Hi,

I did not find out how to define the keyboard shortcut for "Edit / Paste Item" under "Configuration / Keyboard / Edit".
This would be a useful addition in my opinion if there is no other way to paste into the currently selected folder.
I would be keen to learn if there is another way to do this the nimble way.

    Hi there,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    To set up the keyboard shortcut for Paste option under Edit drop-down within Keyboard you would need just to select the following option and hit command or control key sequence. Have you tried doing this?

    Let me know how it goes!

    Best Regards,

    Hi Mary,

    Reason is I have not found the "Paste ITEM" shortcut but only "Paste" which
    does not do what I need to do.
    My understanding (confirmed by test) is that "Edit => Paste Item" does copy
    *into the currently selected folder
    whereas "Edit => Paste" does not.

    Say for instance:
    - I copy a file F with <Cmd><C>
    - Then I double click on folder "A" to open it,
    - Then I single click to **select** the B sub folder, 2 options (A, B) from
    there:
      - A) Then I choose "Edit / Paste" this copies the file F in the folder A
    (This is not what I need)
      - B) If instead of A, I choose "Edit / Paste Item", this copies F in the
    currently selected (ie. highlighted) folder B (This is what I need)

    I do not need to change the shortcut for (A), <Cmd><V> is totally fine for
    me.
    What I need is to change the shortcut for (B)

    Thanks,
    - Eric

    Hi Eric,

    Unfortunately, I am here to let you know that there is no such option (Paste Item) available in Path Finder and the copying behavior A option is the only one observed in Path Finder at this moment being.

    I will pass your feedback to our developer, so he can consider implementing "Paste item" behavior further down the road, however, there is no such plans for the nearest releases.

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