'Share with Google Drive' function - or, use Finder context menu?

hi. I know there are issues with integrating all of Google Drive's functionality with Pathfinder.

currently in Finder, there is a new option to 'Share with Google Drive' for Drive File Stream files so you can share directly from within Finder, without having to go to Drive; the link brings up the share dialog window. the share menu looks like this: https://imgur.com/a/dp6gJvZ

If it's not possible to add that 'hook' to the Pathfinder right-click menu, would it be possible instead to use Finder's right-click menu instead of the (frankly limited) options Pathfinder provides?

    Hi Nick,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to replace Path Finder's context menu with Finder's one. However, as this might be a good feature request I will pass your feedback to our developer for further consideration.

    In this case, you can only use Finder's contextual menu in Finder only.

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

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team

    Thanks for the reply, Mary.

    In the meantime I'm training myself to quickly copy Pathfinder folder paths to Finder then sharing from Finder; it's an ok workaround.
