample of Path Finder" and a sample of the process is collected.
    5. Click Save and save the sample file.
    6. Close (Command-W) the Sample window opened in step 2.
    7. Send the sample file saved in step 5 to us.

    Looking forward to your reply!

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
