I'd like to ask for a small thing that people haven't been able to easily hack up for themselves.

It would be nice to have a Unix/terminal command that changes the directory to the current directory being shown in the foremost window in Path Finder.

    Hi Mike,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    Can you please elaborate on your query: are you using double pane display within one window or two separate windows and want to open the same directory of your main PF window?

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

    Best Regards,

    I sometimes use double-pane display, yes, but I'm more talking about the
    ability to be in my terminal program (not Path Finder's, this is iTerm2 in
    this case, using the hotkey dropdown) and be able to type something like
    'pfcd' and be taken to the directory currently being displayed in the Path
    Finder window.

    Hi Mike,

    I have received your response! 

    Unfortunately, I do not have any information on such option being available in Path Finder at this moment being. However, I'll make sure to pass this suggestion to our developer for further implementation consideration. 

    Have a great day!
