Some UI improvement requests

Recently I got a survey for Path Finder features. I think feature wise Path Finder is great but it could use some UI polish in the following fields.

Desktop icon shadow intensity
Already in 2015 someone reported this (I did too) and it was passed to the developers but never implemented.
So I want to bump this request because I think the Pathfinder Desktop would look a lot more friendly if this request was implemented.
The drop shadow for desktop icon text labels is very hard. It would look much more friendly to the eyes (and thus more readable) if it would approach the intensity of Apple Finders desktop text.

Ability to easily manage and edit tags in Path Finder.
Currently I have to switch back to to Apple Finder to do this (and even there it's not really user friendly)

Display of tags
Currently when adding a tag to a file of folder that file or folder gets a bright colored background 'pill' in the color of the tag. (I read the post about this here:
I understand your choices (from the article) but we are a bit further in the future now and I'm starting to find these filled backgrounds a bit too much. The colors are very bright, it even has a gradient. Uneasy on the eyes.
I would love an option to choose between displaying tags on files/folder like apple currently does with the colored dots or stick with your implementation. In the latter case I would like to be able to change the colors and appearance of tags. So e.g. lighter colours, no gradient, no rounded colors etc.

Italic font
As far as I can determine (I might be wrong) you are not using the real italic designed typeface for aliases but a 'faux' italicized version of the regular. Is that right? If so, please use the real italic versions.

That's a few things that would make me happy if these requests get implemented.

Thanks, Jan
